Thousands of children are tortured and raped repeatedly in private run juvenile prisons...let's keep this in mind.


Women, need to realize, that the fastest growing population of the Prison SEX RAPE SLAVERY businesses is in fact, WOMEN. That includes, WOMEN JAILED FOR SELF DEFENSE WHICH IN THIS NATION, SISTER, WE DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TOO, we are not MEN nor ANIMAL, women get 50 to Life for Self Defense, against rape, abuse, repeated abuse and torture. Even for not dying while getting beat near to death, a man can kill or torture a child, and the WOMAN-MOTHER will be the one who gets the longer time in prison [if he even gets charged], AND IF the woman gets sentenced with mental health--she can expect to be Lobotomized by force.




I am on a mission, to find Reasonable [because some of us are NOT rich and our grocery budget is limited and no our children do NOT want to live on beans and water LOL] Fair Trade-Slave FREE chocolate,

and I'm talking about baking chocolate, not just candy bars. So, I've seen tons in UK and in Australia,
but where I am at,

the choices are nill to none.

I've thus far found some candy bars, that's it...and only dark chocolate. And they were 'seasonal' so, I will be checking Whole Foods which is the only place I have found online that even Sells Fair Trade chocolate in the States, at least where I am.

This Really makes me angry, I'd like to SUE Hershey's and the Rest of them for selling Child Slave Chocolate, to think that My children and I for years, baked, cooked, drank and ate, chocolate harvested by Child Slaves!

It IS infuriating, it really is. How dare they really? And the fact that they hide this from the public, is a type of Fraud.

America the Free--but oh, the chocolate your kids eat--its made by kid slaves.

Yep, just dandy ain't it?

Makes me sick....really does.

I will be writing a lot on this because Valentine's Day is coming up, and we know that day is a huge one for selling Chocolates---not only that but the flowers too, often are farmed by slaves. I stopped buying flowers long time ago due to that [unless its local food market and grown here, but even There you have to be careful--some exploit migrant workers].

OK then,

will tell you what I find out, when I find out.

On another note, I want to re-post this here, because the work this man is doing to save young women and girls/children who have been trafficked into sex slavery, is just inspiring...

in my book, a man who really Shows Christ in Action. A man who gives me hope, that yes, we Can make a difference.

Also, to the side bar, I added two links to blogs, two Amazing women, who work pretty much Daily, advocating for human rights. Green Consciousness, whom I've corresponded with for some time, does so much for advocating for animal rights and women's rights, including confronting oppression in Islam. I make mention of that because it's one of my pet peeves is the selling OUT of these women by so many Western feminists...and Green is not Right Wing [nor am I for that fact] yet she is diligent in standing up for the rights of ALL women, no matter what religion, culture, region, etc and well, I just love her. Though she may not get a lot of popularity, she plugs on, non stop...writing and advocacy and she's dedicated her Life to standing up for those with little power. Her blog roll is one if not The BEST resources for just about Any issue pertaining to women's human rights. She is truly, a warrior for women whom I am honored, to have been able to meet and work with.

Another blog, I have her listed in two other places, Live Honestly, another amazing woman who works hard in connecting and advocating against trafficking of women, children and animals. She dedicates her photography to the causes as well. I have corresponded with her and she's just a really awesome person and she inspired me.

You know, its not Easy writing blogs like this because they Can be controversial and they aren't always about subject matter that women want to read about...they can hit nerves, you know, not only that but they are not always cheerful and bright. More so however, is that they don't necessarily fit into any 'box', e.g. I am Christian but I am more to the left on numerous issues and I am a feminist. Not exactly your run of the mill, if you know what I mean...however I am not anti-maternal or anti-feminine either,

I guess you could say, some of us are just an eclectic lot who care about people and don't like to see suffering and want to do something, to make this world, at least try, a better place. Its hard because writing on issues as Individuals rather than as a member of a group think tank, well, you don't always have the support you would if you were writing with a group, per se.

But we do it, because we believe in the issues, they matter to us. And when I first started blogging on issues I often times became frustrated because if I didn't 'fit' into a certain 'political or religious or ideological' mold I would get the nasty comments and so forth and it was easy to just think,

ok Why am I doing this? But then I met Green and then a few other individuals who are just that, individuals who really do not care if they fit into a certain personality type or group or what have you...who write/advocate/work because they want to see change, real change,

and those individuals so many times inspired me to keep on, to not give up, to keep working for change as well as change in My own life and in my own person/even my relationship with God, to become what I preach, know what I mean...

to Live what I believe, and as I grow and learn....all I can say is, I didn't do it alone. I had a lot of inspiration and help and encouragement from many of the bloggers I have listed, especially on the women confronting patriarchy in Christianity, women confronting patriarchy and abuses in other countries/religions and people,

who have dedicated their lives and work, to lift up others.

And as I write and learn about many issues, I learn about myself, good and bad. And how it is important, to live in our lives and to love others, as much as it is, to be vocal about injustices elsewhere. Of all the lessons I have learned,

that one, is the Most important of all. I would have never thought, years ago that the activism would challenge me as a person and would eventually lead me to my Faith...because you see, you can't just rage at the darkness you have to also walk the walk, not as Easy I am finding. Yes, I admit see sometimes we can rage at the injustices of the world to mask our own demons, so you kind of have to deal with both,

confront the darkness in the world and the darkness that is in ourselves. [if we are being honest] I always found the first to be much easier, but love works like that, eventually it touches you and then you see yourself in the mirror and realize how you have hurt others too, in word or deed, in action, and it may not be like a gross human right abuse but you know,

hurt is hurt, and when you realize how those little hurts are all connected to the bigger picture,

well, it just changes you. God does work in mysterious ways, that's for sure. Well anyway...

that's it in a nutshell, now I"m off, to see about that chocolate. I will post here, what I find out.

Peace, Love and Solidarity,
