“Bricks are the primary unit of construction across World They are cheaper than concrete so almost everything is made with brick– especially in rural areas. There are 80,000 brick kilns across the Asia. We estimate that an average of 40 families work on each of these kilns and that each family is required to make 1000 bricks per day. That means 25.5 million people are living in slavery conditions. And so many of these workers are young children. Often they work all day and are denied education. They work in isolated areas, shielded from the eyes of society and hidden from the protection of the constitution. The laws don’t reach the kilns, so the workers live in constant fear of violence and retribution. The kiln owners are so rich and powerful. Their profits represent nearly 3% of Asia’s GDP. They put their friends and relatives in the legislature. They bribe and intimidate the police. It is very dangerous to speak out against them. I’ve been attacked and threatened so many times that I no longer fear death.” Haleema Murad (one of the victims)
