Freedom for Big Sugar Slaves

http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docid=8046348031279865399&hl=en&fs=true

An interesting look at the sugar industry, and just how plain white sugar has been prepared for our tables by the blood and sweat of modern day descendants of african born french slaves… who are still to this day enslaved by the monopolized sugar industry. You’ll see how the British traded France a tiny tropical island of sugar for Canada. The island, isolated and densely packed with sugar, is still the center of sugar production to the world and home to the 4th and 5th generation slaves who have provided us with our “Texas tea…. sweetener” for over 200 years… Definitely appalling to watch as this kind of thing is ignored by the media…
