In the Ivory Coast of Africa, children as young as 7 are forced to work long hours collecting cocoa beans, often beaten if they work too slow or don't meet their quota. Some are sold for as little as a couple of dollars, trapped into a life of slavery1.

"2. Warner Bros. dismissed the findings of the investigation, simply stating that they were 'satisfied’ that fair labour practices were being used in the production of their chocolates;"

Well I am not so easily satisfied. I am quite happy to avoid not only the chocolates but Warner Bros. movie's as well. And I will.
