Up to one third of Uzbekistan's workforce is made to labour on cotton
farms; denied ownership of the land they work, and forced to labour without
reasonable wages they are unable to opt out of cotton cultivation -- those who
try are subject to violence, imprisonment and intimidation. Tens of thousands
of children are forced to pick the cotton harvest each year. Crucially, the suffering
caused by this industry comes at the hands of the government. It is the
Uzbek state, not the country's mafia that instigates the abuses connected to
the production and sale of cotton turning its people in to a slave nation.
