Please buy only slavery free chocolate this Easter. That’s the message from ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans) and a *coalition of social justice groups, in the days leading up to Easter Sunday on 16 April.
Australians will spend about $2 billion on chocolate this Easter and much of it will have been produced using child labour from West Africa. These children pick cocoa beans – a key ingredient used to make chocolate. Many of these children are forced to do this work.

We call on the Victorian Government to ensure that Victorians and their families are supported through increasing support for housing, employment, and community strengthening (particularly in geographic areas of need).

For Christians, Lent is a time of repentance, and of preparation for our special annual commemoration of the heart of the Christian message: that our God, in Christ, became human as we are, that he conquered sin and death, and asks us to love him as he loved us. Repentance requires a change in a person – it requires that they develop a new understanding of their actions and themselves. This change in us should make a difference to the people we encounter, and to the society that we are part of.
