Australians will spend about $2 billion on chocolate at Easter and much of it will be chocolate produced using child labour from West Africa. With this in mind, we're asking everyone to please buy and sell only slavery-free chocolate this Easter. This is the message from ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans) to everyone intending to buy chocolate, or run chocolate fundraising during Lent.
