Order Details
Slavery has been officially abolished in 1888 but today, slavery takes form under coerced labour. Landowners in Brazil do not physically own slaves; instead they just threaten their workers in order to make them work. I would like for this paper to consider the state’s response to coerced labour or how social movements or NGOs have tried to intervene. Primary sources will be required (newspapers, accounts, etc) and articles are permitted as well. I have found a book, maybe it can be of some use if you are able to find a copy. It is written by Binka Le Breton and the title is: “Trapped: modern-day slavery in the Brazilian Amazon”.

History: Contemporary Slavery in Brazil
Introduction
“Slavery has been officially abolished in 1888 but today, slavery takes form under coerced labor. Landowners in Brazil do not physically own slaves; instead they just threaten their workers in order to make them work.” In this modern world, slavery is still alive. The contemporary form of slavery began in the 1960’s-1970 in Brazil with the introduction of modern farming technique that called for more laborers in ranches. In the Amazon, the growth of large scale agri-business placed more pressure on the available resources and this led to massive deforestation an act that accelerated the demand for forced labor. In this effect, most men and women have been lured away from their homes in city slums with promises of working for huge ranches in the rural areas for decent wages which happens to be false. This has made them to be trapped in a system of debt bondage as upon arriving, they are presented with bills for; transportation, food and housing which is the beginning of brutality. The slaved workforces are overworked under threats with no or little pay under the guidance of a gun by collaboration landowners and corrupt federal officers. This form of contemporary slavery is prevalent in rural areas especially under cattle ranches, sugar cane industry and in the garment industry in urban centers
