The Price of Sugar
    #599196 - 12/01/11 01:36 AM (5 years, 1 month ago)



The Price of Sugar: On the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic, tourists flock to pristine beaches, with little knowledge that a few miles away thousands of dispossessed Haitians are under armed guard on plantations harvesting sugarcane, most of which ends up in US kitchens. Cutting cane by machete, they work 14 hour days, 7 days a week, frequently without access to decent housing, electricity, clean water, education, healthcare or adequate nutrition. The Price of Sugar follows a charismatic Spanish priest, Father Christopher Hartley, as he organizes some of this hemisphere's poorest people, challenging the powerful interests profiting from their work. This film raises key questions about where the products we consume originate, at what human cost they are produced and ultimately, where our responsibility lies.

US Government subsidizes corn sugar, third world plunged into abject poverty.

Welcome to economic consequences that one cares about as long as they get their diabetes.

I like my diabetes in my red kool-aid with that one yellow fruit

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Agreed. I would however like an affordable alternative to government diabetes.

Some may say I'm a dreamer.

Either him or I go to Mexico.

I'm sure the drug war down there is great for those practicing medicine.
