    In Brazil, they estimated around 200.000 people working under conditions equal to slavery. I'm not glad about this.

    If we add those people, numbers will rise even higher..but are you sure it´s only 200000? According to the number of inhabitants that looks a bit underestimated.

    Hmmmm if you look at the countries involved none of them could be considered white (I think Russia was added to balance things out).

    IMO this is just the Walk Free Foundation getting some free publicity for itself by making sure it's estimates were higher than others. It's complete guess work at best and they've included guess work on forced marriages (which is not the same as slavery). I mean is a housewife a slave if she has no automatic right of divorce and cannot reasonably expect to disobey her husband? Or is this closer? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12687088

    That's what the media say here. But, surely, there are much more. And some of them are not even Brazilians.
