Four Marist Sisters recently attended the ACRATH(Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans) National Conference held in Sydney from 18-20 February. They heard case studies of young Australian women forced into marriage in their parents’ home countries and how temporary visa holders become captive and compliant labour for unscrupulous employers. They also rejoiced in hearing the Nestlé announcement that all products produced in Australian and New Zealand now use ethically sourced cocoa.
