Chocolate companies, Mars, Nestlé, and Hersheys got caught in a lawsuit illegally enslaving thousands of African children for cocoa production, allowing children to be severely injured through instances such as machete accidents and kidnappings. The children captured, well under the age of 16, were promised with enough money to feed their families but of course these colonizers will promise anything to anyone for power and resources; instead the children remain isolated from the world, not paid at all, and even isolated from other children.
A study by the University of Chicago detailed that 1.56 million enslaved children worked these cocoa plantations in the Ivory Coast and Ghana, though there exists other plantation types which other poor working class Africans work. While these colonizer-owned chocolate companies got called out way before this lawsuit, they continued disregarding these call-outs on their forced slavery of children while publicly lying to the masses that they would take action to “phase out” their use of forced labor; all just to satisfy the sweet tooth of colonizers.
As a matter of fact, these plantation owners decided not only to lie to everyone about their plans for continuing their slavery, the same lawsuit states that the “defendants have engaged in various schemes to mislead the public…but the reality is they continue to profit from the labor of millions of children harvesting cocoa for these multinational giants.”
This should come as no surprise especially considering the past lawsuits other corporations paid millions of dollars to settle.
It is the first time that the cocoa industry as a whole engaged with this kind of lawsuit and rightfully so; our third Principle of Unity states that all the problems the Colonized face come directly from colonialism and this only proves our point further.
These companies exploit our CHILDREN’S labor and lives while destroying the land only to break them away from their communities to overflow their bank accounts however, this slavery has gone on for centuries; ever since the colonizer nations decided to leave their desolate cold and wet rock they now call europe. Black Hammer salutes the eight plaintiffs that are bringing this case to the united snakes despite fears of retaliation from the plantation owners; Issouf Coubaly, Sidiki Bamba, Tenimba Djamoutene, Oudou Ouattara, Ousmane Ouattara, Issouf Bagayoko, Arouna Ballo, Mohamed Traore are their names. However, we know that justice will never be found in an illegal settler court that rests upon centuries of genocide and slavery of Colonized Indigenous and African people.
This is why we need Hammer City; a city with no rent, pigs, c*vid, or white people! The colony enslaves us and forces us to work in the colony, even forcing our babies to work as we’ve shown today. Hammer City is the material solution that our people desperately need, not the prayers, vibes, and “solidarity” that these white leftists claim to have with our Colonized siblings around the world and Black Hammer is providing the only solution to overturn the genocidal system of colonialism; Colonized working class dictatorship over our lands, lives, resources, and labor through Colonized Unity.
We will continue to fight every single day for the liberation of our people because it will no longer be the colony which determines our future but rather the revolution and the Colonized Masses of the world. If you would like to fight back against the illegal settler colonial system and the sellouts that allow for this kind of enslavement to go on within their countries, join Black Hammer today and help build a world where no one lives at the expense of another!
