Now we know the Index isn’t perfect and can’t answer every question about modern slavery, but this is an important starting point.”<br /> <br /> Gordon Brown, former UK prime minister, said: “Andrew Forrest and Walk Free’s pioneering work to expose the full scale and horror of child slavery is a landmark moment in the struggle for children’s rights. He has undertaken the vital work of revealing the full evidence that will allow us to campaign for children to move from exploitation into education, from oppression into opportunity, from slavery into school.<br /> <br /> “With this evidence, we can now plan the end of child slavery in our generation. If anybody is in any doubt that slavery is a thing of the past you must look at the Global Slavery Index produced by the Walk Free Foundation and Andrew Forrest. It exposes the horror and injustice of millons of people condemned to slavery in the 21st century. It is the most powerful call to action, and that action must be heeded by the international community.” Meghalaya - Where women call the shots (Podcast) tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2013-10-16:2182797:Video:2315850 2013-10-16T18:23:05.717Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/meghalaya-where-women-call-the-shots-podcast"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/l8tah2vExAV1NecAEvh-CAfl9rhKlIzX8wHPCG9dFjwt7Huspc-oBB7U49ophuVkOQDwcz0ulyFAQQob-xe7IZMNVF-HYzFY/tmp56376.png?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Many Indian women cry out for equality, but a matrilineal culture thrives with little parallel in the northeast.<br></br> <br></br> Another Smart Dog Video production for Atheist Nexus.…<br></br> <br></br> <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/meghalaya-where-women-call-the-shots-podcast"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/l8tah2vExAV1NecAEvh-CAfl9rhKlIzX8wHPCG9dFjwt7Huspc-oBB7U49ophuVkOQDwcz0ulyFAQQob-xe7IZMNVF-HYzFY/tmp56376.png?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Many Indian women cry out for equality, but a matrilineal culture thrives with little parallel in the northeast.<br /> <br /> Another Smart Dog Video production for Atheist Nexus.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2013/2013/2013/10/meghalaya-where-women-call-shots-2013103152936824511.html">http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2013/2013/2013/10/meghalaya-where-women-call-shots-2013103152936824511.html</a> Dozens killed in stampede at Hindu festival in India tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2013-10-13:2182797:Video:2314774 2013-10-13T23:50:11.625Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/dozens-killed-in-stampede-at-hindu-festival-in-central-india"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/DQZ40zyDI516NcDNriXvLpBSGV2pHKXLAYdOlDBDftCvngwjIPuPhSVr8ep*x0-GlZdvrjSnatBQHugDQcPguzU02H2djt6h/1041505353.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>A stampede on a bridge outside a Hindu temple killed at least 60 people in India on Sunday and dozens more may have died after they leapt into the water below, police said.<br></br> <br></br> "Sixty people are confirmed killed and the figure could reach 100," local Deputy Police Inspector General D.K.
