BBC Our World – Silicon Valley’s Online Slave Market (2019)

BBC Our World 2019 Silicon Valleys Online Slave Market

Google, Apple and Facebook-owned Instagram are enabling an illegal online slave market by approving and providing apps used for selling domestic workers in the Gulf.

BBC News Arabic’s undercover investigation exposes the people in Kuwait breaking local and international laws on modern slavery, including a woman offering a child for sale.

At the centre of this powerful investigative film is Fatou a 16 year old in Kuwait City who has been there for nine months. We follow her rescue and journey back home to Guinea, West Africa and ask what’s being done to control these apps?
