C29 Forced Labour Convention.

C29 Forced Labour Convention.

I am indebted to Kathy for bringing the above document to my attention. It makes for very interesting reading for all those people who were forced to work in institutions run by the State and religious orders. One can’t help but wonder if the Irish government who are so reluctant to address the issue of the Magdalene laundries and Bethany homes, are aware of this document.
