Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher launch anti-slavery campaign in Haiti

Posted on: March 31, 2010

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have unveiled a new campaign against child slavery in earthquake-ravaged Haiti to ban the unethical practice.

The Hollywood couple joined hands to voice their concerns over the country”s ”restavec” system, in which a child is sent to work as a domestic servant for another family as a means of supporting themselves.

The pair has claimed that the slavery prevents youngsters from gaining an education and experiencing their childhood.

And the stars have used their Demi & Ashton foundation to sponsor a pledge to encourage members at a United Nations meeting on Wednesday to donate to Haiti and call for the restavec system to be banned altogether.

“Let”s support the Haitian people, but let”s support them the right way, and let”s support all of them; don”t forget about the 300,000 children that are enslaved. It”s going to take a lot of loud voices,” the Daily Express quoted Kutcher as telling website Mashable.com.

Moore added: “It”s about creating the awareness that draws the line of what”s acceptable and unacceptable. Any human being enslaved is unacceptable. As long as one is enslaved, then we are all enslaved. It”s an atrocity to stand by and let this happen.”
