Charity concert: Free The Children Japan

Child labour is rampant in many parts of Asia, made worse by foreign multinational corporations that buy their goods at minimum prices through shady middlemen, thus avoiding responsibilities that they would legally be bound to follow in Japan, Europe, or the U.S.

Tonight a charity concert will be held in Tokyo on behalf of Free The Children Japan to support the children in underprivileged communities in Mumbai, India. Moreover, the funds raised from this concert will be also used for the support of children who were victims of the tsunami that struck Sri Lanka on December 26th, 2004.
