“Modern Day Slavery”

Saw this story while still up in DC but couldnt get to it until now:

Seven Cuban doctors sue Cuba and Venezuela over “modern slavery”

Seven Cuban doctors and a nurse sued Cuba, Venezuela and the state-run oil company Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa) for alleged conspiracy to force them to work in conditions of “modern slaves” in order to pay off the Cuban debt with the Venezuelan government for oil supply.

The defendants “intentionally and arbitrarily” held the health staff in “debt servitude” and the staff became “economic slaves” and “political advocates,” according to the complaint filed in the United States, Efe reported.

And some people want to normalize relations between the US and Cuba and have tourists pay for visits to the plantation.
