Check out the new Stop Firestone campaign video below! It is focused on child labor on the Firestone plantation. Keep reading to find out more.
This video features interviews with two child laborers on a
rubber plantation in Liberia operated by the Firestone tire company.
Workers have to meet a daily production quota which is too high for one
person to achieve or their low wages are halved. As a result, workers
are forced to bring their children to work.

This video was produced by a Liberian organization called the Save My Future Foundation in conjunction with their report on conditions on the Firestone plantation.
