The cost of agricultural produce in Portugal’s Alentejo region

"Our researcher Miguel Filipe Silva joined two students of the International Master in African Studies (EIMAS ERASMUS), Diana Takacsova and Oladeji Odunola Alexander, in a research about migrations, new slavery and forced labour in Alentejo, around olive oil and red fruits production.


 The precarious conditions of the immigrants, many of them Africans, the low production costs obtained by multinationals at the expense of the dehumanisation of the worker and the work, and the impotence of the authorities are reported here. The photos and accompanying texts by Diana Takacsova do not require the other "1000 words".
