"Silent World of Majority"
Photographer: Anabela Sequeira

The Story:

This photo was taken in a beach where these workers toiled around the clock to provide the raw materials that allow others to lead a more comfortable life. In this case working for a luxury resort under construction.

This is the sad way how big companies systematically accumulate capital through the organised exploitation of labour. That's the most dramatic silent world of people, in cheap labour countries forced to work for subsistence wages.

There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.—Mahatma Gandhi
