Yasin Kakande on the BBC

Jan 28th, 2016 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared

bbc-logoZero Books author Yasin Kakande recently discussed his new book Slave States on the BBC. Slave States is a stark expose of the enslavement, trafficking, sexual starvation and general abuse of workers in the Gulf Arab Region.


Kakande's expose of the seamy side of life in the Gulf is an important counterweight to the free pass the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) gets in the western press. Oil corrupts, and the oil alliance that the West has with primitive tribal 'emirates' and the Saudi kingdom has poisoned world politics for long enough. Time for a new world order, where the practice of kafala plays no part.- Eric Walberg, author of Postmodern Imperialism: Geopolitics and the Great Games
