We're hearing more about child slavery lately, and that's good. But it's a big, daunting problem — I often feel pretty helpless on this side of my computer. Well, here's an instance where we can do something. There's a bill before the Indian parliament to greatly restrict child labor in India. If a lot of people sign a petition in support of the bill, it will increase the pressure to pass it.

If you're so inclined, you can sign the petition to encourage the Indian parliament to pass the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Amendment Bill.
