Modern-day Slavery in Brazil  <br />
Train from Santa Ines (Maranhao State) to Maraba (Para State). Thousands of poor people from Maranhao and Piaui states make this journey towards south Para, an area perceived as an "eldorado" for the many employment opportunities it has to offer. As some of the workers end up becoming trapped in unfree labour conditions, the line has received the nickname "Slavery Express" by some groups fighting slavery in Brazil.
