The Di­a­mond Em­pire tells the sto­ry of a pow­er­ful car­tel set up to keep di­a­monds rare and cost­ly af­ter they were found in large num­bers in south­ern Africa; a car­tel that one fam­i­ly, the Op­pen­heimers, now have un­der their con­trol. It shows how the di­a­mond in­dus­try sup­plied vi­tal in­dus­tri­al di­a­monds to both sides dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, while at the same time launch­ing the ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign that made a di­a­mond ring a pre­req­ui­site for ev­ery bride. It shows how di­a­monds con­tin­ue to be used to fund wars through­out Africa and to be cut for mere pennies by chil­dren in In­dia for the US mar­ket.

Sometimes we have no choice, we work till dawn. When you work all night you become dizzy and your eyes hurt because you can’t take any breaks. SANTA’S WORKSHOP takes you to the real world of China’s toy factories. Workers tell us about long working hours, low wages, and dangerous work places. Those who protest or try to organize trade unions risk imprisonment. Low labor costs attract more and more companies to China. Today more than 75% of our toys are made in China. But this industry takes its toll on the workers and on the environment.

The European (and American) buyers blame bad conditions on the Chinese suppliers. But they say that increasingly hard competition gives them no option. Who should we believe? And what can you do to bring about a fairer and more humane toy trade?
