How oil companies have poisoned and displaced the Huarani and Cofan indigenous peoples of the Ecuadorian Amazon. 'Why do the rich countries come to take the poor's land and resources?' The title refers to one employee's remark that they were gaining their land for "trinkets and beads", because they did not understand what they were signing.

The corporatization, sexualization of breast cancer etc. Critiques the focus on a biomedical cure rather than prevention and regulation of carcinogens (i.e. the vast majority of funding goes to curing disease rather than preventing it altogether).

Discusses the "chain of love" that occurs as more women from the global North and South enter the workforce. As men and many Northern governments refuse to take on the responsibility of care labor, privileged women pass it down to less privileged women and so on. For example, the film discusses how many Filipino nannies who come to work in Europe have their own nannies for their children back at home. Care labor is a huge "export product", bringing money to their country as they pour the love they feel for their own children into another family.

Trapped (2016)
It is unconstitutional in the US to make abortion illegal so rightwing politicians attempt to regulate it out of existence. I mean it is so ridiculous when the law does not even match up with the science nevermind the opinion of women who need access to family planning. And it makes me so angry because these restrictions affect the poor the most. The rich have money to go somewhere else.

About the flower industry in Columbia and how literally toxic the source of the cut flowers you find in flowershops is. You have a situation where American seeds are being grown in Columbia and then exported back to America. Workers can find no other means of supporting themselves and so are forced to work in the horrible conditions.
