This chapter focuses on the exploitative colonial practices experienced by young Malagasy men. It takes a look at the demands of colonial service and introduces the Service de la Main d'Oeuvre des Travaux d'Interet General (SMOTIG), which is considered as the most horrible form of colonial enslavement. This chapter also discusses the legacy of colonial labor policies, which has been considered as a troubling obstacle for the presidents of Madagascar.
