Except you've been living under the rock then you've probably not heard about the slave trade going on I Libya. I saw videos and pictures going viral on Instagram I was wondering if this could be real or some type of click bait thing but NO they were real.
I thought slava trade was abolished a long time ago but I was apparently wrong. This evil act is still going on like it was never abolished.
SLAVE TRADE STILL EXIST
Human beings are being sold for as little as 400 US dollar in Libya and even cheaper depending on the person's stature. The more masculine a man is the more expensive he is sold while the women are being sold as domestic workers and in worse cases as prostitutes.
when will enough be enough? these people are also human beings, they breathe the same air and their blood is "red" just like every other person. so why subject them to slavery because of the colour of their skin? Their decision was wrong but that was not enough reason for the maltreatment.
Yeah, I know some of you might be wondering what these people ("the slaves") are doing in Libya as they are not Libyans? well, these people that are subjected to slavery are from different countries in Africa and they travelled by land to Libya because they want a better life in Europe but unfortunately not all that glitters is GOLD. They thought the journey was an easy one, they never thought of the consequences.
you know that feeling of when you want something really bad and you don't even think of the repercussions of the decision you're about to make. that was what happened to these people they wanted having a good life, by all means, unfortunately, things didn't end well as they thought.
I hope what happened serves as a lesson to others trying to go to Europe by land and I also hope that African leaders will step-up and better for the youths.
