End Enslavement of Black Africans in Libya

In October of 2017, CNN revealed, with video footage, that a number of Black African men in Libya are being auctioned off like "pieces of merchandise", rather than being regarded as what they are: human beings. Sold for $400 to $800, these young men are handed to their "masters" for purposes of forced labour and exploitation.

As the largest sector of human trafficking, forced labour is an extreme violation of human rights. Many of these victims are among the tens of thousands of refugees and economic migrants that pour across Libya's borders in search of a better life across the Mediterranean Sea. Instead of being given the chance to flee conflict and seek better opportunities, traffickers lure these refugees to lives with no freedom, none better than the situations they ran away from. 

The Canadian Parliament is aware of this situation in North Africa and while Prime Minister Justine Trudeau has made a statement, saying "Canada will not stay silent in the face of such inhumane atrocities," little progress has been made to free the victims of such oppression. 

Please help bring justice to the innocent victims in Libya by signing this petition calling on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to use his power and intervene.
