Help Stop The Slave Trade In Libya

This petition had 500 supporters

My name is Rosie Hunt and I am 14 years old. I am passionate about feminism and consider myself to be a Human Rights Activist.

A video of men appearing to be sold at auction in Libya for $400 has shocked the world and focused international attention on the exploitation of migrants and refugees the north African country.

The footage and subsequent investigation conducted by CNN last month has rallied European and African leaders to take action to stop the abuses. On Wednesday, the leaders of Libya, France, Germany, Chad and Niger and four other countries agreed on a plan to evacuate thousands of migrants stuck in Libyan detention camps.

The grainy undercover video appears to show smugglers selling off a dozen men outside of the capital city Tripoli.

As of right now, this abuse and down-right disgusting, inhumane behaviour is still happening in Libya, and I want to help to try and stop it.
