#AbolishAfricanEnslavement in Libya

This petition had 92 supporters


It is time to stop the abuse and enslavement of Black Africans in Libya.

It is quite painful to write about the fact that this 2017 our Black brothers are being sold as slaves in Libya for a few hundred dollars a piece. Our brothers and sisters are being maltreated, abused, humiliated, raped and killed without recourse. 

But the Libyan government knows about it and is part of it. According to a UN report from June this 2017, [http://undocs.org/S/2017/466 the Libyan Coast Guard and the Department to Counter Illegal Migration are directly involved in the enslavement and trade of Black African migrants who they capture.

More worrisome is the fact that the foreign governments implicated in deposing Moammar Ghaddafi and consequently destabilizing the entire African continent are again involved in supporting and assisting the Libyan government agencies implicated in the UN report. 

Quoting from the Council of the European Union, "EUNAVFOR MED Operation Sophia is the EU naval operation disrupting the business model of migrant smugglers and human traffickers in the Southern Central Mediterranean. The operation has two supporting tasks: training the Libyan Coastguard and Navy and contributing to the implementation of the UN arms embargo on the high seas off the coast of Libya in accordance with UNSCR 2292 (2016) and 2357 (2017)."

Additionally African governments especially the Nigerian government which was one of a few to vote for the action taken against Libya are today doing next to nothing to address the Libyan abomination.

We hereby petition the United Nations, European Union, African Union, United States Government, and Nigerian Government in particular and other governments to rise up to their proper responsibilities to arrest the situation in Libya immediately and abolish the new dehumanizing slave trade via this axis. The world must not sit idle as fellow human beings are openly abused and traded at this time in our history.

It is time to rise up and #AbolishAfricanEnslavement
