End the Slave Trade in Libya
This petition had 87 supporters
Migrants and refugees stuck in Libya are being sold into slavery, CNN reported earlier this month.
The combination of Libya’s splintered government in the wake of Muammar Gaddafi’s fall and the influx of people from Nigeria has led to a situation where stranded men and women are being held against their will and, in some cases, sold into slavery or prostitution.
“As shocking as it seems, it’s indeed true. The reason [the slave trade] can happen is because there is really no rule of law across much of Libya,” Leonard Doyle of the International Organization of Migration told Al Jazeera.
We can do our part today by signing this petition and making our voices heard. Encourage the members of the United Nations and our government, to pressure the Libyan government to stop these autracities to mankind.
