Stop Slave Trade in Libya
This petition had 37,517 supporters
In Libya, African migrants are being sold as slaves. This has been infamously confirmed by a CNN undercover investigation in November 2017. The migrants undergo horrible conditions. Sanogo, a 22-year-old migrant from Ivory Coast, said, “we were captured and locked in a small room with 60 other people." He added that they were "not able to wash." He recounted, "they hit you all the time, especially if you're big like me, until the blood flows—with sticks, metal, the butt of a gun." Maxime Ndong, a Cameroonian migrant who spent eight months in Libya, reported, "if you resist, they shoot at you. There have been deaths."
Slavery is contrary to human decency. This must cease immediately and we are calling out to all of humanity to sign this petition in hopes that those in positions of authority, power, or influence will do everything they can to put an end to this barbaric practice.
