The ongoing slavery and human trafficking in Libya has to stop. The Fundamental Human Rights as written in Articles 1-5 and 30 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: 

Article 1.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Article 2.
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

Article 3.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

Article 4.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

Article 5.
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

Article 30.
Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.

Based on the Articles stated above, Libya has dishonoured and disregarded the rights of the people that they enslaved and sold as less than humans. Some of these people are from my own country, Nigeria and could have been people I know. Human rights and security of persons are things that should never be joked or tampered with.

Let's come together to petition the UN to sanction Libya for their crimes against humanity and disregard for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
