Modern Slavery

Did you know that there are more slaves in the world today than it was back before slavery was “abolished?”

Did you know that slaves are much cheaper today than ever before?

Did you know that people are born into slavery, live their whole lives in slavery, without ever knowing that they are slaves?

Poverty, hunger, desperation are all things some people know to take advantage of. Every day, they manage to lure men, women and children into slavery. Slavery exists everywhere, even though it is forbidden everywhere.

We will look closer at modern slavery since it can be closely linked to poverty, and we will use photographer Lisa Kristine’s TED talk as an introduction. lisa_kristine_human_slavery_14
