It’s horrible to read these facts, I would never think there are still so many people in our modern world that still suffer slavery. I definitely say No to slavery, we are humans and should live in decent conditions and have our own choice how we want to live, who we marry and not be forced to have sex. Thinking about the poor children undergoing this makes me sick.
Makes many sick… and when royals and famous people seem involved it becomes even more scary.Thank you for your comment. No to slavery indeed it is a crime against humanity.
Thank you for bringing this day to the forefront. Sadly, most people are more interested in Columbus day or Taco Tuesday. It’s nice to see someone mentioning the days that actually matter (or at least should matter).To many, I think the thought of slavery is an “in the past” issue and doesn’t exist today but that’s simply not the case. I don’t know if it’s ignorance or retreating to a safe place and simply ignoring it, hoping it will go away (out of sight, out of mind).Again, thank you.Scott
Hi Scott, Slavery is still a hot issue in many countries. And for many involved, a daily struggle beyond words. Let us hope it becomes an event from the past soon. And let us not fall into the trap of abuse or exploitation… of the weak and the poor indeed. And speak up, where we are to stop it.Thank you
This is a great opportunity for people to say the little they can to make things better than it is. Slavery was abolished some years back, well as it’s different for different countries, the international day has made it uniform. This is one thing that traumatized our past and thanks to the predecessors who made it possible. Thanks
Yes… a scare for many and a blame on many cultures and powers as well indeed. Thank you
Its to be remembered always that’s slavery is not accepted and this act should always be in the corner and never to surface again. This day should be marked and remembered worldwide. Its an ill act against ones fundamental right and since we all have equal rights, no one should be deprived of it. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post. I will share it on my social media page as well.
Thank you BensonTake care
Its very thoughtful of you to share this information, one of the greatest things that ever happened to humanity was the abolition of slavery, many people lost their lives in this cause and to see it not being a waste is really amazing and pleasant. Celebrating the international slavery abolition day is a good one.
Yes… and many are still longing for freedom indeedThank you for reading
It is lovely to have come across this article, I have read extensively about how different countries got to work around their abolition of slavery and it’s really amazing to see that it’s been celebrated as an international achievement. I’ll share this to some other platforms, it needs to reach out to more people.
Yes, absolutely!Thank you for sharing awareness
