Slavery Today

Many believe that slavery ended with Abraham Lincoln.

Many are wrong.

Slavery is a modern issue, one that needs to be addressed. It cannot keep going on.

It is estimated that twenty-seven million people are enslaved all around the world.
Eighty percent of these people are women and children.
These people are forced to become camel jockeys, prostitutes, beggars, etc.
Children are sold, made to become prostitutes, and forced into child labor.
Of course, the list is extensive.
They do not and cannot speak out, it means there survival, they are too afraid.
Billions of dollars are made per year, because of the slave trade.

Four types of slavery are most common, chattel slavery, debt bondage, forced labor, and sex slavery.

What can we do about this?
Visit websites, see for yourself what is going on. *
Write to political people, I cannot stress this one enough. The 2008 election for the president is coming up. SEND THEM STUFF, emails, letter, call them. Even if you can’t vote, I am only thirteen, I can’t vote, but my parents can, my family can. If you raise awareness, people will notice. If I send an email, and you send an email, then they may start to think about it. Doing this would take maybe an hour of your time, these people spend there whole lives in slavery.
It’s time we help.
Are you with me?
Tell people about this, find information, help, and pray.
Do not say you can’t do anything, there are no excuses.
I’m too young…
I’m too old…
No one will listen…
If you talk people will listen, the time is now.
You are not too young or too old, together we can do this.
*I got most of this information from www.iabolish.org
It’s a great website so check it out.

Thank you for your time, please do something about this problem.

Much appreciation,

Hannah
