For the past three days ( or more) The medias have been (finally) releasing footages & testimonials of human beings from various nationalities ( Nigerian, Ghanaian, Senegalese etc.) held in captivity in Libya ( Just Google it if you feel like it). Some of them were auctioned for as little as $200 -$400.
Those HUMAN BEINGS were unfortunately NOT being treated as humans. They were treated like common animals, with no heart or souls... Some of those men fled their birth countries because of war, corruption, poverty, famine... You name it & although Yes, 99 % of them may have crossed borders illegally ( By the way define illegally for me... 🤔..I digress for now), it wasn’t a reason for them to be abused, raped, spit on, castrated or mutilated... No, this certainly isn’t a new “Thing” or “trend”... It has been happening for many years in Libya and around the world ( Unless, you research it, you probably won’t hear about it) and it has got to stop. 🛑 Yes, governments NEED to intervene, but so do “regular” civilians like You, Me, US. IF we can all draw attention to Bullying, Sexual Harassment, Racism, Homophobia, Terrorism, Animal Rights, child trafficking, organ trafficking and the likes, THEN something as dehumanizing as “Modern Day slavery” should NOT be ignored. It is a cry for help... I have been debating whether or not I should post my thoughts 💭 about the subject for a while ( and honestly, that shouldn’t even be up for debate) and I’ve decided to share 2% of my thoughts... I have signed petitions, but what else Can I do? I’m lending my insignificant voice to others around the world, in the hopes that this disgusting practice ends.. It is 2017 & My heart bleeds for the African continent that is constantly being treated like dirt, although 💯 % of its resources are the REASON why the rest of the world 🌎 is being “developed”. Hold your family members tighter than ever today & please HELP whoever needs it as much as you can. Love & Blessings, 🌬💗💛❤️💜🖤🧡💙💚🙏🏽✨
