Africans Rally Against Shocking Revelation of Modern Slavery in Libya - Theme: Free Africans in Libya.
"Recently, horrible and dehumanizing images and videos have been circulating on social media and forums depicting the maltreatment of African youths said to be seeking to travel to Europe via Libya. We have not verified all these images and videos, but they are so inhumane and undeserving depictions of man's inhumanity to fellow man, and ought to be decried with immediate effect and urgency. Such pictures/video show bloodied young men and women tied or hung with ropes, stabbed and cut with knives, or flogged and whipped, and so on. Some seem dead already while many others appear abandoned, hopeless, and helpless in empty detention camps, and even in cages being offered for sale to willing buyers and racketeers.
These victims could be anyone's sister, brother, nephew, niece, aunt, son, daughter or such. We must not only speak up and say no to these acts but also take part in actions such as protests to bring more serious attention to these ills while hoping that these evil perpetrators meet their karma and face appropriate justice in due course."
