Slavery Today

Britain abolished slavery on 1st August, 1834 and, over the course of the next several decades, the rest of the world followed suit and the Atlantic slave trade was brought to an end.  Today, I'm highlighting two countries, Niger and Brazil, where the abhorrent practice continues.  Anti-Slavery International is one of several organizations fighting modern-day slavery.  Amnesty International and  the Coalition of Immokalee Workers are two others.
