Human Trafficking- Modern Slavery

4 May

There is still slavery everywhere. Hope to put an end to it one day. In New York two girls from West Africa were force to work everyday for seven days and sometimes even up to 14 works a day. They were forced to work at a hair salon and braid peoples hair. All the money they made went straight to the slave owners. They said they made about 4 million dollars off of them. and from CNN “It was like being trapped, like being in a cage,” said “Nicole,” now 19. CNN agreed not to use her real name.

“I always have to behave, behave, behave, behave. No freedom at all.”

The girls’ families sent them to the United States after being assured they would receive a better education. But once they arrived, they were forced to work in hair braiding shops across the Newark area — just a short drive from New York City, right in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty.

The girls, who are now young women, have never spoken publicly before, until now.”

Joseph Kony, the world’s worst war criminal. What does he has to do with slavery is.. in 1987 he over took a rebel group and renamed it to the Lord’s Resistance Army(LRA).  When Kony realized he was running out of fights, he thought he need new tactics. So, to add to his army, he started abducting children in Uganda and training them to fight and kill others. He has done a lot of damage, going through Uganda, but now through Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, and South Sudan. The LRA has abducted  more than 30,000 Kids and has displaced at least 2.1 million people.
