Calls mount to rescue migrants from Libya 'slave trade'

Calls mount to rescue migrants from Libya 'slave trade'

"EU migration policy has increasingly prioritised preventing refugees and migrants from reaching Europe, in the full knowledge that doing so is facilitating the abuse of hundreds of thousands of women, men and children who are trapped en route". Britain, France and Sweden were drafting a statement, the report added. "This is not the moment to pass the buck".

Also we need to remand the people in Africa deceiving the migrants and collecting their money with promises of Europe in the first place.

LL Cool J also weighed in, urging Western leaders to step in and remove the slave traders since "the west used Military force to help the rebels remove [former Libyan dictator Muammar] Gaddafi" in 2011 following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bombing campaign.

The Libyan government has since started investigations into the matter.

The video which showed an unidentified Nigerian man being auctioned led to protests in France where hundreds of people, took to the streets and protested in front of the Libyan Embassy in central Paris on November 18.

The French police officers had to resort to tear gas to disperse the rally which turned violent.

Pictures of slave markets and gross abuse of black Africans are awash on social media after CNN uncovered the disturbing human trade in the once safe country that is now in tatters after the overthrow of Muammar Mohammed Abu Minyar Gaddafi.

Also, Foreign artists joined voiced with the African artists.

"I abhor these appalling acts and call upon all competent authorities to investigate these activities without delay and to bring the perpetrators to justice".

The UNSC set up a sanctions regime in 2011 which enables the world body to impose a global asset freeze and travel ban on "individuals and entities involved in or complicit in ordering, controlling, or otherwise directing, the commission of serious human rights abuses against persons in Libya".

"People are rightfully outraged", said Human Rights Watch researcher Hanan Salah.

After the video was released, many took to social media condemning the issue. They used the hashtag #LibyansAgainstSlavery.
