Dozens of people congregated outside the Libyan Embassy in London on Sunday to condemn slave auctions held in Libya. Many of the protesters came from the African community who branded current scandal a continuation of European slavery. One protester said “we have so many people who try to deny their involvement in slavery and, you know, try to say that Africans were doing it too each other... Еще, and this and that and that, and they're ashamed about it and they're embarrassed about it. And, this is happening again. This is an opportunity for them to do something.» There have been protests worldwide after footage emerged last week of sub-Saharan Africans being sold at slave auctions for as little as $400 (€335). People smugglers are known to target migrants en route to Europe. After widespread outrage, the Libyan Government of National Accord opened an investigation into possible human rights violations.
