UK: Tensions flare as London protesters rally against Libya slavery

Around 300 protesters blocked Whitehall and several other roads outside Parliament, in London on Monday, to protest against the enslavement and sale of black Africans in Libya. Protesters chanted «We are not for sale» and marched under the banner «African lives matter, hands off Africa.» The action was organised by African Lives Matter among other activist groups. It took place as a petition... Еще upon the matter was being debated inside Parliament. 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.
