USA: Protest against slave auctions in Libya A crowd of people gathered on Tuesday in front of the Permanent Mission of Libya to the United Nations headquarters in Ney York City to protest against slavery in Lybia. Protesters demanded the immediate end to slavery, showing signs reading “No more slavery in Africa”, “Stop abusing women in Libya” or “We are not for sale”, as they sang chants like... Еще “Africans are not for sale” or “Africans, stand up for your rights”. “This is why we are calling to everyone; the UN, the EU, the African Union, all the African countries, presidents, all the African community, and the planet community to come and say no to injustice, and no to slavery.”, claimed protester Bour Bnambele. The protest was prompted by footage released last week, which showed sub-Saharan Africans being sold at slave auctions for $400 (€335). This revealed the issue of smugglers targeting migrants en route to Europe. After widespread outrage, the Libyan Government of National Accord opened an investigation into possible human rights violations.
