Anti-Slavery Day marked in cities across the Globe

Hundreds of campaigners gathered at Westminster October 18 to Walk for Freedom across London against human trafficking in the capital.

There were similar Anti-Slavery Day demonstrations in cities across Britain and the Globe. Up to 27 million men, women and children are trapped in slavery.  The international Walk for Freedom aimed to draw awareness of modern day slavery.

The 27for27 walk aimed to target 27 boroughs in London with people – many of them young – eager to make the public aware of the reality of the current issues with human trafficking.
The big day was organised by A21 a global non-profit, non governmental organisation dedicated to the fight against human trafficking.  There’s an estimated 27 million people in bondage across the globe, there are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in human history.

Men, women, and children are being exploited for manual and sexual labor against their will.

Events, including art and culture have been held in most British cities – all with the same message to bring an end to human trafficking and modern day slavery.
