Don Jazzy in a series of tweets, wrote:
Today, being the international day for the abolition of slavery, It’s important to be aware of how slavery has been modernized even after it was abolished in the 19th century. Today, we have issues of human trafficking, forced child labour and marriage. Let’s raise awareness.
There are even commodity apps creating online slave markets where people are sold into servitude in exchange for money. Most of the victims are women and children. They go through a lot of physical and sexual abuse/exploitation.
I also charge us to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery. The liberation we seek starts with our minds. Once the mind is unconstrained, our freedom is assured.
