now at last it’s true

in 1807 william wilberforce passed the slave trade act against the british slave trade.
at a time where black men were branded “to make them know they no longer belong to God, but to a man”
they whipped them.
beat them.
in 1854 abraham lincoln stood up in peoria speech and declared his own opposition to the slave trade.
famous examples of the ‘abolition’ of slavery.

but,
as it is,
there are more human slaves now, than there ever has been before.

12 million to 27 million people in this world today are enslaved…
every twenty six seconds someone is sold into sex slavery.

how many fucking times will great leaders have to stand up and say that this is wrong, before we listen?


“remember…. God made men equal”
