40 million people are enslaved worldwide—cultivating billions of dollars for the human traffickers engaging in this abhorrent practice. However, we must remember that the monsters behind this fatal practice live within our own borders.
As recent imagery showed proof of a massive slave trade within the north-African country of Libya surfaced in our media, the world responded in shock and horror. Americans responded in shock and horror. But should we be surprised? Should we look to other countries to blame when it was the American government that murdered the Libyan President, Muammar Gaddafi? When Gaddafi, the leader of this nation for four decades, was murdered—the Libyan government spiraled and receded into a state of crisis; paving the way for a power struggle to uprise and liberties to be lost in the midst of the great disturbance to their leadership.
The “leaders” are responsible. And every nation owning the privilege to watch, rather than endure this atrocity within their own homes, is responsible to attack this human rights crisis immediately.
This Saturday, December 16th, the Bay Area will either choose to step up in the name of justice for the Libyan people and the refugees caught in the destructive practices plaguing this nation, or we will fail and repeat America’s dark history of disregarding Black lives.
