Modern Day Slavery By: Kayla Homedes

I will be talking about Modern Day Slavery, Slavery is when another person owns you, slaves are being affected by this problem because they can’t do anything about it or they will get killed, or deported.According to the International Labor Organisation (ILO) around 21 million men, women and children around the world are in a form of slavery. There are many different characteristics that distinguish slavery from other human rights violations, however only one needs to be present for slavery to exist.

People were affected with this problem 50 years ago because the slaves didn't have food and because every cent the slaves spent on food will be add to the money they own their “owners”. Another reason why people were affected with this because slaves were treated horribly by making the slaves be prostitute, forced marriage, trafficking, forced labor, and bonded labor.

I predict 50 years from now there won't be slavery because there would be human robots to do anything people need or wanted. I also predict that in 50 years from now slavery will not be a thing because there will be transporting servers.

Two quotes from people that wanted to stop slavery are "The moment the slave resolves that he will no longer be a slave,his fetters fall. He frees himself and shows the way to other. Freedom and slavery are mental states"-Mahatma Gandhi. "I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed more if only they knew they were slaves"-Harriet Tubman."It is my hope that as the Negro plunges deeper into the quest for freedom and justice he will plunge even deeper into the philosophy of non-violence"-martin Luther King Jr.

Well, something that I can do is to share the word about what's happening. Also, I would make a group of all people that want to stop slavery and go to different stated or countries or cities and have a campaign to fight to stop slavery.Another, thing that i will do is make a website for slaves and then they can email me and tell me their stories and i'll help them.
