L’ESCLAVAGISME MODERNE

Les formes modernes d’esclavage qui touchent particulièrement les femmes et les enfants représentent une grave urgence. A cause d’elles, des millions d’être humains souffrent aujourd’hui encore dans des conditions inhumaines.
Prenons l’exemple de la guerre, c’est une forme d’esclavage qui touchent les humains en générales et les femmes et enfants en particulier car dans la guerre c’es la femme qui souffre beaucoup plus que l’homme. Parce qu’elles ne sont pas aptes dans tout les cas une fois rencontrés par les rebelles elle sera violé et même traité comme esclave dans leur camp.
C’est pourquoi toute voix qui s’élève contre cette réalité inacceptable apporte une contribution irremplaçable et d’autant plus lorsqu’elle atteint un public aussi vaste.

MODERN DAY SLAVERY

Modern forms of slavery that affect women and children in particular, constitute a serious emergency. Because of slavery, millions of human beings continue to suffer under inhumane conditions.

Take the example of the war, it is a form of slavery that affect humans in general, and women and children in particular, because in this war women are suffering far more than men. This is because they are not able to fight back in all cases, once they are seen by the rebels, they may be raped or even taken as a slave in their camp.

Any and all voices raised against this unacceptable reality make an irreplaceable contribution, especially when it reaches such a wide audience.
