VIDEO – Modern slavery, hidden in plain sight

Kate Garbers: “Slavery: it is a powerful word. Civilizations trade wealth. Even cities have been built on the global trade in people. It is a word that conjures images of the transatlantic slave trade of cotton-picking, of sugar plantations, and of slave ships. For many of us, we believe that slavery was abolished with the William Wilberforce movement. However, for a staggering 46 million people, slavery is not a historical fact. It is a present reality. “
