    Slavery

    Slavery

    Steve McQueen’s 12 years a Slave premiers is giving its Irish premiere today. It tells the story of Solomon Northrup, who was kidnapped in Washington D.C. in 1841 and sold into slavery. Yet slavery has not been confined to the history books, it is very much a live issue today. The International Labour Organisation estimates there are around 21 million people in slavery across the world today. Sean was joined by Aiden McQuade, director of Anti Slavery international, the oldest international human rights organisation in the world.
