    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.

It's hard to believe that 27 million people in the world today are in slavery, that is double the number of slaves transported from Africa during 17th and 18th centuries.   Kevin Bales has visited most corners of the world where slavery is practiced and has researched and written extensively on the subject.
