    Libyan Slave Trade

    Libyan Slave Trade

    LIBYAN SLAVE TRADE - There are more than three times as many people in forced servitude today as were captured and sold during the 350-year span of the transatlantic slave trade. What the ILO calls “the new slavery” takes in 25 million people in debt bondage and 15 million in forced marriage. As an illicit industry, it is one of the world’s most lucrative, earning criminal networks $150 billion a year, just behind drug smuggling and weapons trafficking. “Modern slavery is far and away more profitable now than at any point in human history,” says Siddharth Kara, an economist at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy. If you are interested in learning more about the Libyan Slave Trade, check out this episode for more information!

    Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen

    Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen

    YEMEN CAN’T WAIT - One of the most devastating conditions in Yemen is the current famine crisis caused by a lack of food supplies and medical care. Despite the ongoing humanitarian assistance, 15.9 million people wake up hungry every day. It is estimated that, in the absence of food assistance, this number would go up to 20 million. Malnutrition rates among women and children in Yemen remain among the highest in the world, with more than a million women and 2 million children requiring treatment for acute malnutrition. More than half of all families are buying food on credit, up by almost 50 percent compared to pre-crisis levels. Watch this episode to learn more about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen and how the famine, COVID-19 pandemic and cholera outbreak have made it worse.

    Police Brutality in Canada

    Police Brutality in Canada

    POLICE BRUTALITY IS REAL IN CANADA - Police brutality has had a long history in Canada, especially against Indigenous groups. Over the last century, indigenous people have been the main victims of police murder and unnecessarily violent arrests. Canada's Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said its officers fatally shot 61 people across Canada between 2007 and 2017. In 22 of those cases, the memo said, the victim was Indigenous. Twelve deaths, or 20 per cent of the overall total, took place on a reserve or in an Indigenous community. Several Indigenous people were also killed “off-reserve” – in such cities as Yellowknife, Burnaby, B.C., and Golden, B.C. To learn more about police brutality and discrimination is Canada, listen to this episode of our podcast!
