Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

Christians (and Others) Must Fight Slavery–Again

Wasn’t slavery abolished in the 19th C. with the U.S. Civil War representing the last gasp of this horrid institution? Sadly, NO.  More of the world’s population is enslaved today than ever before in history.  So, answer the Niger Appeal and give the gift of freedom this Christmas.  Then, insist in letters to newspapers, calls to elected officials, etc. that we end this horror. Be careful of when and how you shop: Much of the garments we wear and the goods we consume, are made with slave labor. Learn more, then educate others, then agitate. Become a 21st C. Abolitionist today.

  1. As far as I can ascertain, slavery has existed in some form since civilization began. Abraham Lincoln freed American slaves, but the institution existed in Brazil until the 1880s. And it still exists in Africa and the Middle East .
