Modern day slavery, just like in ancient times, is driven by vulnerability. It thrives where people cannot fulfill their basic needs and lack economic opportunity, education, and health care and live under corrupt government rule. Slaves usually come from the poor, the desperate and the marginalized. People are forced to work without pay, under threat of violence and they’re to scared to walk away.
Lisa Kristine has documented the harsh realities of modern-day slavery through her photographs of slaves – such as miners in the Congo and brick layers in Nepal and in doing so sheds light on 27 million people enslaved worldwide. In the following TED Talk Lisa shares some of her those photos and the plight of people who are suffering immensely just to survive. Watch the TED talk here and please pass the message on .
