With more and more days of the year being claimed as unofficial holidays like ‘National Pizza Day’, our newsfeed fills up fast. So it is important to recognise the big ones with days like tomorrow, Anti Slavery Day, and the importance they have in actually making an impact for issues that we are facing globally. This national day is based on the Anti Slavery Day Act 2010 passed by the parliament of the UK in an effort to ‘raise awareness amongst young people and others of the dangers and consequences of slavery, human trafficking and exploitation and encourage them to be proactive in the fight against it. “ to eventually eradicate the issue. With that said, lets have a look at some statistics to show you just how much of an issue slavery is in the world today.......
