Recently three women who were held as slaves for over 30 years were freed in the UK. The case highlights the problem of slavery in a shocking manner as they were held in a well to do neighborhood in London. One campaigner says the women were enslaved through "psychological shackles" and was indicative of a growing global industry.
One of the women is said to have been born into slavery and said of her 30 year experience that she felt "like a fly trapped in a spider's web". The captives were so terrified for their safety it took the charity that freed them weeks to gain their trust. Once they had built a strong relationship the women walked out and were swiftly moved to a safe location by police.
The case has led to a growth in awareness of the issue of slavery. British MP Frank Field says the case is the tip of the iceberg and made the connections of domestic worker abuse and slavery, often a factor in more commonly heard cases.
Right now there is a bill before the parliament the will require a maximum life sentence for those found guilty of slavery. We are demanding that the Cameron government make this a priority and put in place protections for those suffering at the hands of modern day slavers.
