In on the world, firstly i though that

        In this report, i will talk about the
Human Rights. To be specifically this is about the Right number 4 – No slavery
in the past or present. I will explore how is it violated aroung the world in
Canada and how the non -governmental arganizations or individuals are working
to protect it. Firstly, this Right mentioned that ” Noone shall be held in
slavery or servitude, slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all
there forms”, i think this is a very important right on the world because everyone
should be treated equally and everyone is all humans noone have to serve or
become a slave for anyone, everyone is all humans.

    
This Right is always be protect by the law and the government on the
world, firstly i though that there are no more slavery on this modern community
and we are all treated equally, but now i regconize that this rights is not
always be observed. Although the slave trade was abolished centuries ago,
modern day slavery persists with many workers, often migrants, forced into performing
compulsory work for little or no wages in conditions where they are effectively
prevented from escaping. The prohibition on holding a person
in slavery or servitude is absolute and can never be justified. The abused of
this right is that everyone is not being seem as the same with each other, they
became a slave in some case and they have to be served the people who have
money, who buy them. Although, they have been serving there host without wages
or ant payments, they still have to live in a bad conditions and they are being
sold like a kindof goods or animals or cattles.

Modern incidence of slavery, as a percentage of
the population, by country, estimates from the Walk Free Foundation

(Picture from Wikidepia)

In northern Uganda, the LRA (Lord’s
Resistance Army) guerrillas have kidnapped 20,000 children over the past twenty
years and forced them into service as soldiers or sexual slaves for the army,
in Asia, Japan is the major destination country for trafficked women,
especially women from ThaiLand and Philippines, UNICEF estimates that there are
approximetely 60,000 child prostitutes in Philippines. There are 600,000 to
820,000 men, women and children are trafficked across international borders
each year, half of whom are minors, including record numbers of women and girls
fleeing from Iraq because of war and  in
nearly all countries, including Canada, the US and UK, deportation or
harassment are the usual governmental responses, with no assistance services
for the victims, in Libya, there are a lot of people try to get away from the
war and they used the seaways to get to the Europe countries that caused a lot
of bad affects to them but the worst is they would be kidnapped and become a
slavery by the pirates and absolutely will become a slavery in some ways. There
are a lot of cases have been announced that have been died on the ways to
Europe and have been kidnapped for some several reasons but i think in that
bunch of reasons, all of that will reach to the destination that they would
become a slaves. The people who wanted to be violated this right would be the
people who wanted to make money from the slavery and buying the slavery or
using it, in this case i am mentioning about the terriosts, they sold the
people in there own country they kidnapped people without reasons, they rised
and against the government to have their own control and they need money for
that so notthing they can do besides kidnapped people and turn people to a slaver.
And in some ways this actions can also a reasons to starting a war from a
government with terriosts like in Iraq or Libya,…

   
Slavery in the world is become a big problem, what about in Canada ?
Because early Canada’s role in the trans – Atlantic slave trade was so small,
the history of slavery in Canada is often overshadowed by the more tumultuous
slavery practised elsewhere in the Americas, particularly in the American South
and colonial Caribbean. But as we know Canada is one of the top of the safest
country on the world and people here treat each other with the respect, but
nowadays in Canada the slavery is still occur in some form such as human
trafficking. Some of the slavery in Canada are from the African countries and
most of that were Aboriginal.

 

 

 

 

 

Slaveries from African countries and Aboriginal
slaveries 

( Picture from CBC.ca )

 

In the 19th,18th and 17th centuries
the slavery from African and Aboriginal increased everyday, day by day. The
Slave-owning in Canada, for example, the fishing societies, such as the Yurok,
that lived along the Pacific coast and many of the indigenous peoples of the
Pacific Northwest Coast, such as the Haida and Tlingit, were traditionally
known as fierce warriors and slave-traders. Among some Pacific Northwest tribes
about a quarter of the population were slaves, this slave narrative was
composed by an English man, John R. Jewitt, who had been taken alive when his
ship was captured in 1802,  his memoir
provides a detailed look at life as a slave, and asserts that a large number
were held. Besides that, a small were number of African people forcibly brought
as chattel slaves to New France, Acadia and the later British North America
during the 17th century. Slavery was hereditary, the slaves being prisoners of
war and their descendants were slaves so some tribes in British Columbia
continued to segregate and ostracize the descendants of slaves as late as the
1970s. Slavery did not end
until the ratifying of the Slavery
Convention in 1953, the objective of the
Convention was to confirm and advance the suppression of slavery and the slave
trade. Nowadays There are an estimated 45.8 million
people around the world currently trapped in modern slavery, including 6,500
people in Canada, it is seemed to be a small number if we compare its to the
whole world but it is means that the slavery is still exist in our country in
some particular ways, for example, sexual slavery is still one of the hard
problem to solve thoroughly.

Human trafficking in Canada has
become a significant legal and political issue, and Canadian legislators have
been criticized for having failed to deal with the problem in a more systematic
way. Afua Cooper states
that slavery is “Canada’s best kept secret, locked within the National
closet”. But there are another reason such as the people here in Canada
they have a good personality they don’t want to hurt anyone and they are
treating with respect and honor. Besides that the law here is strictfuly
abanded the slave-trade or any form of using slavery. The Government of Canada
established the National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking in order to
oppose human trafficking with every form to stop the slavery on this country.
To protect this rights in Canada, British Columbia’s Office to Combat
Trafficking in Persons formed in 2007 and The Human Trafficking Task force was
established in June 2012 to replace the Interdepartmental Working Group on
Trafficking in Persons as the body responsible for the development of public
policy related to human trafficking in Canada . Besides that, if we need to
stop this problem, not only British Columbia but all over the country have to
build one of the organizations to protect this right out of being abused and
violated.

     On the world, there are a lot of
organizations are working hard to protext this rights and protect the people
who were forcily to be a slaves included an Governmental Organizations and Non
Governmental Organization (NGOs),… The Government Organizations are very
popular and they are working hard with the support of the NGOs, NGOs is also a
important factor to solve the slavery problem and protect this right so i will
mentioned it on this report. NGOs is stand for Non Governmental Organizations,
it is established themselves, but must be run and operated by the competent
authorities within the framework of the law, subject to state management, fully
autonomous, self-sufficient, or supported by the state. All over the world
there are a lot of NGOs are working for the protection of this rights, one of
that is Hope For Justice – an organization in USA , they are developing a model
of investigation and rescue that complements the work of law enforcement and
other agencies and supports the prosecution of perpetrators or Shared Hope
International they are working to prevent the conditions that foster sexual
trafficking, restore victims of sexual slavery, and bring justice to vulnerable
women and children.

 

  

 

 

Not only a organizations are working
to against the slavery problem but also there are a lot of individual working
they are also play a very important roles on the battle of fighting against
slavery, one of that is John Graves Simcoe,  he is Lieutenant
Governor of the colony from 1791 until
1796,  had been a supporter of abolition
before coming to Upper Canada, as a British Member of
Parliament, he had described slavery as an offence
against Christianity.

At the inaugural meeting of the
Executive Council of Upper Canada in March   
     1793, Simcoe heard from a
witness the story of Chloe Cooley, a female slave who had been violently
removed from Canada and sold in the United States. Simcoe’s desire to abolish
slavery in Upper Canada was resisted by members of the Legislative Assembly who
owned slaves, and therefore the resulting act was a compromise. The compromise,
named An Act to Prevent the further Introduction of Slaves and to limit the
Term of Contracts for Servitude within Upper Canada, This compromise’s content
stated that while all slaves in the province would remain enslaved until death,
no new slaves could be brought into Upper Canada and children born to female
slaves after passage of the act would be freed at the age of 25.because at the
time Canada is a colony of Britain so this compromise made Upper Canada
became “the first British colony to abolish slavery” . The Act
remained in force until 1833 when the British Parliament’s Slavery Abolition
Act abolished slavery in most parts of the British Empire. In 1798, Christopher
Robinson -an American-born soldier, lawyer and
political figure in Upper Canada introduced
a bill in the Legislative Assembly to allow the importation of additional
slaves. The bill was passed by the Assembly, but was stalled by the Legislative
Council and died at the end of the session. 21 years later, in
1819,  Attorney General John
Robinson  – son of Christopher, declared
that by residing in Canada, black residents were set free, and that Canadian
courts would protect their freedom because of their volunteer services in the
War of 1812.

    
At the conclusion, Slavery is one of the biggest problem on the world
and every country and a lot of people 
are trying their best to solve it, every organizations and individuals
in the past and in the present they put themsleves to a dangerous situations
and trying to stop it. We are people, everyone is the same, treat everyone like
normal, noone have to serve anyone. Let’s stand up and prevent it and protect
people who are being trafickking and who are doing slavery jobs. Make them see
that people are humans and they are deserves to be treating equaly !
