Labour leader receives ‘Slaves On Our Streets’ report
On Friday 2 February Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn met with survivors of human trafficking and those who work to support them and combat modern slavery at St Joan of Arc parish in Highbury, North London.
The report covers the roles that business, the community, statutory authorities and the media have to play if we are to end this serious and organised crime.
Cardinal Nichols in his opening statement of the report says
“It is essential that we see the human face of every victim of trafficking. Each one is a daughter or a son, a mother or a father. Each slave is a person with a story. It is our duty to remind ourselves constantly of this truth and not succumb to indifference.”
‘Slaves on our Streets’ will also be presented to Pope Francis next week at the Santa Marta Group Conference in the Vatican.
