VATICAN - An agreement against modern slavery, signed by the great religions [AN]


Among the signatories Pope Francis and Al Azhar . An invitation to other faiths and governments to join and support the Global Freedom Network. "Modern slavery and human trafficking are crimes against humanity. The physical, economic and sexual exploitation of men, women and children condemns 30 million people to dehumanization and degradation”.



This is very good news to hear and I’m heartened to read that government and other faiths will support this worthy cause.
