Amara Kanu campaigning to End Slavery in Libya - BellaNaija

Amara Kanu has consistently been campaigning against the kidnapping and slavery of immigrants in Libya.

Amara Kanu, on her Instagram, shared a link to petition that has since gathered over 37,000 signatures, videos of talk-shows she has guested on to raise awareness for the issue, and photos from a protest doing the same.

Asking that people sign the petition, she wrote:

Please HELP ME SIGN this petition. Click the link in my Bio to take you to the page for change. .
To be honest, seeing all the graphic images and content on the appalling slave trade and Human trafficking going on in Libya turned my insides sour. .
I signed one of these last week in French. I now want to see Our Nigerian and other west African anglophone brothers and sisters free from this appalling situation. Kindly share, repost, re tweet etc. I’m currently working with my husband @kingkanu4 and @georginaonuoha and my team to try and speak to some decision makers and get some positive action taken. .
Your support and signatures will help greatly. Tag all the influencers you know.
Thank you.

The petition will be submitted to both the United Nations and the former US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, along with the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and the Libyan Government.

Update: We have now reached 27,000 signatures on the Libya Slavery petition in the last two days. 💪🏼 Like @davidoofficial just said, slavery is not just happening in Libya, it's happening around the world. Let's keep pushing for positive change. If you have a voice use it. if you have fingers and an internet connection on your phone, use it to click the link in my bio and sign and share. Urge others to sign too. The decision makers and changers are not deaf. They're watching and cannot still so still for much longer if we use our individual voices and come together in number for one common positive cause. .

Update: It's been a week since I started the petition against slavery, illegal pushers for European Migration and economic corruption in Libya/Africa. So far we have just over 37,000 signatures signed up. Thank you all. We do need more voices and signatures on board. Please if you haven't done so, please sign and share. The link is in my bio. It will take you 60 seconds. The more signatures, the more conscious we all are about actions to a positive solution. . If you are in London this Saturday 09 Dec 17, please come out if you can to the peaceful protest. Meeting point is Belgrave Square at 12noon. Marching to the UK Libyan embassy. . . .

    How I wish Nigerians were as vocal about the root cause of this migration as they’ve been about this migrant slavery issue, which is allegedly being co-operated by other Nigerians. Nigerians love to pay attention to their plight only when it becomes international news, and is all over Facebook and Instagram, it makes you wonder if they really care, or just want to trend.. Reminds me of Bring Back Our Girls. We’re well past the awareness phase this point. 83 heads of state from the Africa and the EU have already met to discuss this issue, and have come up with a plan. Tackling the slavery aspect is not the solution to the problem, though immediate attention is required. Let’s learn to act locally, even if we want to think globally. It’s way more effective.

      Aside from negative critique what are u doing to stop the slavery or make society better. It’s a common phenomenon that Africans just like to tear others down. She has held talk shows to create greater awareness, very likely spends her time doing research and finding ways to make things better but instead of contributing physical or by idea u resort to stupid name calling and aspersions.
      If Buhari does not listen, other Nigerians or Africans wld be more aware of the dangers of illegal migration and what awaits. It saves a life instead of silence.
      Everyone knows root causes are unemployment, corruption and poverty but these excuses have been used generally. Many of these migrants are ignorant on what awaits them either in Libya or Europe and are willing to spend good money which could be used to start profitable business for signing their death warrant.

      Let’s learn to be supportive instead of always insulting and speculating others motives. If u don’t agree with others approach just do ur part.
