Libya's UN-backed government is investigating reports of African migrants being sold as slaves after a CNN broadcast revealed the auction of men to Libyan buyers.
Stephen Grootes weighed in on the matter and asks how this was allowed to happen.
How did this happen? How did something that was so bad the entire world banned it, come back?— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor
There is a long list of reasons, it's the consequences of what happened in Libya, Muammar Gaddafi and the way he ruled before that intervention. And it's also about what happens when the world turns its back on certain people.— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor
If you are stuck in a country that is falling apart you will try to get out, and then when you find yourself stuck in Libya you end up being caught by these men with machine guns and chains. This is what happens when you put up walls and you let states fail. This is what happens when we forget out our humanity.— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor
