Protesters gather near Libyan Embassy after CNN report on migrant auctions
By Dakin Andone, CNN
Updated 5:20 AM EST, Mon November 20, 2017 ￼ (CNN)Protesters gathered outside the Libyan Embassy in central Paris following an exclusive CNN investigation into migrant auctions in Libya. "We have to mobilize. We can't let this kind of thing happen," one protester told France 24 at the rally Saturday. "Did we really need to see such shocking pictures before taking a stand? I don't think so." After obtaining footage of an auction, CNN's Nima Elbagir and her crew went to Libya in October to investigate further. "How can it be that in the 21st century, we're selling human beings like merchandise?" one woman at the Paris protest said. "I cannot get my head around that!" Libyan authorities this week launched a formal investigation into the auctions, overseen by the government's Anti-Illegal Immigration Agency. "Priorities of the investigation are not only to convict those responsible for these inhumane acts, but also to identify the location of those who have been sold in order to bring them to safety and return them to their countries of origin," Anes Alazabi, an official with the agency, told CNN.
During its investigation, CNN witnessed a dozen men being sold at an auction outside of the Libyan capital of Tripoli. Some of them were auctioned off for as little as $400. Ultimately, CNN was told of auctions taking place at nine locations throughout Libya, but many more are believed to take place each month.
MORE SHOCKING PICTURES OF SLAVE TRADE, TORTURE, KILLINGS IN LIBYA SURFACE
UN, AU, and ECOWAS are urgently called upon to act and free these young Africans held in 'Slave Markets' in Libya.
Recently the footage of live auction in Libya where black youths are presented to North African buyers as potential farmlands and sold off for as little as $400, $500, $600 respectively is disturbing and worrisome.
For thousands of migrants from across sub-Saharan Africa, Libya is the last stopping point in Africa before making a perilous journey across the Mediterranean in the hope of reaching Europe. But crackdowns on people-smuggling by European and Libyan authorities have left many migrants at the mercy of traffickers in Libya. Evidence of African migrants being sold as slaves has sparked widespread condemnation in Africa and the West. Heads of state in several African nations, including Niger, have summoned the Libyan ambassadors in their countries to demand investigations into the practice. For these reasons and more, a peaceful protest will take place on Saturday, November 25, from 10:30 AM – 1:30 pm, in front of the Embassy of Libya, 2600 Virginia Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20037.

In addition, African governments must address the increase of risky migration practices across the Mediterranean by their citizens in order to put a stop to this completely.
