Sign a petition to put pressure on the government to take action against modern day slavery.
Dear [insert MPs name],
I hope you are well.
My name is ____ and I live ___ and I’m writing about the recent coverage of the Libya slave trade.
Like many, I was shocked and upset to see the plight of many human beings that are being sold into a slave trade in 2017. I attended the recent demonstration march outside of the Libyan Embassy and was struck by how many people, just like me were disgusted by the treatment of human beings in Libya and wanted to do something.
I have since found out that there is a debate in parliament on the 18th December at 4.30pm and was hoping that you would be attending to stand up and condemn what is currently happening. I would also like to find out, in light of what is going on, what the British government will be doing to pressure the Libyan government to take action.
It is not lost on me, that as shocking as this new revelation is, modern slavery still very much exists all over the world and I would really like see this debate shine a light on this and more importantly what we as a nation are doing to safeguard the vulnerable and punish the employers that are profiting from this practice.
It would be great to have a further conversation about what your party are doing in particular to address modern slavery in the U.K.
I look forward to your response.
