Dangers, toils and snares

In 1789 William Wilberforce started advocating the abolition of slavery. Results were long in coming, but he persevered until in 1807 the Act of the Abolition of the Slave Trade was passed. This, for the British, brought an end to trading in slaves, but slavery as such was only outlawed in 1833 - just about at the time of Wilberforce's death. Yet slavery continued. Today, classical slavery still exists in such places as northern Nigeria, Sudan and Mauritania, and there is a modern form as well: the crime of trafficking in persons - Michael Fitzgerald
