Hundreds of African community members in Berlin rallied outside the Libyan Embassy on Saturday to protest against slavery in Libya.
The demonstrators demanded an end to enslavement, torture, rape and murder of black people in the north African country.
An Ethiopian demonstrator, Gizaw, said, “to stop this situation German [sic] has to intervene, EU has to intervene, England, Britain has to intervene and stop financing these criminals in Libya.”
The protest was prompted by last week’s footage of sub-Saharan Africans being sold at slave auctions for as little as $400 (€335). People smugglers are targeting migrants en route to Europe.
