Check out story at truthdig written by Terrence McNally (originally published at AlterNet)

"One hundred forty-three years after passage of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and 60 years after Article 4 of the U.N.‘s Universal Declaration of Human Rights banned slavery and the slave trade worldwide, there are more slaves than at any time in human history—27 million."
