How is Black History linked to us? </li><li> 19. Did the oppression end there? Patience is a domestic worker from west Africa, whose former boss was a London solicitor. She says that for almost three years she worked 120 hours a week for little money. "I was treated like a slave, not allowed to go out, to make friends she'd pinch me, slap me. I didn't have anyone to talk to." A neighbour helped Patience escape, but then, she says, the police did not believe her. </li><li> 20. Patiences story is not a one off. In the UK and across the globe slave traders continue to operate. 24 MILLION men, women and children are trafficked across borders and within their own country every year. More than one person is trafficked across borders EVERY MINUTE, which is equivalent to five jets full every day. a trade that earns twice as much worldwide revenue as Coca Cola. </li><li> 21. What could we do to stop the slave trade? Design a logo and a slogan which you think will help raise awareness of slavery in the world today. </li></ol>
