EU: Mauritania must abolish slavery 'not only in law but in practice'

Editor's note: Mauritania was the last country in the world to abolish slavery. This story is part of a CNN special report, “Slavery’s Last Stronghold.”

The European Union issued the following statement to CNN concerning slavery in Mauritania:

Slavery unfortunately still goes on in Mauritania. Despite a gradual change of mentality and a public willingness by the government to tackle the problem, this practice, which was made officially illegal [several times], still exists and is relatively widespread in the country. We make the fight against slavery a top priority in our dialogue with the Mauritanian authorities. We also support civil society organizations which are key in the fight against slavery. The EU is providing financial support to several projects to support human rights organizations in their fight against slavery. We also support legal and administrative measures taken to combat this scourge. Such practices are clearly out of place in any democratic society and must be immediately abolished not only in law but in practice. Complementary socio-economic measures are also part of the solution.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the amgsese home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I'll certainly be back.

    You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really one thing which I believe I would never understand. It seems too complex and very huge for me. I'm looking forward on your subsequent put up, I��ll try to get the hang of it!

    I don't truly care how or when i get the Letters in the Mail. Every time it arrives, it feels like a letter should be. It's suddenly there in my mail box one particular day. A pleasant, tangible surprise. I'm for you doing whatever you want when you send it. Mix it up for that men and women who help get it sent out. Include crumbs from your lunch. Coffee stains. Whatever. Keep the tedious character of getting letters out to a minimum by doing whatever you feel like that day. The arrival of the letter and the words in the author inside are what matters. Personally, what I like most effective about The Rumpus is that I by no means understand what I'll read that day. Or if there isn't really one which day, maybe it's because Stephen couldn't uncover anything to say or there was much too much likely on.

    "United are also expected to spend big to bring in a new striker, with Ibrahimovic having been forced to shoulder much of the goalscoring burden this season netting 21 times."

    I have noticed that in video cameras, unique devices help to target automatically. The particular sensors regarding some digital cameras change in in the area of contrast, while others work with a beam involving infra-red (IR) light, specifically in low light. Higher spec cameras often use a mix of both programs and probably have Face Priority AF where the video camera can 'See' the face while focusing only in that. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this web site.
