    it is kid of hard to distinguish here between poverty and slavery because i believe if there investments in this countries and people can easily find job their masters will be less relevant if they can fend for themselves, yes slavery is here and exist but i also think CNN failed to acknowledge the obvious in this case POVERTY

      Yes, there is poverty here, but most of it is slavery. I do believe that in the article they address poverty here, but the main reason this is here is to draw attention to something horrible. It is obvious in the way they think, act, talk and what they were told. They were told that their duty as dark skins is to serve light-skinned people. They were abused, raped, and put into unhealthy living conditions. The lady, Moulkheir, has told her story. She was afraid of what her master would do. He even took her child and left it outside – her baby! An infant! This is not only about poverty, it is about the obliviousness of some people and the negligence of others. It is about the helpless feelings these people have. The government officials knew about what was happening, brushed it off, and made it illegal for you to utter the word 'slave'. There is nothing simple about it, and I feel that CNN did a great job on informing people of this situation, no matter if and what they leave out.

    It's not true that Mauritania is the last stronghold of slavery. Ethiopia also believes and practices slavery.

    You all are slaves. Also those who running this 'Project freedom'. You cannot cross the boundaries of universe. You never can get freedom even after your death.

    This is all nonsence. Having been in and around all of Africa over the last 15 years, there are other countries that are breaking more rules on slavery than Mauritania. So why all the negative press on this place? Do your reserch better pls? Be fair and not one sided.

      Do you expect us to trust ( beyond a grain of salt) and AUSTRALIAN living in Mauritania's ability to identify slavery?
      I'm sure the aborigine's in your land would also tell the world to do their research and tell the truth about what goes on THERE!

    1. Poverty has nothing to do with this. Slavery has been officially abolished by presidential decree since 1980. But is it still rampant and no one disputes that. Black Maurs or Khartanis are inherently considered as slaves, and by extension, all black people are regarded as under class citizends
    2. For teh Australian living in Mauritania, this is not about who breakes more rules on slavery. Slavery is an inhuman condition that is collectively imposed on a group of people, so there is no more or les rules. Yes some other countries are practicing slavery, Ethiopia and SUdan for exemple, but they are all as guilty as Mauritania of this cardinal sin

      I know this is late, but thank you. We do happen to know that other places practice slavery illegally, but the topic here is Mauritania and it's major problem. How many of you knew about this off the bat?
