Article “Haratin, the mask of modern slavery” story, by Luca Catalano Gonzaga, in the Italian monthly magazine “Africa”. “Haratin” means literally “those who have been freed”, these women and men still live in slavery, generation after generation, treated by everyone else as a ‘property’: something only worth buying, selling, trading or destroying. Haratins live in villages in the countryside, work a land which is not theirs and don’t receive a salary or any other form of compensation.
