Why Is There Slavery When We Have Human Rights?

BLOG ACTION DAY
HUMAN RIGHTS
CHALLENGE 5

So today we are looking at our human rights and children rights. According to article 4 on human rights its says "No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms." I remember reading an article about modern day slavery. It said that over 21-30 people are being enslaved today. More than 5 million in Asia + Pacific, Over 500,00 in Africa and South America , and Less than 500,000 in Europe and North America. But there is a HUMAN RIGHT against slavery. Isn't it ridiculous how in America there is still slavery when we even had a civil war against slavery!  There are a lot of organizations that are helping to stop slavery including, http://www.freetheslaves.net/page.aspx?pid=348, and their goal is to stop slavery in our lifetime.
