UN : Investigate slavery in Russian prisons

Recently, it has come to light that Russia is not a great place for freedom at the moment. Publicly being gay has been made illegal, there are billionaires making more and more money while there is extreme poverty on the streets – and recently several protestors have made the news, having been arrested for speaking out.

It now comes to light that these prisoners are being forced to live in slave-like conditions, made to work 17 hours a day in appalling conditions. Please read the article on The Petition Site, and sign the petition asking the United Nations to investigate these claims.
