On Saturday, October 14 more than 100 walkers dressed in black with the slogan 'Abolish Slavery with Each Step' emblazoned in orange on their t-shirts and wearing bandanas over their mouths, marched single file through the city of Norwich united in a desire to abolish slavery in a world where millions are enslaved and have no voice as a result of the $150-billion human trafficking industry. 

The march, which started in Chapelfield Gardens at 10.30am, was coordinated by the Associate Pastor of Norwich church Proclaimers, Gemma Neill.
 
Dubbed the ‘Walk for Freedom’, Norwich walkers were taking part in one of hundreds of walks happening in 50 nations across the globe in support of The A21 Campaign, a global anti-human trafficking organisation.
 
Gemma Neill, Associate Pastor of Proclaimers church who coordinated the walk in Norwich said: "We are thrilled with the success of this years Walk For Freedom; the fourth to be hosted in Norwich.

"It was fantastic to hear the members of the public who we passed discussing human trafficking as they watched us pass with bandana over our mouths, and absorbing the breadth of this injustice as they read the statistics on the flyers we handed out. The walk was all about raising awareness and we feel it achieved exactly that."
 
"We would love to invite all your readers to join us for next years walk as together we make our voices heard on this topic and do our bit in fighting this atrocity"
