Anti-Slavery Day today

18 to 29 OCTOBER 2010

"This exhibition at City Hall features photos of victims of modern day slavery around the world and marks the UK’s first annual Anti-Slavery Day on 18 October.

The collection of portraits by South East London photographer Pete Pattisson is being hosted by the London Assembly to highlight the individual consequences of slavery, human trafficking and exploitation that millions of men, women and children continue to suffer.

The exhibition will run for two weeks in the Chamber, 2nd floor at City Hall."

A worthwhile campaign, and exhibition.

But the name got me thinking - it rang a bell. If I'm not mistaken I think this may be the same Pete Pattison who contested the Lewisham East seat for the Lib Dems - and lost to the Labour candidate Heidi Alexander. Good luck to him in this work.
