Another article on trafficking of White slaves from Eastern Europe. Remember by Orion (Our race is Our Nation) that all these White women who are being enslaved by these nonwhite, especially by the Zionist, it is not just the duty of their own nation to rescue them and see that justice is done but all White nations duty to protect these women!
In memory of the Irish victims of Slavery
President Jacques Chirac announced, last January, that France will hold a national day of remembrance for the victims of slavery every 10 May,.
The date for the annual holiday was chosen as it marks the day in 2001 when France passed a law recognising slavery as a crime against humanity. He said children should be taught about slavery at primary and secondary school as part of the national curriculum. "Slavery fed racism," he said. "When people tried to justify the unjustifiable, that was when the first racist theories were elaborated."
Given that tens of thousands of Irish people were shipped into slavery, isnt it strange that Ireland has no day remembering them? I dont know of a single monument to the victims of slavery in Ireland. Perhaps someone can let me know if they know of one. As far as I know, even the Republican Movement fails to commemorate the tens of thousands of innocents sold into slavery from Ireland. Many of the women and children into sex slavery.
The following extract gives an idea of the colossal scale of the slave trade from Ireland. No doubt this post will be met by the usual chorus of deniers wishing we could keep quite about this - but lets just ignore them. I think some remembrance should be made of these unfortunate people. The event could be linked with the fight against slavery in the world today. Does anyone have suggestions?
The reign of Elizabeth I, English privateers captured 300 African Negroes, sold them as slaves, and initiated the English slave trade. Slavery was, of course, an old established commerce dating back into earliest history. Julius Caesar brought over a million slaves from defeated armies back to Rome. By the 16th century, the Arabs were the most active, generally capturing native peoples, not just Africans, marching them to a seaport and selling them to ship owners. Dutch, Portuguese and Spanish ships were originally the most active, supplying slaves to the Spanish colonies in America. It was not a big business in the beginning, but a very profitable one, and ship owners were primarily interested only in profits. The morality of selling human beings was never a factor to them.
After the Battle of Kinsale at the beginning of the 17th century, the English were faced with a problem of some 30,000 military prisoners, which they solved by creating an official policy of banishment. Other Irish leaders had voluntarily exiled to the continent, in fact, the Battle of Kinsale marked the beginning of the so-called “Wild Geese”, those Irish banished from their homeland. Banishment, however, did not solve the problem entirely, so James II encouraged selling the Irish as slaves to planters and settlers in the New World colonies. The first Irish slaves were sold to a settlement on the Amazon River In South America in 1612. It would probably be more accurate to say that the first “recorded” sale of Irish slaves was in 1612, because the English, who were noted for their meticulous record keeping, simply did not keep track of things Irish, whether it be goods or people, unless such was being shipped to England. The disappearance of a few hundred or a few thousand Irish was not a cause for alarm, but rather for rejoicing. Who cared what their names were anyway, they were gone........................

15 or 20 years after Michael Hoffman blazed this trial with The Were White And They Were Slaves, the establishment takes up the topic. NYU Press? Can't get more establishment than that!
Kidnapped!</span> is a famous book on this whole epoch that was made into a major movie. This article points out that Captain Blood</span> is another.
Apparently they called it "transportation" back then, as Systemites make reference to "extraordinary rendition" and such claptrap today.
This book only hints at a theme expounded by Hoffman, that white slaves a lower class than blacks even to the blacks who were all but encouraged to belittle them.

Whites were slaves before blacks were.
Don Jordan and Michael Walsh, White Cargo: The Forgotten History of Britain’s White Slaves in America, New York University Press, 2007, 320 pp., $18.95 (soft cover)
reviewed by Thomas Jackson
slavery is said to be our country’s original sin, and whites will
probably be reminded of this for it as long as any are left in America.
We hear from time to time about white indentured servants, but are
warned not to think of them as suffering from anything like slavery,
which was a unique form of degradation reserved for blacks.
British journalists Don Jordan and Michael Walsh argue convincingly in White Cargo
that “indentured servant” is much too mild a term for a condition that
was often no different from that of a slave. White “servants” were
property: bought and sold, included in wills, whipped when
recalcitrant, raped at will, and in many cases worked to death. Mr.
Jordan and Mr. Walsh call this “forgotten history,” and even suggest
why it is forgotten: “It invites uproar to describe as slaves any of
these hapless whites” because it is “thought to detract from the
enormity of black suffering.” White Cargo is well-researched,
engagingly written, and brilliantly illuminates a corner of American
history neither whites nor blacks care to explore.
Peopling a continent
Indenture was a system under which a man or woman could gain passage to
the colonies in exchange for a set period as a servant. The most common
period was seven years, but it could be as long as eleven or as short
as three. The world “indenture” comes from the Latin indentere,
which means to cut with the teeth. The labor contract was written on
parchment and then torn jaggedly down the middle, with master and
servant each to keep half. Mr. Jordan and Mr. Walsh estimate that
hundreds of thousands of Britons went to America and the Caribbean
under some form of indenture.
People who engaged
themselves voluntarily were called “free-willers,” but a great many
were coerced. Convicts, rebels, beggars, prostitutes, and unwanted
Scots or Irishmen could be rounded up and banished to hard labor in the
colonies for as long as 14 years, while an unknown number of young
people were simply kidnapped and sold. It was a labor system that arose
because tobacco planters in America and cane growers in the Caribbean
so badly needed cheap workers. Tobacco could be highly profitable but
required so much labor that a century after white bondsmen first began
to toil over it, Thomas Jefferson was still calling it “a culture
productive of infinite wretchedness............</span>
The authors of White Cargo think that the black monopoly on victimization has pushed white servants into undeserved obscurity. About the first boatload of press-ganged child beggars sold in Jamestown they write: “While the fate of those youngsters rounded up from the streets of London has been largely forgotten, history would take a keen interest in the destiny of a group of men and women who arrived a few months after the first shipment of children in 1619.”
These are, of course, the “20 negars” famously observed by planter John Rolfe, who are said to be British America’s first black slaves. The authors point out, however, that these 20 were treated just like white servants, put to seven year terms, after which they received “freedom dues.” Nor did this group mark the beginning of a rush of blacks to Virginia. By mid-century, of the 11,000 settlers in the colony only 300 were black. Their treatment was essentially no different from that of white bondsmen.
Blacks gradually did sink to a status lower than whites, and a man who was almost certainly one of the 20 original “negars” helped push them in that direction. A full-blooded African from Angola, he took the English name of Anthony Johnson. After his term of service he prospered mightily, accumulating more than 1,000 acres and a score of servants both black and white. He found fault with one of his blacks, John Casor, and in 1650, after a lengthy lawsuit, persuaded a court to make the man a servant for life. Casor, then, was one of the first blacks condemned to slavery as we know it. It was only in 1671 that Virginia made all blacks coming into the country slaves for life......</span>
