The Price of Freedom

From the Anti-Slavery Portal :
336 Black Sudanese slaves were liberated between 23 March and 14 April through the mediation of the Arab-Dinka Peace Committees at Warawar and Manger Ater, Southern Sudan.
And from a post on the iAbolish anti-Slavery mailing list :
Human rights activists estimate that tens of thousands of black Sudanese are enslaved throughout Sudan. The approximate cost for a slave in Sudan is $35.
