Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World double issue for Michaelmas and Advent 2004. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries on the subject of displaced peoples and migrant workers "moving families". "Much of the abuse of migrant workers goes on behind closed doors and is unknown. In England, the deaths of the cockle pickers made some of it visible. The pictures and reports from areas such as the Sudan also make visible the terrible suffering caused to families displaced by war. We hope that this newsletter adds to the knowledge and understanding of the plight of families forced to move -- including those whose way of life is travelling."
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinity 2007. 2007 marks 200 years since Britain abolished the Slave Trade. "The bicentenary provides an important opportunity not only to draw attention to the realities of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its legacies, but also to focus attention on the fact that slavery is still a reality for millions of people worldwide. Today at least 12 million men, women and children are in slavery. They are forced to work through the threat or use of violence. They are denied freedom, dehumanised and treated as property or bought and sold. Slavery today takes many different forms. .... One of the most extensive forms of slavery today is bonded labour, which alone affects millions of people across South Asia" (pp. -28).
Issue concludes with A Prayer for the enslaved and for their families" written by John Bradford which begins "God of freedom and concern for the oppressed / Hear our prayer for all tricked or taken from their families and heartlessly enslaved ...".
