Profile: Anti-slavery activist Biram Dah Abeid

Biram Dah Abeid is an award-winning anti-slavery activist, the descendant of former slaves, and the founder of the Initiative for the Resurgence of the Abolitionist Movement in Mauritania. In 2014, he was jailed for "illegal assembly and rebellion", "encouraging rebellion" and "refusal to carry out orders given by the administrative authorities,” and finally released from prison in May 2016. His release has been followed by a crackdown on other anti-slavery activists.
