This year sees the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade. What is often forgotten is that, whilst much of this was down to William Wilberforce himself, some of the credit must also go to those who he worked with and who were known by the umbrella name of the Clapham Sect.
It's also worth noting that, aside from the great move towards an evil injustice and that therefore it is right and proper to remember Wilberforce for that. It is also right and proper to remember him this year because of the injustices of slavery that still go on in the World, whether it is physical or economic, or both! And those injustices are ones which, as then, we like to sweep under the carpet or put as somewhere from another time.
