When did slavery completely end?

I dont believe it truly has ended. Slavery is alive and well in the 21st century -- globally, the illegal trade in humans is surpassed only by that in drugs and arms. Deep in the Brazilian Amazon, thousands of impoverished men are trapped in a system of debt bondage, lured away from small villages in the interior and squalid city slums to work on huge ranches with promises of a decent wage. But on arrival
they are presented with a bill for their transportation, and so begins a vicious cycle of deceit
and brutality.
