The Business of Sex Trafficking

Sex trafficking is a criminal business in which women and children are forced or coerced into providing sex services. An estimated 2.5 million people are victims of this modern-day form of slavery which has grown into an ugly and sophisticated $50 billion world wide business. Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world, despite the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, which went into effect on December 25, 2003.

    um, most sex slaves are from Moldova and Ukraine not Moldova and Russia. Unless like most ignorant westerners they don’t consider Russia and Ukraine different countries.

    Great to see someone with enough ‘oomph'(for want of better phrases) to raise this issue..I am sharing this everywhere.

  • Good article on child trafficking. We need more social awareness to stop these crimes against people.

  • How do I get copies? Everyone needs to read this report.

  • Educational article. This need to be spreed. People need to know this stuff is going on around them.

  • The post is really very interesting.
