Human Trafficking

Slavery did not end with abolition in the 19th century.

WHAT IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING?

Men, women and children who are trafficked are victims of a terrible crime. They become slaves. They must perform whatever duties are demanded of them or face punishment. They are subjected to physical and emotional abuse, and even torture. They are beaten and/or threatened with violence, and threats towards their family might also be made. They are kept in conditions that are poor and often squalid. If they have come from another country, their passport and identification documents are taken from them. They are often denied education, medical treatment, basic social interaction and other access to the outside world.
