Human Trafficking

Reflection:  Human Trafficking is a crime against humanity. It involves an act of recruiting, transporting, transfering, harbouring or receiving a person through a use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them. Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims.  (Trafficking in Persons Protocol)

Although the statistics are controversial because human trafficking is such a hidden crime, the U.N. estimates that trafficking represents a $32 billion annual global trade that forces 12.3 million adults and children into slave labor or prostitution.
