So you think you will dance? Sometimes things are not what they seem. Men, women and children are trafficked – tricked, forced and exploited in the sex industry.
Victims of human trafficking – men, women and children – come from diverse backgrounds. Such victims are trafficked for sexual exploitation, forced labour, domestic servitude, cannabis cultivation, benefit fraud, forced begging and pickpocketing, organ harvesting, forced marriage, and much more.
The most recent estimates from The International Labour Office (ILO) state that 9.1 million men, women and children are trafficked across borders and within their own country. 55% are women, 45% are men. 74% are adults, 26% are children. 22% are sexually exploited, 68% in forced labour, 10% in ‘state exploitation’ e.g. prison/child soldiers.
The act of human trafficking constitutes the denial of fundamental human rights. Victims usually suffer repeated physical abuse, fear, torture and threats to the safety of their families. All this serves to further break their spirits and turn them into saleable commodities.
