STOP THE TRAFFIK

Written by Chris Routledge, 3rd April 2009

STOP THE TRAFFIK is a global activist movement campaigning to end the forcing of innocent people into slavery, sweat shops, sexual exploitation, or any other form of abuse.

Steve Chalke, Chair of STOP THE TRAFFIK and UN. GIFT Special Advisor on Community Action Against Human Traffiking, has composed STOP THE TRAFFIK: People Shouldn't be Bought & Sold, a book which outlines the very real forms of exploitation that are alive in the world today. He argues that traffiking is not only a global issue but also a problem within local communities, and should be dealt with as such. Included are the personal accounts of those who have been tricked or forced into some type of illegal activity, and factual and background information on trafficking is provided to explain exactly what trafficking is, and what can be done to stop it. The book also includes a chapter written by Cherie Blair, human rights lawyer and campaigner for women's rights.

STOP THE TRAFFIK: People Shouldn't Be Bought & Sold is available now.
