Default 21st century Anti-Slavery Campaigns

1. No relevant pre-existing thread found.

2. One case of historical precedence that this is relevant to the Collective's interest.

3. Anyone currently involved in this fight care to chime in?

There are over 20 million people sold every year to the highest bidder. Two million or more are children sold into sex slavery.

A group of highly skilled and dedicated veterans, former police officers, and homeland security agents have joined the fight against child human trafficking. They work with local authorities all over the world to rescue children caught in this vicious cycle.

The group, dubbed The Abolitionists, have been taking the fight to human traffickers for the last two years in Columbia, Honduras, Mexico, India, Hati and the USA. With one child being sold into sex slavery every 30 seconds, we need them more than ever.

Since 2013, this team of former U.S. soldiers, Navy SEALs, and government agents has been filming its on-the-ground efforts to end sex trafficking.

Several years ago, Tim Ballard, who had served as a U.S. government agent for a dozen years, went rogue — but in a good way. While working as a special agent for the Department of Homeland Security, Ballard, a devout Mormon, infiltrated child-trafficking rings by posing as a pedophile. But he grew frustrated by the red tape. So, in 2013, Ballard left the department and started Operation Underground Railroad, or OUR, a private organization that conducts so-called “extraction operations” to free child sex slaves and bring their captors to justice.

Some 40.3 million people around the world are trapped in conditions of slavery, according to a report released on Tuesday and presented to the UN General Assembly. Campaigners say the report gives the best-ever account of modern slavery and is a stepping stone to helping governments stop it.
Of the 40.3 million people around the world trapped in conditions of modern slavery, an estimated 24.9 million are forced into working in the sex trade, on industrial or agricultural sites or as domestic workers, according to the report, Global estimates of modern slavery: Forced labour and forced marriage.
Another 15.4 million people are married against their will, it says

The report found practices of modern slavery are most prevalent in Africa, followed by Asia and the Pacific regions, as well as in Europe.

PARIS, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Forty people were arrested and 500 people rescued after a swoop on human trafficking across West Africa, international police organisation Interpol said on Thursday.
The Interpol-led action comes amid a global outcry sparked by footage of Africans being solved as slaves in Libya, often the final transit for migrants wanting to reach Europe.
In a statement, Interpol said that some 500 people, including 236 minors, had been rescued in simultaneous operations across Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal. Forty suspected traffickers were arrested.

Stand-up move by the Rwandan Government.

Quote:
the East African country of Rwanda has offered refuge to around 30,000 African migrants who are living in slave-like conditions in Libya.
The Rwandan foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that it was “horrified by the images of the tragedy unfolding in Libya, where African men, women and children who were on the road to exile, have been held and turned into slaves.
“Given Rwanda’s political philosophy and our own history, we cannot remain silent when human beings are being mistreated and auctioned off like cattle.”
Rwanda’s Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo told Rwandan newspaper The New Times that the country may be able to accommodate up to 30,000 refugees.
