Oui, l'esclavagisme existe encore aujourd'hui, même en occident...

On penserait que l'esclavagisme a disparu il y a longtemps, mais pourtant, le trafic d'humains se poursuit encore et dans des proportions encore plus grande que dans le passé. On penserait aussi que c'est une affaire de pays du tiers monde ou de régime totalitaire, mais encore une fois, on se trompe parce que ce sont les pays occidentaux et des compagnies privés de ces derniers qui en sont les grands responsables. Je vous laisse avec ces quelques derniers documents ci-dessous pour appuyer mes propos.

Sex slavery taints Wilberforce anniversary

The Sunday Times

THE government’s failure to rein in human trafficking — described by the United Nations as the modern equivalent of slavery — is threatening to mar official plans to celebrate the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade.

As Labour plans £20m worth of events to mark the anniversary in March, the Home Office is preparing to release research in February that puts the number of trafficked prostitutes in Britain at 4,000.

The government had hoped the celebrations would be uncontroversial and would help divert attention from a more politically divisive milestone — the 300th anniversary of the union of England and Scotland. Now, however, ministers are being accused of hypocrisy for celebrating the campaign led by William Wilberforce, a Tory MP, 200 years ago, while failing to acknowledge their shortcomings in tackling trafficking.

Sex Slavery - The Growing Trade in Israel

Trafficking in women a worldwide epidemic, Malarek says,
Up to - 10,000 trafficked women in Israel and more than 280 brothels in Tel Aviv alone -

- By Julie Lesser - Tribune Correspondent

MONTREAL - Calling human trafficking one of the greatest human rights abuses of our time, Canadian journalist and social activist Victor Malarek addressed the Jewish community at a Montreal synagogue last Thursday.

Promoting a book he has written on the subject, Malarek said destitute Third World and Eastern European females as young as 12 are tricked into leaving their homelands with promises of wealth and prosperity in the West, as well as Israel. Instead, they are sold into the sex trade by organized crime, gangs, pimps and brothel owners.

"Newspaper ads from modelling and employment agencies promise exciting jobs, but the women are duped," Malarek told the Jewish Tribune. "They must submit, or they are raped, beaten and tortured. There are between 5,000 and 10,000 trafficked women in Israel and more than 280 brothels in Tel Aviv alone. It is a human rights issue the Jewish community knows about. They have a voice and they must use it."
