Searchbar came up empty, so here it is.

I was doing some research on China for one of my classes and got sidetracked. Somehow (I blame wikipedia) I ended up here:
http://www.humantrafficking.org/
It's some pretty disturbing shit.

Do you guys know of anything being done about this? I know they made the movie Eastern Promises to draw some attention to it, but it seems to me to be seriously downplayed. The report said the governments of most countries implicated as very guilty are pretty careless about what's going on.

I know Amnesty International had a campaign about it a while back but Amnesty has a disgusting habit of stopping their highlighting of an issue as soon as it leaves the mainstream media.

It is one of the most disgusting things going on in the world at the moment though and it gets far too little attention. Then again, the same can be said of every human rights issue out there.

Look into an organisation called "Stop the traffik", I played a benefit gig for them a year or two ago. It's REALLY disturbing that this kind of stuff is still going on today. I remember a story shortly after that gig of a lithuanian brothel that was discovered about 10 houses away from my best mate's house. Apparently some guys were trafficking women they had kidnapped from lithuana and taking them to this house as sex slaves for guys who came in.

Government corruption is partly to blame. Getting rid of that is important but the problem is poverty. Money is king where there is poverty and it rules everything. The gangsters making huge cash in human trafficking can easily pay off the authorities. Nothing can be done really.

Believe it or not I don't monitor this thread every waking second.
And what he posted was just as stupid and juvanile as what you posted. It really annoys me when people joke about serious issues like this.
And on similar note, what you said especially is personal to me. I have seen the results of suicide bombing first hand and it is no laughing matter.

Sorry man, I'll delete that, like I said, I dislike it when people are depressed. My motifs were innocent! But it all came out wrong.

To be honest I've come to expect it from the pit, but I have been proved wrong on occasion. I can remember several examples of the pit being serious and genuinely helpful to people in need.

its amazing how easy it is to think that everyone on the internet is a douchebag. But yes, there are some genuine people online, just not enough

I expect it from the Pit too but it still annoys me when someone posts a thread on a serious topic, especially one like this, and then people try to be funny about it.

Back on topic though. This is something that people never expect to have anything to do with them. The example given earlier with the Lithuanian brothel is far too common. I bet there is a similar thing going on near most of posters in this topic. I know there was something in my native Cambridge last year and bet if everybody does some research we will all find a similar racket that has been discovered in our areas.

if i make a lot of money when i'm older, i'll buy an upper-middle class lifestyle and give what's left away. i think it's our job as humans to help eachother. if this was the perfect world we'd spilt our paychecks in half, but that will never happen(and i wouldn't do it myself to be honest)

Hey, it says tell the police if you suspect children are being exploited in a tourist destination. Virginia Beach is a tourist destination, I live there.
