Looks like much more than just a wish to me. Every journey begins with a first step.

Thank you so much J.R, this is good information to note!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The penalties for this abuse must be SO EXTREME, that the perpetrators would have to seriously think if the "profits" are worth the penalty! These penalties MUST be enforced, not just for those who SELL human beings, but for those who BUY THEM!

Without a market, there is no incentive! You have to wonder HOW can someone of means, BUY A SLAVE?! Why not PAY SOMEONE FOR THEIR WORK?

There was a recent case in Long Island -- MILLIONAIRES severely abused 2 Indonesian women they kept as slaves. Links to the story below:

At least the abolitionist movement isn't dead and many people are aware that slavery was only formally and not actually abolished.

Thanks for posting, J.R., and thanks to Marian for the forward.

Poeple can and do own people.
I was a sexual slave from childhood to adulthood. Those that cannot believe this does not exist are ... Well you know!

Thousands of years this has gone on, since the cave people started to raid the camps of their neighbors, for free labor and wives.

This is genuine. I have had this link posted on my page for a long time. You can make a difference and a lot of people are. There is more and more attention being drawn to this issue everyday, which wasn't the case just a few simple years ago. One thing people do not realize sadly is that there are more slaves in the world today than at any other time in human history. The problem never went away.

I tried to post this info on my own group and it got spammed!
Can anyone help me? This has never happened before.

It is appalling that in the 21st century, Slavery should still exist and in many countries be condoned as a way of life.

Victoria there's a problem with the Care2 software. Almost everything in groups is getting removed by the Care2 filters as spam.

You can read about it here:

Excellent start--thanks, Ben O., for posting this in Amnesty International. I'll share this link locally, too, as part of a resource page which already includes www.iabolish.com, another excellent modern abolition organization.
