    This petition has just been brought to our attention by the European Women's Lobby

    content of the petition letter

    Dear President Barroso,

    Thousands of women and girls will be trafficked into Germany for prostitution during the World Cup. I urge you as President of the European Commission to take action, in cooperation with EU countries, to stop this crime.

    800,000 people are trafficked across borders every year.
    90% are women and girls.
    The majority are sexually exploited.

    Celebrate the World Cup.
    Fight sexual slavery.

    -signee

    Brothels are legal in Germany.
    A massive increase in demand is anticipated with the influx of male supporters.
    This demand cannot be met except through trafficking.
