     News: Take action: sign petition to fight trafficking for World Cup

    Human TraffickingI got this today in an email alert from the UK anti-pornstitution activists at Object. http://www.object.org.uk

    Please sign this petition by March 8, International Women's Day.

    Petition to fight trafficking during the World Cup

    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.


    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.

    I felt that one had better die fighting against injustice than to die like a dog or a rat in a trap. I had already determined to sell my life as dearly as possible if attacked. I felt if I could take one lyncher with me, this would even up the score a little bit. -Ida B. Wells-Barnett
