Supply and demand
Human Trafficking exists, because there is a demand for its supply.
Illegal child pornography exists because someone wants to see it. A pimp can force a girl to sell her body because someone is paying for it. Forced slave labour goes on, because we demand more of its products… products like chocolate, shrimps, coffee, toys, clothing and fabric; to name just a few. Be aware of the products and services you purchase to reduce the footprint of slave labour.
If you are still under the impression that this has nothing to do with you, please click on the following link: http://slaveryfootprint.org/ and discover how many slaves might be working for you.
