Human Trafficking is picking up almost daily here in South Africa with the run-up to the 2010 World Cup Soccer tournament. Unscrupulous, evil and completely depraved people are stealing, confusing and conning unsuspecting women and children under false pretenses into becoming sex slaves, child labourers, soldiers and more.
STOP (Stop Trafficking Of People) kicked off their Public Service Announcement campaign recently against human trafficking. STOP's incredibly important campaign kicked off amid increased activity in the illegal sex industry in South Africa and abroad, especially with illegal brothels sprouting up in residential areas across the country.
STOP has created some videos that are available for viewing exactly to combat human trafficking.

We simply cannot sit still while human trafficking is escalating right under our noses. What would you do if it was your daughter that was lured away into a life of prostitution with all kinds of false promises of a great life elsewhere? What if it were your son that was kidnapped to become a child soldier or a child labourer in some God-forsaken corner of the planet? Would you not want everybody out looking for them? However, would it not rather be better to bring a STOP to this heinous activity? Join up now, spread the news!
