Our Part In Human Trafficking

“You can’t take the evil of slavery out of the world and abolish it without making the world more just. You will never prevent people from getting caught up in sex trafficking while they are so desperate that they have no other choice but to sell themselves. As long as we in the West crave ever more excess, we conspire in their desperation, exploiting it and make ourselves sick in the process. We are well off, yet our society has never been more miserable. We suffer today from the disease of excess, from obesity, drug and alcohol abuse and resulting family breakdown. We must change the way we live, change the way the world is governed and create a new world order, both for ourselves and globally.”

– Clare Short, Member of British Parliament and former Secretary of State for International Development, who resigned from her post in protest of the war in Iraq.
