25 February 2007


The 25th March 2007 is the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, an event that will be remembered in many countries around the world on that day.

Unfortunately a modern day form of slavery is still with us. Trafficking in people, particularly women and children, worth an estimated $7 billion per year on a global black market, is alive and well and increasing.

People Trafficking especially affects those who are vulnerable and poor and is happening now in almost every country in the world including Australia.

Stop the Traffik is a global campaign which aims to expose people trafficking and lead governments to action to address this problem.

Visit the above website to sign the declaration of support for the campaign.

For further information you can also visit the Good Shepherd Social Justice Network or the Anti-slavery websites.
