what is human trafficking...

The UN definition Article 3 of the UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children (2000): Trafficking in Persons shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring and receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs. A person is considered to have been trafficked even if they have given their consent to the above. And a child anyone under 18 can be considered trafficked if they have been recruited and transported into exploitive or slavery-like conditions even when they have not been deceived, forced, threatened, abducted or coerced. The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of a child for the purpose of exploitation shall be considered trafficking in persons even if it does not involve any of the means set forth.
Comments: Human trafficking is an exploitation of human rights and freedom. It is a discrimination of life. The victims who was trapped in this problem will suffer and lost their self-respect. Human Trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons: by the threat or use of kidnapping, force, fraud, deception or coercion, or by the giving or receiving of unlawful payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, and for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. human trafficking has been gradually increase since the world has flourished since the reign of the aristocracy since the 13th century to show an age where people start realizing the need for elimination of the system of oppression.In oder towards achieving equality in life, especially referring to the economic aspect has been voiced by various figures such as Marx.what I want to say here is, not merely refer to Marx's concept of itself, but instead want to state that these activities have existed since long time ago.Exploitation by those authorities, have money and influence overshadow the situation where they exploit the whole aspects of community life, especially those who are weak, for the sake of their cause to the people who controlled pressure, but in order to continue the struggle alive, they need only comply with the desires that rule.

What are they eating?

Before we go through our topic, let us show some inhuman behaviours which still happened in this world on





This is not a story, these pictures didn't been edited by any photo edit software, but it is real, taken by a journalist of Taiwan. The "INGREDIENTS" which is going to being cooked, is a human's baby which just come to 8months from China. "HE" had been killed by her own MOTHER, and sell to the restaurant in TAIWAN!

Taiwan has recently circulating a shocking trend of infant, the men eat a large cup with seven to eight months infant, the complement to soup, each cup of soup worth RM2000. The infant who been sacrificed all is female's baby.

The men eating the cooked infant just like having a Happy Chicken Wings Meal in KFC!!!

In the some corner of the world... There are some inhuman, illegal behaviour is carried out quietly... The infants, reffer to a very young offspring of human, they been killed before they come to this world... They even never open their eyes...then, just been killed quietly, become a cup of delicious soup on the table... What do you feel after reading it ? Will you feel, those infants who never open their eyes before they died is lucky? They don't have any CHANCE to protect themselve.

Actually the China government had alrealy established and announed the laws of stoping their resident to kill the female infant...but it still not very effective...somehow,the status of the female in China, as we know, is not valueable than male...it is one of the factor cause to the phenomena today.

human activists said... actually it's hard to believe those thing,but i guess some tradition believe this thing.for some reason,it could be good for them,but in my opinion,we should not eat that kind of thing,because,there are still many type of food outside there can be eat.In order to gain awareness among community,the co-operation might be good,but,some people might not care about what actually happen around them.What if,we get co-operate with NGO's n NPO's in making the such thing.There are plenty amount of them here,and we should not just let them survive on issue that talk about enviroment only.

human activists said... as we know, all the baby are female baby. Now at china, every parents just can have one child only. So besed on traditional chinese mindset, most of the parents hope that can get the boy baby. But some time dream would be came true. So if they didnt eliminate the baby, they can't get the second baby and hopefully is a boy.

Finally, this incident happen.

Types of Human Trafficking

There are 8 types of Human trafficking as below :

-Sex Slaves -Slave Soldiers -Sex Tourism -Organ Trafficking -Skin Trafficking -Internet Criminal Pedophilia -Ritual Torture -Labor Slaves

Today, 27 million people are enslaved throughout the world, despite the fact that in every single country, slavery is outlawed. The price of Human life has decreased substantially since 1850 when the African slave trade piqued. Today an Indian child can be bought for a mere $35, an Eastern European woman for $500,and a Brazilian agricultural laborer for $100. These numbers are staggering, considering that in 1850 an African slave was nominally worth $40,000. The cost of human life has gone down because people as a commodity have become expendable. There are three times the amount of people in the world today than there were in 1850. If a slave is not useful or tries to rebel, they are killed and replaced immediately. The internet has made it vastly easier for traffickers to contact potentialvictimms and to lure them into traps based on job and education promises.

The definition of modern slavery is every bit as cruel as that of the old. Labor slavery is definied as forced work without pay, under the threat of violence. But, that only covers 1 of the 8 different types of modern slavery. Labor slaves make up the largest fraction of slaves worldwide, but today slavery can be found in many other arenas.

human activists said... in India,More than 2.3 million girls and women were believed to be in the sex industry, and experts believed that more than 200,000 persons were trafficked into, within, or through the country annually. There were approximately three million trafficking victims in the country, and two thousand rescues a year. Women's rights organizations and NGOs estimated that more than 12,000 and perhaps as many as 50,000 women and children were trafficked into the country annually from neighboring states for commercial sexual exploitation. According

to an International Labor Organization (ILO) estimate, 15 percent of the country's estimated 2.3 million prostitutes were children, while the UN reported that an estimated 40 percent of prostitutes were below 18 years of age. Tribal persons made up a large proportion of the women forced into sexual exploitation.

human activists said... Japan is a transit and destination country for human trafficking. The traffickers are reportedly part of Japanese organized crime syndicates, particularly the Yakuza. Japan is a destination country for women and children who are trafficked from China, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and to a lesser extent Latin America for sexual and labor exploitation. Many of the trafficking victims were coerced into commercial sexual exploitation in strip clubs, sex shops, hostess bars, private video rooms, escort services, and mail-order video services. NGOs reported that in some cases brokers used drugs to subjugate victims. Women also voluntarily migrate to work in Japan but are later coerced into exploitative conditions. Women are usually held in debt bondage for $26,000 to $43,000 for their living expenses, medical care, and other necessities. moreover, Japan has a significant amount of internal trafficking of women and girls who are trafficked for sexual exploitation.

human activists said... The most lucrative part of trafficking involves sex trafficking, and the trafficking in women and children for the sex trade has emerged as an issue of global concern which is facilitated by porous borders and advanced communication technologies and is becoming increasingly transnational in scope (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes International (ECPAT) 2004a:1). Sex trafficking includes forced prostitution, bride trafficking, child prostitution and child pornography (Ellerman 2002:3; Boe, IOM 2004:4). Girls as young as twelve years old are sold to traffickers where newcomers, usually virgins, are repeatedly raped. This is the seasoning process where the victims spirit is broken so that she becomes easier to control. The cage brothels in Bangladesh are well documented where victims are kept in cages.

human activists said... Many children and minors are end up working in slave like conditions as household servants, in plantations or on construction sites; others are forced to join organized begging groups. Global March (2004:5) reports that about 50-100 boys, aged about 8-15, some even younger, are being trafficked from Bangladesh to the Gulf States for use as camel jockeys in the Gulf States. In addition to the child sex offender, persons involved in the commercial exploitation of children may include parents, family members, community leaders, private sector and organised criminal networks.

Causes of Human Trafficking

Trafficking is a many sided problem. Here is a round up of the causes

Countries or regions of origin:

Abject poverty, especially among women A lack of political, social and economical stability A lack of reasonable and realistic prospects Situations of armed conflict and oppression Domestic violence and disintegration of the family structure Gender discrimination Lack of access to education and information The HIV-AIDS reality

Countries or regions of destination:

The expense of social charges that employers need to pay for the social protection of regularly employed workers

Increasing demand for cheap and exploitable labourers in the construction, agricultural and industrial sectors

Increasing demand for cheap and exploitable domestic labourers A rise in the demand for sex workers in a highly lucrative and globalising sex industry

Universal factors:

Ever more limits and obstacles to legal migration channels to countries with stronger economies and/or regions with better prospects

A lack of public awareness of the dangers of trafficking The high profit potential for those engaged in the criminal activity The sophisticated organisation, resources and networking capacity of criminal networks

A lack of effective anti-trafficking legislation, and if such legislation exists, a lack of effective enforcement

Global economic policies that foster exclusion of marginalised people Disintegration of social protection networks Widespread corruption in countries of origin, of transit and of destination among the persons capable or responsible to combat trafficking:

Burma: There are many causes of human trafficking in Burma. The military juntas gross economic mismanagement, human rights abuses, and its policy of using forced labor are the top causal factors for Burmas significant trafficking problem. The official ban on overland emigration of most young women drives some seeking to leave the country into the hands of travel facilitators, who may have ties with traffickers. The lacks of job opportunities and higher incomes have also pushed Burmese to migrate into one of its five neighboring countries. This situation has created an opportunity for traffickers to lure the victims to other countries with false premises.

Malaysia: Malaysia is a destination country for a significant number of men women, and children who are trafficked from Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam, Burma, and the People's Republic of China (P.R.C.), India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Pakistan for sexual and labor exploitation. Many victims voluntarily migrate to Malaysia to work in factories, construction and agricultural sectors, or as domestic servants, but are later coerced into debt bondage or involuntary servitude. The Malaysian NGO, Tenaganita reported that 65 percent of the trafficking victims in Malaysia are for forced labor.

Indonesia: UNICEF argues that the lack of birth registration increases the vulnerability to trafficking. About 60 percent of children who are under five years old do not have birth certificates; about half are not registered anywhere.

Safe House to be Established for Victims of Human Trafficking in Sabah, Malaysia June 24, 2009

Sabah will set up a safe house for foreign women who are victims human trafficking and domestic abuse.

The safe house will be set up at an undisclosed location and will start operating later this year, said Assistant Community Development and Consumer Affair Minister Datuk Herbert Timbon Lagadan.

He said the facility would be able to accommodate at least 20 women.

It would be operated by the Community Development Ministry, he said after opening a workshop to set up an anti-human trafficking monitoring committee jointly organised by the Archdiocesan Human Development Committee of Sabah and the International Catholic Migration Commission of Indonesia here. He said abused women were now sent to the peninsula to be put under a protective programme.

However, Herbert claimed that the problem of human trafficking or abuse in the state was not serious. Last year, the state recorded only three such cases.

Meanwhile, National Anti-Human Trafficking Council secretary Ahmad Ismail said it was unfair of western countries to accuse Malaysia of being a transit point foreign citizens like those from Pakistan, Iraq and India.

They cannot say that we are not doing anything to tackle this matter. Actually, the foreign citizens come into the country using valid social visit passes, but they leave using unofficial channels, he added. We need the cooperation of non-governmental organisations and the public to check this problem, he said.

Malaysia outcry at US trafficking blacklisting June 17, 2009

Malaysia has accused the United States of unfair treatment over its decision to re-list the country on a human trafficking blacklist.

Washington's annual "Trafficking in Persons Report" says Malaysia is failing to comply with minimum standards to eliminate trafficking and "is not making significant efforts to do so".

Last year the report elevated Malaysia to a "watch list" from the 2007 blacklist after finding that it was "making significant efforts" to comply with standards.

"It is unfair to put us back on the list as we are doing our best," Malaysian Deputy Home Minister Abu Seman Yusop told reporters. "We will have to consider our next action in opposing the relisting of our country on the blacklist," he added.

Abu Seman said the Malaysian government did not condone human trafficking and had taken stern action to deal with the problem, including enacting an anti-human trafficking law in 2007 and setting up a special task force.

The report said that while the Malaysian government took early steps to fight sex trafficking, it has yet to fully tackle labour trafficking. It said there were "credible allegations", including those in a US Senate report this year, that some immigration officials took part in trafficking and extorting refugees from Myanmar.

Malaysia, which is listed with 16 other countries, including six newly-added African nations, could face sanctions such as the withholding of non-humanitarian, non-trade related US aid. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said recently his country was being used as a transit point for illegal immigrants.

Recent incidents include the arrests of 17 Iraqis and seven Indonesians over the weekend after authorities intercepted a boat that was trying to smuggle some of them to Australia via Indonesia.

Authorities have said 12 suspected illegal immigrants were drowned off Malaysia's southern coast in the last two months when they tried to sneak out of the country.
