Welcome to SlaveryReport.com. We have dedicated our time and efforts to maintaining a professional avenue to maximize the efforts of reporting Human Trafficking around the world. Alone, we stand against the world’s second largest grossing criminal organization; but, together we can put a dint and maybe even take down the efforts of Human Trafficking altogether.
What is Human Trafficking?
Article 3, paragraph (a) of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons defines Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or 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 labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs. Human Trafficking is a very real and very alive crime. The vast majority of the American Society thought that slavery was abolished after the American Civil War in in the year of 1865. As time has passed by the trafficking of persons has gone unnoticed, unseen…invisible to the world. As more and more people have gone missing, the awareness of a more sinister plot has begun to uncover. As it stands today, there are about 10-30 Million people enslaved today around the world. 270,000 of those people are victims of trafficking in Europe. The US State Department assumes about 17,500 persons are victims of Human Trafficking every year. Approximately 200,000 victims of Human Trafficking are from the United States and are usually Prostitutes, farm hands, house keepers, or factory workers. Women traveling overseas are more likely to be victims of Human Trafficking than men are. Children are abducted from their parents own front yards.
In 2008 a movie starring Liam Neeson was brought to theaters. This movie, Taken, exposed the horrors of Human Trafficking in great detail. The story goes that a man’s daughter travels overseas with a friend to follow a rock band on a tour. While in a European country they meet a young man who seems friendly and got them a taxi back to their hotel. At which point, after dropping them off, the young man calls his employer and reports their location. Only a short time later would masked me break into the home and kidnap both of the young women. In the transition the girl was talking to her father (Liam Neeson), who gathers information from her about her abductors as she’s being taken. Her father is highly experienced in special task force activities and is able to track down his daughter through the twisting mazes from drug house, to pimped out street corners, and finally to a mansion where a rich man is selling women in a secluded basement facility. After a brutal fight, Liam is able to find his daughter and bring her to freedom, all at the same time putty a very large dint in the Albanian abductors operation. In reality; however, 10-30 Million people don’t have a skilled Liam Neeson at their side. In reality they are abducted against their will and never have any hope of ever returning home. With the help of several major organizations such as www.slaverymap.org, www.notforsalecampaign.com, and our own site, www.slaveryreport.com, awareness for Human Trafficking is rising slowly. While Taken brought Human Trafficking to the light, it merely started the cascade that is now in effect.
Here at SlaveryReport.com our goal is to enable victims of Human Trafficking to be found, tracked down, and their attackers brought to justice. Involving the mobile world such as Android and Apple we intend to create several high end applications which can potential save someone’s life. Integrating with our website through our forum database we are able to make enhanced and detailed reports of both a victim and an attacker. In addition to that, we have hopes of developing a Live Reporting application, which allows a victim to report themselves in the heat of the moment on their mobile phone. This application will give a live update of their GPS location, allowing police and officials to track them down and find them, allow them to upload pictures, audio, and videos online to our website database as well as automatically dial 911…all from the click of a single button. While this application is very powerful, it hasn’t even started development yet. Our initial application is about 1/3 of the way completed and requires a great deal of testing before its final debut.
