Human Trafficking in your backyard ...How to combat the plague

A crusader for Human Rights from Oregon, Nita Belles has published a book titled "In our Backyard".  The book will be an eye-opener to everybody who reads it.

Just as most people are unaware of the creeping sharia and stealth jihad occuring constantly and ceaselessly in our courts and in our government corridor and making leeway even into our daily life in leaps and bounds, they are unfortunately also unaware of the plague of human trafficking.

Young people are increasingly being forced or coerced into involuntary servitude, bondage, and sexual exploitation. Human trafficking is the second largest and fastest growing criminal industry in the world. Efforts have been made recently to increase public awareness of human trafficking, from a CNN series on modern-day slavery to actors Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s anti-sex-trafficking campaign. Every little bit helps to bring awareness of this menace and the sooner more young people learn about this, the better they will be able to tackle or avoid dangerous elements in our society who are parasites feeding on the vulnerable.

“People think human trafficking is carried out primarily in foreign countries, but it’s everywhere," Ms. Belles says. “Thousands of children and adults in every state of the union are illegally trapped in prostitution, pornography, farm labor, domestic labor, manufacturing, hotel services, restaurants, and other activities.”

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, more than 100,000 children are trafficked yearly in America.

Her book is well researched and details countless instances whereby the innocent or gullible are taken in by men and women who have made evilness a lucrative business.

Here are some examples:

A new friend convinced a 16-year old girl to date a lonely man for $20. The man eventually wanted more than dates, said he loved her, and eventually forced her into prostitution.

An attractive master chef in Manila answered an ad for a restaurant position in America. She was chosen, but upon arrival in the U.S., she had to sign a binding multi-year contract. She was forced to work 12 to 15 hours a day for an abusive boss, unable to find a way out in her new land.

A girl who could not afford college was offered a modeling career earning thousands of dollars a month. She was flown to Los Angeles and housed in a mansion. Her caretaker surprised her with a bill for travel, housing, and photo shoots. She could help pay the huge debts by posing nude, and later in films that turned out to be pornography.

“Escape is difficult,” says Ms. Belles, “since victims are closely watched and have little or no time to be on their own. They need to be rescued.”

Either buy the book or request your local library and your community centres to keep this book on their shelves. It's a must read.
