Sex Slavery at Home March 20, 2007

From the BBC:

Sex slavery widespread in England.

Young women tricked into coming to England, often by boyfriends, are being sold off in auctions at airport coffee shops as soon as they arrive.

They are among the thousands of women brought into the UK to be sex slaves, usually with no idea of their fate.

The trade was one of the findings of a BBC News website investigation into slavery in 21st Century England. As the UK marks 200 years since the Parliamentary Act to abolish the slave trade, slavery goes on in another form.

There are some things I find it incredibly difficult to write about because there don’t seem to be adaquate words available.

The F-Word has a good roundup of articles including some women’s stories which you should read if you can.

If you have any spare cash think about making a donation to the Poppy Project.
