Human trafficking Human trafficking is a gross violation of Human Rights. Human Trafficking involves the movement of people within and across borders through the use of deception, coercion or force. People who participate in the criminal activity of Human trafficking are motivated by the ongoing exploitation of their victims in a crime that is often difficult to identify. It is estimated that Human trafficking takes in profits as high as $36 Billion every year. Human Trafficking is the third most profitable crime after illicit drug and arm trafficking.
There are more slaves in the world today than ever before in history 80% of slaves are under the age of 24. Children are sold for between $7000- $14000 to become suicide bombers in countries where the average annual income is $2600 a year. Babies are sold on the black market.
Human Trafficking Females make up more than half the number of exploited victims of Human Trafficking world wide. Most victims of sex trafficking are women and girls who make up 98% of the world’s sexually exploited. Males make up 60% of those who are exploited for labour purposes. No country is exempt from the crime of Human trafficking and women, children and men across all religions and ethnicities are being exploited. In most regions 80% of human trafficking involves sexual exploitation and the remaining 20% involve labour exploitation.

Forced Marriages “A forced marriage is when a person gets married without freely and fully consenting, because they have been coerced, threatened or deceived” (Attorney General’s Department, 2015). Young women and girls are particularly vulnerable to forced marriages. Globally, there are approximately 14 million girls who are forced into marriages each year, with some girls being as young as 8 and 9 (Human Rights Watch, 2015). In Australia, there have been reported cases of young Australian citizens being forced into marriages overseas. There are no reliable estimates on the prevalence of forced marriages in Australia as cases often go undetected due to under reporting and further research is needed in order to detect, track & monitor those who are at risk..

Where is our food coming from? -There is slave labour in Australia. -Some of the food that we eat is picked and packed by exploited labour. -Workers are often under paid and exploited by labour hire companies. -The demand for cheaper products by big business is an incentive for people to cut costs on labour.
