Billions trafficking and enslaving “disposable people”

By Lara Trace (abolitionist)

“It’s all about the money. Human trafficking is insanely profitable. If you really think about it: You can sell a kilo of Heroin once; You can sell a 13-year-old girl 20 times a night, 365 days a year.”

Read this about a rescue at a truck stop

An estimated $150 billion is made by human traffickers, after the number one crime: drug trafficking…just think about the heroin epidemic happening in your neighborhood and illegal drugs being sold on your street. Trafficking drugs and people are street crimes, highly profitable. And it spreads like a plague:  Alaskan Arctic Development concerns

John Trudell calls this trafficking process “mining humans.” The atrocity we are seeing with drugs and human trafficking is a sign we are living in an unhealthy damaged society.

Watch these:

I posted several articles on this topic when this blog focused on human trafficking and modern day slavery, starting back in 2012.

Young men and women must be taught at an early age that women and children are not for sale.  These traffickers find new victims every single day and find buyers for them.

In the money game, every human sold becomes a profit machine, so the only way to end this slavery is to stop playing this game and buying sex.  Our children need to know that they could be snatched off the street and trafficked, and even killed.

There are an estimated 20.9 million victims of human slavery, with 1.5 million in North America.

Since 1999, Dr. Transchel has been researching modern day human trafficking around the world. Her findings, after interviews with dozens of victims, will surprise and shock even those who consider themselves well-informed. Besides for working as a professor of History at CSU Chico, Dr. Transchel provides trainings for various branches of the military as well as the state department, on domestic and international human trafficking and she also serves as an expert witness on human trafficking from Moldova in Federal Asylum hearings.

 

Sign HERE: Tell U.S. law enforcement to crack down on $150 billion human trafficking epidemic… you are not powerless… thank you!

  1. Reblogged this on Taking Sides and commented:
    There is no atrocity that you can conceive that has not or may even now be being committed by humans against other humans. And if there is a profit to made into the sadistic bargain, you can be sure that it is happening somewhere to someone.

    As Marx once quoted in a footnote a certain T.J. Dunning,

    “Capital is said by a Quarterly Reviewer to fly turbulence and strife, and to be timid, which is very true; but this is very incompletely stating the question. Capital eschews no profit, or very small profit, just as Nature was formerly said to abhor a vacuum. With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 per cent. will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 per cent. certain will produce eagerness; 50 per cent., positive audacity; 100 per cent. will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 per cent., and there is not a crime at which it will scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged. If turbulence and strife will bring a profit, it will freely encourage both. Smuggling and the slave-trade have amply proved all that is here stated.” (T. J. Dunning, l. c., pp. 35, 36.)

    source: see footnote # “15” here — (and incidentally, reading the short excerpted chapter from Capital where that footnote appears is also, in my opinion, apposite to the issue of slavery, whatever it appears and whatever its content.)

    Of course, not everything is a matter of ‘capital,’ but when as you point out, Lara, hundreds of billions of dollars are being thrown around and accounted for in profit, then whatever the issue, it is squarely intersected by that particular plague and pox on human decency, that is to say, that you can’t talk about and understand the one without also talking about and understanding the other . . .

    This is in itself an extremely unsettling issue, and indeed, no one is talking about this, at least not nearly as much or as loudly as they should be.

    1. At one time, Norman, I considered turning this blog into issues of modern slavery – and did post quite a bit. We are not talking about it since it’s invisible for most of us. I read up. It’s disgusting and very real.
