This is a version of a website I created for a class (C@CM). We were supposed to make a fansite for our favorite movies. I did this instead.
Trafficking in Persons Report, 2005
TIPS report facts:
Many nations misunderstand this definition, overlooking internal trafficking or forms of labor trafficking in their national legislation, and often failing to distinguish trafficking from illegal migration. Most often left out of interpretations of this definition is involuntary servitude, a form of trafficking that does not require movement. The TVPA defines “severe forms of trafficking,” as:
- sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age; or
- the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.
One of the most effective and most shocking pieces of each years’ TIPs report are the photos of the victims. Like the one above, they are not only aesthetically pleasing but heart wrenchingly sad.
