Most of us take these freedoms for granted, but hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world have had these basic human rights taken away. They are victims of trafficking – modern-day slaves -- and criminals have forced, defrauded, or coerced them into various forms of labor.

Quote:
The UN's International Labor Organization estimates that worldwide about 2.5 million people are victims of trafficking !

Over half of these people are in Asia and the Pacific .

Criminals earn an estimated US$10 billion every year through buying and selling human beings.
So how can we malaysians do our parts of preventing this crime from happening?Or to be more exact,protecting ourself from being the victims of human trafficking?
I happened to watch this movie- EXIT broadcasted by 8TV last night.It is an ironic and frustrating fact that is hard to be accepted by society.The traffickers deceiving and/or forcing people into prostitution, domestic servitude or manual labor. The cruelty of traffickers doing all this llegal trade in human beings and their use by criminals to make money is highly condemmed.

Yes human trafficking has been a worrying issue these days in almost any part of the world. Women, especially young teenagers easily become victims of these heartless predators. It is a horrible and inhumane act to treat another human as an item that can be easily traded or sold for money.

It won't be easy to track down these creatures (the predators? They don't deserve to be called humans) as they have various ways to disguise themselves as ordinary folks and have various types of tricks to lure their victims. The method of prevention must come from ourselves. Most importantly, every one of us should be more wary of our surroundings and learn not to trust any strangers so easily. Although that may make you seem unsociable and unfriendly, it is always better to be safe than be sorry.

There is actually a movie that all of you should watch: "Taken". It has some disturbing parts about how they conduct women trafficking but it is a good movie to spread awareness about security measures a women should take while travelling alone overseas.
