  • INTERNATIONAL DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

    Trafficking of people is a large illicit business, second only to the drug trade and equal with the trafficking of illegal armaments. Every year on March 25th, the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade offers the opportunity to remember those who suffered and died at the hands of the brutal slavery system. The International Day also reminds us that racism and prejudice are dangerous as they enable terrible things to happen to people due solely to their nationality.

    Learn the stories of modern slaves and find out information at antislavery.org.au and endslaverynow.org . Consumer pressure is influential in reducing slavery.
