C-FAM addressing sex-trafficing for World Cup

WorldNetDaily: 40,000 women 'sex trafficked' for World Cup
In response to reports that 40,000 young women will be brought to Germany from Central and Eastern Europe to "sexually service" men attending the World Cup soccer championship next month, a Catholic group warns that many are desperately poor and will be "sex trafficked" against their will.

Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, or C-FAM, has launched a "Stop World Cup Prostitution" campaign on its website.

C-FAM said that most women are lured into prostitution with promises of jobs as models or waitresses. C-FAM expressed especially disgust at the support the German government is giving to the importation of young women as sexual commodities.
Because the German red light districts are too small to accommodate the soccer fans, the country''s sex industry has built a massive prostitution complex, including a "mega-brothel" in Berlin, next to the main World Cup venue, that can accommodate 650 male clients.

Wooden "sex huts" or "performance boxes" have been built in fenced-in areas the size of a football field, with condoms, showers and parking and a special focus on protecting the customers' anonymity.

So much for it being a victimless crime. May the authorities be thouroughly shame by such practises being exposed. May some of these women be rescued from such trafficers.

I too am appalled and vehmently against human sex trafficking. In fact, I think I wrote something on it in a reply earlier this year at Christina's Real Choice blog. Let me see if I can find it...

Ok, here it is, in comments for:

"On a similar topic, female victims of human trafficking are often tricked (by offers of money and assistance getting a job in the U.S.) and sold into prostitution. Once captured they are told they are in debt towards their capturer and are forced to do prostitution (often involving violence and rape) to pay off the debt. They are threatened with acts of violence towards them or their family if they try to get help. If they become pregnant they are often forced to have an abortion against their will by their master.

Since prostitution is legal in Germany it's probably more difficult for trafficking victims to be found and rescued. Plus it must be understood that many of the victims are so desperately poor that they won't consider it "rescuing" unless they were really tricked into prostitution, the abuse is quite severe, or they aren't receiving any money. They know they'll just be deported back into poverty. I'm not excusing it because it makes my blood boil too. I'm just stating my opinion as someone living on the far eastern side of Germany by Poland where a lot of trafficking victims come from. Also I refrained from using the female gender because although the victims are still almost certainly predominantly female I lived in Berlin too and saw enough to be surprised by the varied gender/ages of prostitutes and the people buying them.

There are a couple of Scandinavian countries that outlaw prostitution on the grounds that it is automatically exploitative. These countries only prosecute the "customers" and not the prostitutes which makes a huge difference because then the prostitutes feel safer cooperating with the police and government agencies. The U.S. makes the mistake of prosecuting the prostitutes also so they end up trying to avoid communicating with police simply because it's not in their best interests to do so.

Sorry, this went a little long. P.S. hope this didn't sound like a lecture as it certainly wasn't meant that way.
