Trafficking by Fredrik-Rattzen Trafficking by Fredrik-Rattzen
After watching a movie called Trade (go watch it!) a few weeks ago, I realized how little I actually knew about the subject of sex trafficking, and that I had to express myself somehow about it. I hope this speaks for itself.

Vanellope: *grabs the money and puts it in to try and free all the girls she can from the machine*

Calhoun: *takes the back of her gun and bangs it against the glass untill the glass breaks, freeing ALL the girls*

Anyhow...Cool drawing. Explains it perfectly.

This is a very good piece. I think I will probably look up that film. I know a little bit about the situation, but not that much, and it's something that I think people should probably be much better informed about.

Good concept. In my country many girls are kidnapped to be sold as prostitutes or sex slaves. Many of them disappear mysteriously and then, they're found dead several days later.
A few days ago a girl was found dead who mysteriously disappeared. She went to a supposed job interview, but in the end it was fake. Since that moment she was held captive for 11 days by a horrible man who may have been associated with a sex trafficking network. At least that was the first thing was suspected.
Also, several years ago, a
woman also mysteriously disappeared and her mother is still looking for her. Probably she has been kidnapped and sold as a prostitute.
In Latin America there are many gangs that "work" in sex trafficking. Here in Argentina are almost everywhere, it'so creepy!!! But anyway, our corrupt government never does anything to stop it.

It's also something that happens frequently, in all countries. 

It doesn't so much matter how the film ends- because it's real.

Amazing - love the concept - Trade is a great movie - I knew nothing about Sex Trafficking until I did a project on it in my Sociology class - I think people need to be more informed!

I'm sorry but you're wrong, sex trafficking is included in the umbrella term "human trafficking" (it includes forced prostitution, labour and organs) which is a crime in Finland. And it do happen in Finland since it happens in Sweden (my country). Here's a Finnish page about human trafficking and what it involves: www.humantrafficking.fi

There is sex trafficking in Finland and your country is also a transit country for people coming from Russia and the Baltic.
