Notes From DC Human Trafficking Conference

Some quick trafficking notes:

In Moldova there are some orphanages that have been found to sell children for 100-200 euros a piece.

Brazil was the last country to abolish slavery in the hemisphere in 1888. Today tens of thousands continue to work in slave like conditions.

In Peru up to 33,000 people may be trapped in slave labor at mining camps.

Several Chinese slave labor scandals have been uncovered in the past few years. These were allowed with the complicit help of corrupt officials. Child slaves, working in brick kilns, were sold to other kilns when the first was forced to shut down.
