    While this list is a commendable resource, it is missing something very important: the number of the United State National Human Trafficking Hotline. The 24/7 toll-free resource is available at 1-888-3737-888.

    I loved the initiative!! I just would like to advise that the hotline number for Brazil is missing the area code for the city. If the phone is in São Paulo the code is 11. In Rio de Janeiro it is 21. It will change depending on the city where the number is located.

      I am told that if dresses aren't oeerrdd together, there is an possibility that they will come in from cloth that originate from different dye lots, thus allowing the color to be different. Probably not by much, however it can be noticeable.. . I don't know, personally I'd rather spend the money for extra to have the dresses all oeerrdd together from the same store than risk them not being the same color. Or at the minimum, the same store chain and so the dresses can be oeerrdd at Store A and shipped to keep B. Could that be a method for you?

    you dont have to look or go far: human trafficking happens right before your eyes: take a

    look into the scientology centers in LA or Clearwater (where, as I read FBI is

    investigating). Concentration camps (RPFs – Rehabilitation Project Forces), where

    unwanted people are held (internet search: mike rinder, marty rathbun etc.) these are

    labour camps (similar to chinese laogais):18 hrs work, write ups of "crimes" as

    "religious" procedures, rice and beans, 20 or more people in tiny places (I've been in

    similar locations in scientology Copenhague), forced abortions (read st. petersburg

    times article The Truth Rundown). so why no make this a theme, which is happening

    right before your eyes, but nobody taking it up, because US government has a vested

    interest in it (sind Clinton wrote an article in the scientology hate-pamphlet Freedom –

    which is similar to Nazis Der Stuermer).
    Scientology is not a religion, it is a cybernetic, military style operated, intelligence

    gathering business venture, where the staff are gradually becoming the means (slaves)

    which the management can use. all scientologists are deployable agents (roy wallis, The

    Road to Total freedom, http://tinyurl.com/6x9e9rp), all scientologists become eventually

    Kampfmenschen (fighting machines without brains).

    thats enough info for now.

    I am currently following a case of a Nigerian sold out as slave in Egypt on the pretence of giving her employment.
    Victim is scared that perpetrators might kill her if her attempt to run away become exposed.
    I have encouraged her to discuss with her master and she did but I am handiccapped by resources to empower to move. I need some confidentiality and assurances to release her telephone numbers and address to you. That way, you may contact her and set her free from slavery. Her name is Flora

    There is unfortunately no number listed for Italy! I was just there on vacation on the beach. I bought a shawl from a man selling his goods along the beach in Terracina who clearly was not Italian. I spoke to him, and he said he was Indian, and was previously working in Dubai with a good job. He was looking for a new opportunity and his "new employer" promised he would do very well in Italy, and make a lot of money. He did not have the required 12,000 euros he was to pay in order to go to Italy and was lied to. Now he spends his days walking up and down the beach selling 10 euro shawls (some days he sells none) in order to pay up the rest of the owed 12,ooo euros! Apalling. I know there are many many like him there but not sure the Italian government is interested or cares.....anyone know who to contact in Italy???

    Hello, Im a contractor in Kuwait and would like to know how I can report The so called great state of Kuwait? Here they take passports, torture, rape and murder their housemaids as well as can pull up on the streets and throw a woman in their cars rape them and throw them in the desert? Kuwait is a terrible place for women not of Kuwait decent. The sad fact is the American base has signs all over about human trafficking and yet turn their backs on what the Kuwait government is doing.
