Activist explains the Pacquiao factor

Activist Cecilia Flores-Oebanda explains to CNN the challenges she faces every day running an anti-trafficking organization in the Philippines.

In the video interview above she says the trafficking gangs regularly threaten her life but can't stop her, and neither can the frustrating shortcomings of the Philippines political and legal systems.

Oebanda adds that winning the support of boxing superstar and Filipino hero, Manny Pacquiao has given her a new drive.

    An important fight but the government of the Philippines needs to be on side, not quite sure that is the case. Of course there are many factions which seek to thwart Cecilia Flores-Oebanda efforts. I personally believe she is a good person, but in this world that we live, you need to be able to prove that over and over again. A wise lesson.

    The religious hero(s) and government should join force against human trafficking.
