    Humans enslave fellow human beings and abuse animals and the creation. The reason this planet will have an imminent, violent judgment, not natural ceasing. Those who do nothing about slavery problems are villains. No happiness or peace for evil, selfish species like mankind.

  6. Worked in Asia

    We should put public pressure on the companies in Asia whose business customs include freely handing out gifts of sexual services to their business guests. Of course, the receiving party's employers deserve public scrutiny as well, especially since a very large number of them are American and European companies.

    Many of the sexual providers involved are young girls (and boys) and because many of these Asian companies are doing so well financially, the sex traffickers they depend on can expect a very steady, and growing, source of demand.

    I applaud CNN and Demi Moore for committing to this important program. Our small NGO in Nepal, http://www.didiproject.org, has just translated the American book SOLD by Patricia McCormick into Nepali. It describes the plight of a young Nepali girl who is trafficked to India. Hers is the fate of over 15,000 girls every year. The book "BECHIYEKI" is now available in the Nepali language. We are seeking support for buying and distributing this book everywhere in the country to educate girls and their families about being safe and staying in school. Nepali girls deserve to be protected. $1 will buy a book.
