Description

The UN World Day against Trafficking in Persons takes places on 30 July. Out of several stories of survivors of human trafficking we created two characters in order to give voice to the victims of this terrible crime. The terrible human rights situation of minorities such as the Muslim Rohingya is causing an increase of human trafficking and violence in south-eastern Asia. Thousands of refugees have already become victims of human trafficking and slavery. In recent months, about 45,000 Rohingya fled to other ASEAN countries where most of them live under catastrophic conditions. Women of the ethnic Shan minority near the Sino-Burmese border are smuggled into China to marry Chinese men. #igivehope #UseUrRights More Information here: facebook.com/rightsbehindyou, twitter: @rightsbehindyou A video by Society for Threatened Peoples/Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker.
