One Man's Fight for the World's Forgotten
As the cofounder of the Jubilee Campaign, Danny Smith has been at the forefront of human rights campaigning for over twenty-five years. Today as a human rights pressure group the Jubilee Campaign fights for causes worldwide.
Shouting into the Silence shares some of Dannys stories. Fast-moving and inspirational, it takes the reader to some of the darkest places on Earth and uncovers many of the twenty-first centurys most shameful secrets, including child sex slavery, human trafficking, the killing of street children, and the orphanages of China.
Not just a passive observer of these travesties, Danny posed as a sex tourist to get laws in the United Kingdom on child abuse changed; he went to Moscow to fight for the Siberian Seven; and to the streets of India, to break the cycle that had meant that the children of prostitutes would always end up in the same trade. His relentless battle on behalf of children at risk is an inspiring example of the difference one person can make.
