    Stop the Traffik

    People Shouldn't Be Bought and Sold


    Have you ever wondered how your morning coffee got to your breakfast table? Or where your kids' sneakers were before they were on their feet? The answer might be much more horrifying than you could imagine. Human trafficking is one of the most horrendous crimes imaginable. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most common worldwide. Cherie Blair and Steve Chalke explore this dark world, how people have managed to escape, and what the average reader can do to help.

    "Make no mistake about it, Trafficking is Torture. It must not be allowed to continue — this book will help you to do your part, so please buy it and join the fight"

    Emma Thompson



    "This book tackles head on the issues of organised immigration crime and trafficking in human beings as well as exploitation and extreme violence inflicted on victims. It is important that society does not turn a blind eye to this issue. It can be happening on the street where you live, work or socialise; whether that is in a source, transit or destination country. Law enforcement agencies across the world are focussing on this on-going tragedy and they need the help of friends, neighbours and people in agencies that provide support. Don't turn a blind eye."

    Andy Baker

    Deputy Director, UK - Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).



    "I was trafficked. I survived. Men would always say I was the age of their daughter or their girlfriend. Stop and think what you would do if it was your daughter, son, sister, brother. Read this book and it will answer some of your questions and then stop the traffik."

    UK Trafficking Survivor



    "Criminals take advantage of the fact that human beings are the world's most precious 'commodity'. Let's finish what Wilberforce started. We CAN Stop The Traffik. And we MUST."

    Daniel Bedingfield



    "I believe that the STOP THE TRAFFIK Coalition has the potential to provide significant impetus to the United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking' (UN Gift). "

    Antonio Maria Costa, Executive Director, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
