Child Trafficking Poster by RJDaae Child Trafficking Poster by RJDaae
This is my traditional-medium entry for :iconkneelingglory:'s 'Not For Sale' Human-Trafficking Awareness project: [link] (I might do another entry, in one of the other categories.
Entrants are supposed to choose a particular aspect of the many-faceted crime of human trafficking, and focus their artwork on it. I chose child trafficking.
It's difficult to find any definitive statistics as to exactly how many children a year are sold or forced into some form of slavery (due to secretiveness involved in such dealings), but most of the numbers I found were between 300,000 and 500,000 a year, and that's just for children being trafficked internationally. Who knows how many more are sold without ever leaving their own countries... :(
It's not only the children that suffer, though: there are thought to be nearly 30 million people trapped in some kind of slavery today. The Atlantic slave trade, which kidnapped and enslaved Africans between the 1500s and 1800s, brought less than 15 million to the New World, total.

And, for those of you who have stamp collections, here's a stamp that someone made:

I can only imagine what they do to these kids when they're sold. Labor, prostitution, stripping, porn, this is a fucked up world.

Price tag line is a good move.
As for the theme...
Well, when all morals are abolished and golden calf is the only object of adoration, it is no wonder we end up with disgusting stuff like this.

I wish all these kidnappers and pedophiles burnt in hell just like Adolf Hitler: kidnapping and pedophilia equals holocaust, and everyone who rapes or kidnaps someone, or even loves that, are Hitlers and kind of nazi lovers!

Put em on a boat in a place nowhere near land in shark infested waters and blow the boat up, whatever sap survives gets eaten by the sharks, a win win for everyone      ( except the scum who traffic and pedophiles )

This is a such good approach to the topic. It's good to see that people have done art even on subjects that are hard to talk about...but definitely need to be brought to light.
