Human Trafficking Poster by RJDaae Human Trafficking Poster by RJDaae
This is my photography entry for :iconkneelingglory:'s 'Not For Sale' Human-Trafficking Awareness project: [link] (I added the text to the photo in PaintShop Pro, as I was told I was allowed to.)

Nobody really knows exactly how many people are sold into slavery each year, but there are estimated 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.

For more information on human trafficking, and what you can do to help stop it:

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


Here's another piece I did on the problem of trafficking:

Please just let me know your thoughts! Thank you so much!

In my opinion, slavery never should have existed. Selling people for profit or sex? That's inhuman.

I see profit when I see others, just not from trafficking. Nice picture.

I really like the concept of this, the only thing I am not too keen on is the word 'history' on split up over two lines, I think that spoils it a little.

It's also a bit jarring to see the phrase "your fellow man" and then it's clearly a woman's ear we're looking at.

Maybe "what do you see when you look at a person" or "your fellow human being"?

I was using it in the general sense of the term: so, shorthand for "a member of mankind". Also, I felt that 'fellow human being' would make the statement less 'punchy' and interfere with the aesthetics of the text layout. I did consider it, though. :)

Infants and children are being trafficked as well, but that's called "adoption" so almost nobody cares.

(Seriously. Not just the domestic infant adoption in the U.S.--more often finding a baby for needy adults than finding parents for a needy child--but also children being passed off as orphans in other countries and then sold to Americans who don't know any better. Governments are wising up but a lot of it's too little, too late.)

People who think human trafficking is alright should suffer the most painful death imaginable...

NO! Not death! That would be doing them a favor! They should suffer the same kind of Hell they put their victims through! As far as I'm concerned, scum like that shouldn't be allowed to breathe the same air we do!!!

This topic gets pushed so far out of society's sight today, it's such a devastating fact that people are still bought and sold like animals, more so than ever before in history.
I can't even begin to comprehend how a person could be so moral-less and have absolutely no remorse for committing such acts, it's so horrible.

But I really love this piece and I'm glad it's raising awareness at the same time.

I have been involved with my university's human trafficking awareness and genocide awareness groups for the past few years and I have never seen a poster describing the reality and presence of human trafficking as well as yours. This is chilling and sobering and I commend you on your creative ability and heartfelt plea to bring awareness to this terrible travesty. Have you read The Natashas? If not, I highly recommend it.
