  • (1888PressRelease) May 06, 2009 - Los Angeles, CA Anonymous is informing the public, and reporting suspected human trafficking to the government and to competent non-governmental organizations. In accordance with these activities, Anonymous supports the UN Blue Heart Campaign against human trafficking.

    "There is a misconception that human trafficking only concerns the sex trade", says "David Mudkips", a long-time participant in Anonymous. "The sex trade may be the most visible issue here, but trade in human beings is also being done to exploit people as manual labour in factories, farms, desert compounds or even rich private homes." Trafficking victims are afraid to escape due to fear of being punished, being forced to pay illegal freeloader debts, being disconnected from their families, or fear of reprisals against their families. In addition to the manual labor, they may be facing physical, mental or sexual abuse.

    Anonymous has been fighting against human trafficking by reporting it to law enforcement, encouraging litigation, and informing the public through videos, websites and public events. These activities have been ongoing since January 2008. As of April 2009, Anonymous also supports the Blue Heart Campaign.
