The Power of The Press

Greetings from The Slave Detective,

Well after posting the article yesterday….Brit girl: ‘My six months of agony as Albanian villain’s £25-a-time hooker’, it appears that The Investigative Journalist didn’t like my comment on his article and the posting was removed.

Now that is an interesting development. There was nothing offensive or incorrect in my posting and yet I wasn’t permitted to be heard.

It appears that The Powers that be don’t want the public to be aware of the negative spin on this article. Other offensive and frankly racist comments have been allowed to stay.

Make of that what you will. I will post this on the article and see what occurs.

This month March 5th until March 9th marks another student movement getting involved in highlighting Human Trafficking:-

S.T.O.P! (Stop Trafficking Of Persons!), a student organization at California State University, Chico, is offering films, panels and activities during national Human Trafficking Awareness Week, March 5–9. S.T.O.P! is a grassroots movement against global human trafficking and modern-day slavery that was founded by CSU, Chico students in spring of 2008. The organizers of the awareness week hope to educate more people about the shocking realities of human trafficking as it exists today.

They have a full week of activities set up to raise the local awareness of Trafficking.

California itself has introduced brave new state regulations to compel business to declare

their work force isn’t subject to Human Trafficking. A small step in the right direction.

Maybe the Sun group should put their money where their mouths are and fund something similar.
