The World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) issued a statement marking the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons yesterday (30 July 2020).
The YCL is Britain’s affiliate to WFDY, one of over 180 progressive and anti-imperialist youth organisations from more than 100 countries that are members. WFDY organises campaigns as well as solidarity brigades in support of peace, self-determination for all people and social and economic progress.
“Today, 30th of July is World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. We would like to highlight and denounce the trafficking of women because, as we commented at our 20th General Assembly, “there is a whole structure of social inequality with multiple forms of violence such as trafficking, women who find themselves in the situation of prostitution, labour and sexual exploitation under conditions of violence”. All our condemnation of human trafficking, of those who use it for sexual exploitation, slavery and all kinds of atrocities.“
