OTHER FORMS OF TRAFFICKING
“I didn’t know I was a slave until I found out I couldn’t do the things I wanted”
~ Frederick Douglass (American Abolitionist, Lecturer, Author and Slave, 1817-1895)
Although sex and labor trafficking are by far the largest categories of human trafficking, still many thousands of victims constitute a smaller fraction that includes forced marriages, child soldiers, chattel slavery, as well as child begging and peddling operations. Rarer still, are those instances of organ removal, and ritual killings. There are additional instances of human trafficking such as the child camel jockeys common in a number of Middle Eastern countries. For the victims of these abuses, there is no solace in their relative rarity.
