Today, September 23 "International Day Against Sexual Exploitation and Trafficking in Women and Children", the Department of Equality Ayuntamiento de Torre Pacheco joins this commemoration and sends a message of awareness to the neighbors about this serious problem, which mainly affects women and girls.

Trafficking has become the twenty-first century slavery, many victims are recruited by deception or violence against their will and subjected to labor or sexual exploitation.

It is not always related to poverty situations, anyone can be a victim to fall into networks of trafficking victims.

According to the International Labor Organization, an estimated 2.4 million people are subject to exploitation as a result of human trafficking.

Only in Spain more than 80% of the proceeds of prostitution trafficking in women and girls.

According to the latest data provided by the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, this dark business generates about 3,000 million euros per year, 8.3 per day.

Trafficking in human beings is a profound violation of human rights, to end it is necessary visibilizarla and become aware of their existence in our environment, emphasizing potential customers so that they are not complicit, without customers there is woman for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

Finally, the Councillor for Equality, Veronica Martinez Marin, recalled that Murcia has an emergency telephone 24 hours to assist victims and to channel emergency calls through the device 112.
