.Not so Obvious. by nothingbuteverything .Not so Obvious. by nothingbuteverything
This picture was created for the Not For Sale contest, [link] , which is aimed at educating people in hopes that they will be able to make a difference in the fight against human trafficking. The theme of this photograph is “Who the Victims Are”

The facts are from either [link] or [link] both are sites that are trying to make a positive difference in the world. Keep in mind that there are multiple sites and organizations fighting against human trafficking that I have not mentioned.

UPDATE: this piece won the best in photography!!!! :heart:

27 million people are enslaved today. When most people think of slavery, they think of someone contained by chains, shackles, ropes, and other devices that are used to physically keep someone captive. If someone were to see a person being treated this way, many would jump to their rescue. Of course such scenarios exist where our eyes can physically see that a person is being held captive; however, believe it or not, the most frequent practice is to use less obvious techniques to keep someone captive.

Less obvious techniques include:
-Isolation from the public, family members, religious and ethnic groups
-Confiscation of identification documents
-Use of threats/violence on victims and/or their family
-Threatening to shame victims
-Informing victims they will be imprisoned or deported for immigration violations
-Controlling the victim’s money

A victim could literally be anyone. Most people are aware that some victims of human trafficking are forced into the prostitution or the sex entertainment industry. However, trafficking also occurs in forms of labor exploitation, such as domestic servitude, restaurant work, janitorial work, sweatshop factory work and migrant agricultural work.

Why is fighting against human trafficking so hard? Well, most of the time, we can’t just look at a person’s face and definitely say whether or not they are a victim. In fact, more often than not, victims of human trafficking can’t be recognized by the human eye alone. People don’t have a magic bar code on them which the world can scan and definitively tell whether or not they have been a victim. A victim could literally be anyone.

Faves, features, comments and watches are always welcome and extremely appreciated. I always try to support those who support me, especially watchers, but sometimes life is busy, so thank you for any support in advance! If you use this picture, please send a link! :heart:

Hi. I am with a group in the Philippines trying to empower Filipino migrant workers (we call them Overseas Filipino Workers OFW) with the tools to help fight human trafficking and modern day human slavery. Most people think migrant workers are helpless. we know better. There are 10 million migrant workers from the Philippines and they are not helpless. Most are successful teachers, nurses and professionals. They just need the tools to help their fellow filipinos who are the most vulnerable. Usually the vulnerable are the women who work as domestic workers. We are a small group of techies building the social media based tools to help the strong and successful migrant workers watch out for the weak among us. Can we please use the photo on our site at [link]
we want to put it immediately above the line "We must help ourselves."

Congrats on the Best in Photography win, this is truly a powerful message even in it's simplicity. This really is worth more than a thousand words. As a person who was once held captive against my will for a short period of time, I am one of the survivors, I lived to see past my forced existence, to heal.. many around the world never have that opportunity. They live in some form of enslavement forever. It breaks my heart and makes me feel powerless to help others overcome the way I was lucky enough to be able to. But images like this really do speak out and change lives.. :clap:
