Nútímans trældómur – Nútímans hetjur / Modern day slavery- Modern day heroes

‘’Fyri 20 árum síðani vistu vit einki um menniskjahandil í norðurevropa. Hvat hendi tá og hvat gongur fyri seg nú? Hvat kunnu vanlig fólk, eins og vit gera, fyri at steðga hesum í okkara býi?’’

“ 20 years ago we did not know about trafficking in Northern Europe. What happened then and what is going on now?  What can we, as ordinary people, do to stop it now in our city?”

‘’Menniskjahandil er eitt brotsverk, men kemur fyri kring allan heimin, í bæði fátøkum londum og ríkari londum. Tað er ikki óvanligt, at brotsmenn í ymiskum londum samstarva, og síðani á ymiskan hátt misnýta fólkini, ið vera flutt úr stað til stað. Menniskjahandil (vaksin og børn) hevur oftani samband við annað slag av altjóða brotsverki, tildømis rúsevnis- og vápnahandli. Menniskjahandil er eitt goymt virksemi, og er ein avleiðing av undirløgdum trupulleikum, so sum sosiobúskaparligum standi, fátækadømi, mangul uppá javnrætti og almennum verndarneti. Kvinnur ið gerast offur í menniskjahandli í Svøríki vera oftani kynsliga misnýttar ella noyddar í prostitutión, tá ið tær vera innfluttar. Eftirspurningurin er motorurin handan menniskjahandil. Hetta kemur ikki bert kynsligum tænastum við, men eisini øðrum misnýstluháttum, tildømis tvingsilsarbeiði og yrkisgøgnshandil.’’ – imt.se

English:

“Human trafficking is a crime, but is occurring all over the world, in both poorer countries and richer countries. It is not uncommon for several perpetrators in different countries to cooperate and then in different ways exploit the persons transported from one place to another. Human trafficking (adults and children) is very often linked to other forms of international organized crime such as drug- and weapon trade. Trafficking is a hidden activity and is a symptom of underlying problems such as socio-economic conditions, poverty, lack of equality and lack of social protection networks. Women who become victims of trafficking in Sweden are often sexually exploited or forced into prostitution when transported. The demand is the engine of human trafficking. This applies not only to sexual services but also to other forms of exploitation such as forced labor and trade of organs.” -imt.se

 

We have invited Örjan Wallin from IMT Insamlingstiftelsen mot trafficking to FIMFF19 to have a talk about the issues which are faced today globally and with a Nordic perspective.
