UK government trafficking action plan

The UK government today today published their long-awaited policy document on human trafficking. It is a long but interesting document for all those involved in the struggle for justice for those trapped in various forms of slavery in the UK - please read it and educate yourself.

The key objective from The Truth Isn't Sexy point of view appears to be objective 12

“To reduce the demand for trafficked people in the UK” with the action “To undertake publicity and awareness raising measures targetted at reducing demand”

The text accompanying says:

“A key element of the new approach to prostitution is to focus not only on those who exploit individuals through prostitution, including the traffickers, but also to address the demand side. This means building on the innovative work, undertaken as part of Operation Pentameter, to target men who might use massage parlours, saunas or other kinds of brothels, through men’s magazines, websites or other targeted media using advertisements which raise awareness of trafficking for sexual exploitation and warn of the risks involved.”

Thanks for letting us know. Not sure I'll manage to read all 114 pages, though.
