Society needs to fight against these traffickers. Law enforcement needs to enforce more discrepant punishments to those involved in the trafficking of human beings, and increase cooperation, coherence and visibility in human trafficking in both destination and transit countries. Help needs to be provided for people who have been trafficked and start a plan to stop any future victims of trafficking. The demand for cheaper products in Europe has rose, therefore increasing the amount of human trafficking. If more countries refused to buy such products, the demand for slavery would decrease, and the Human Trafficking statistics would then decrease.
The New England settlers manufactured and shipped rum to West Africa; West Africa traded slaves to the West Indies for molasses and money . From the very beginning, they treated African Americans like an object or animals instead of another human being with feelings and emotions. Women that were pregnant gave birth to children already classified as slaves. After the American Revolution, people in the north started to realize the oppression and treatment of blacks to how the British was treating them. In 1787, the Northwest Territory made slavery illegal and the US Constitution states that congress could no longer ban the trade of slaves until 1808 (Brunner).
we as human beings need to implement a plan to stop trafficking of humans. In addition we need to provide help to people who have been trafficked. Finally it's important to inform every American and even more important to inform the leaders of our country about this awful crime. There are many things I will address in section one of my paper on human trafficking. First, will be how human trafficking works.
Traffickers cannot be identified as a single type of person or image. Anyone could be a predator when it comes to human trafficking. This is why one must always be prepared for any situation that could arise. Education and an increase in laws with recovery actions are only the beginning to this cure. Most laws are for the safety and protection of the victims.
Slavery began in North America in 1619 at Jamestown Virginia. The beginning of the slave trade between Britain’s American colonies and Africa was in 1636. From the beginning some white colonists’ were uncomfortable with the notation of slavery. In 1789 the colonies replaced the Articles of Confederation with the new Constitution. The Constitution however made no specific mention of slavery, but it provided for the return of fugitives, and allowed each slave to be counted as three fifths a person for the purpose of determining population and representation in the House of Representatives.
As time passed slavery started to take hold on the American colonies, and in 1670 tobacco growing really started to take over and became a big export of the colonies. Slavery didn’t exist in the laws until the 1660s. (The Way we lived 58). In 1670 the House of Burgess stated “all slaves not being christened imported into the colony by shipping shall be slaves for life,” similar servants that “shall come by land” would serve for a term of three to four years. (Norton 72).
The first edge of the sword was the issue of religious and political doctrines against the forced labor and involuntary servitude of slavery. The other edge of the sword was the need for cheap labor to perform the increased and back breaking labor needed to harvest cotton and tobacco, the largest of the cash crops. The matter of slavery wasn’t a new concept to the American continent: • Slavery was first introduced at Jamestown in 1619 • Slaves were used in all of the original thirteen colonies • Importation of slaves into the United States was banned in 1808, yet slave populations grew significantly until 1861. • Slavery was not outlawed in all Northern states until after the War. • In 1832 Virginia debated the possibility of a gradual emancipation of slaves starting in 1861.

This 'market' has forced men, women and children from all around the world into sexual exploitation as well as physical exploitation. Although certain countries and international organizations are putting in effort, for public awareness and are trying to stop human trafficking from progressing, a lot more can and needs to be done. Strict international laws and tougher sentences for these offences need to be put in place, with harsher punishments for individuals and groups who violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. According to estimates, human trafficking is the fastest-growing area of organized crime (United Nations, 2002).
