The United Nations launched a Global Plan of Action against human trafficking yesterday. What really got my attention, however, is this remark by General Assembly President Ali Treki (emphasis added):
“As this heinous crime flourishes, thousands of men, women and children are robbed of their safety, their freedom and their dignity. Human trafficking devastates families and tears communities apart. When the history of this horror calls, we cannot let this period be remembered as one in which the global community knew but did not act.”
