2012-07-25-olympicbanner.pngAlthough the Olympic Games often bring a sense of unity, patriotism and heightened national pride, it also causes a rise in human sex trafficking as the market demand for sexual labour increases dramatically. I commend the British Government for the steps they're taking to help tackle human trafficking concerns and applaud them for appointing a police commissioner to deal exclusively with trafficking during the Games. But the sad reality is that women and girls will still be sexually exploited on the streets of London.
