The Academy Awards took place night and it was such a great night. In honour of the night istoptraffic.com created a video of the 3rd Annual Exploitation Awards. Note: this is not a criticism of the Academy Awards at all, don’t interpret it that way. It is a criticism of global human trafficking and our attitudes towards it. Human trafficking will be the number 1 crime internationally by 2010.
Here’s an idea of what a human traffickers acceptance speech might be like. Can we tolerate this? Sure, it’s a spoof. But how far off is our society from almost condoning human trafficking, because we can choose to ignore it. Rant over.
I’ll post about the actual Academy Awards tomorrow, which is always a night that fills me with hope and shows dreams can come true.
