Lotta shit

The report of Amnesty International for 2007 shows there’s a whole lotta shit going on, globally. Who would have guessed (them damn human rights)?

My fave quote is

Can we try it again, without to profanity?

Damn, sorry.

Not very pleasant statistics to read, I must say.
A while ago I came across a report on human trafficking by The International League for Human Rights (ILHR claims to be one of the oldest human rights organisations, but obviously it’s not as well known as Amnesty), and Amnesty’s report just corroborates the IRHR’s findings.

2 million people are trafficked every year – the majority women and girls

And this just awful:

At least 1 in 3 women around the world has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime.

Greece is usually reprimanded for receiving trafficking victims. There was a good comic about the mentality of traffickers but it’s in Greek.
