Human Trafficking Rally/Protest

Signs and Petition

Signs and Petition

Yesterday I went to the State House where the RI Coalition Against Human Trafficking was holding a rally to support the Anti-Trafficking legislation.  They had a great turn out.  I gave out some postcards and invited some people to my film.

There were people there holding signs “Not for Sale”, and “Stop Selling Children”.  I don’t believe in the death penalty, but if I did, I would reserve the ultimate punishment for the Human Traffickers and/or child molesters.  I can respect people’s opinions, but there is no excuse for Human Trafficking, and I have never met anyone who has even tried to defend this practice.

I am in complete support of the new proposed legislation against Human Trafficking.  However, I do not believe closing the “prostitution loophole” will stop human trafficking.  (There is a difference between prostitution and human trafficking) If you look across the country, every state has prositution laws, and every state also has prostitution.  Our neighboring state Massachusetts has laws against Prostitution and when you look at the Boston Phoenix you see two to  three times the ads for “erotic massage” and “escorts” as compared to the Providence Phoenix.

The issue made the front page of the projo again today.  “A Call to End Human Trafficking” What is interesting is while I was there yesterday, most of the people who were protesting were protesting against the “prostitution loophole”, and if you read the article you will see:

“Two separate bills that would make prostitution a crime, regardless of where it occurs, have also been introduced in the General Assembly. The coalition — which is against prosecuting the prostitutes — has taken no position on those bills.”


it is so exciting…

and I am loving it.  I get to check my email around dinner time every night.  I wish I had more time to be on the computer and read blogs, twitter, and even update this blog, but I am on the road a lot lately.  I am trying to pull this show together, but when I get back in front of the computer, it is always a surprise.  I get emails from Police, Church Organizers, and Sex Worker Organizations.  I love that this film can mean something to some people.  This is the payoff  of making a film.
