Luxembourg For Freedom – get involved in your local community
While millions of children, women and men live in slavery-like conditions worldwide, modern slavery is also happening in Luxembourg, as highlighted in the first human trafficking report issued by the Consultative Commission on Human Rights (CCDH).
While 880 000 of people are affected by modern slavery all across the European Union, when looking at Luxembourg 79 victims were identified by authorities between 2010 and 2016, out of which 45 people were officially recognised as victims of human trafficking, including primarily young women as well as 11 underage girls. Luxembourg For Freedom is a community-based campaign initiated by Time for Equality to support ILO’s 50ForFreedom movement to end human trafficking and modern slavery. The campaign was launched on the occasion of Diversity Day Letzebuerg 2017.
With “Luxembourg For Freedom” we are asking from all members of our community to get involved by signing up to support www.50forfreedom.org and ask the Luxembourg government to ratify ILO’s Protocol on Forced Labour.
