We are proud sponsor of the NGO “Free the Slaves”

 

 

All of us fighting counterfeits are contributing to a safer world – preventing potentially dangerous products to reach the market. But there are many dark sides of counterfeiting, some maybe less known and obvious than others, like Slavery & Trafficking. In the year of 2019 it is of course a disgrace that millions of people are still in slavery.

In the counterfeiting industry, slavery and child labour is very common. We’ve heard about people being chained to sewing machines in highly dangerous environments and we also know that counterfeits funds the trafficking of drugs, people, sex and wildlife. Therefore we have chosen to partner with the organization Free The Slaves to help raise awareness and money.

Fighting for Freedom

Free the Slaves was born in the early days of the new millennium, dedicated to alerting the world about slavery’s global comeback and to catalyze a resurgence of the abolition movement.

Slavery has been outlawed everywhere, but it has not been eradicated. Free the Slaves exists to help finish the work that earlier generations of abolitionists started.

We help those in slavery escape the brutality of bondage. We help prevent others from becoming trapped by traffickers. We help officials bring slave holders to justice. We help survivors restore their dignity, rebuild their lives, and reclaim the future for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Slavery will end when businesses clean up their supply chains and consumers demand slavery-free products, when governments and international institutions toughen enforcement and fund anti-slavery work worldwide, and when activists and advocates educate the vulnerable about their rights and empower those in slavery to take a stand for freedom.

Free the Slaves is building a world without slavery by demonstrating that ending slavery is possible.
