Take Action! Petition for the closure of the Angeles prostitution slave camps

by Charles W. Johnson Thursday, Oct. 11, 2001 at 11:59 PM

This is a worldwide petition calling on the Philippine government to close the prostitution slave camps of Angeles, Philippines. We are counting on you to spread the word - please pass this notice on to friends, family, fellow activists, and post it on independent media centers, bulletin boards, and listservs!

This is a worldwide petition calling on the Philippine government to close the prostitution slave camps of Angeles, Philippines.

A woman or child is raped or killed on average every six seconds in Angeles City, Philippines.

An estimated 150,000 girls work in Angeles City, Philippines as prostitutes, of that about 30,000 are girls as young as six years of age. Despite the fact that prostitution is illegal in Angeles not one person has been convicted of this crime.

The prostitution trade is controlled by foreign gangs who rake in millions while the girls suffer on a bowl of rice a day. Young girls are forced to work up to twenty hours a day and are expected to sevice up to 100 customers a week. Most of the gangs that run the prostitution trade are foreigners. They pay off corrupt police, military and city hall officials. The girls are locked away to sleep watched over by armed security gaurds who carry batons, electric prods and shotguns.

For more information, http://www.petitiononline.com/44441212/petition.html">view the petition online at http://www.petitiononline.com/44441212/petition.html, and sign it to demand that the Phillippine government take responsibility to stop the brutal sexual enslavement of women and girls.
