Snopes Has Written An Article About Prostitutes Being Trafficked For The Super Bowl

5 posts in this topic

Interesting - thanks! The report quoted in the Snopes piece is a 75-page document from the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW), "...an Alliance of  more than 100 non-governmental organisations from Africa, Asia, Europe, LAC and North America."

 

The Executive Summary states:

"There is a very wide discrepancy between claims that are made prior to large sporting

events and the actual number of trafficking cases found. There is no evidence that large

sporting events cause an increase in trafficking for prostitution."

All right on campaigns apply the rule of ten. "only one in ten cases are reported" etc. It is the only way to make up then numbers to prove their theories.

Have skimmed through that report and it looks to be very close to the truth.   Some of the graphics on page 57 are puzzling though !
