New campaign – Stop The Traffik

Stop the people trafficking

Traffik%20barcodeStop The Traffik, a worldwide coalition of organisations fighting against people trafficking, is launching a campaign that aims to raise awareness of a petition against the practice.

The outdoor campaign, which breaks today (Wednesday) in London, depicts a barcode made up of the silhouettes of people. It has the strapline: “People shouldn’t be bought and sold”. It also asks people to sign up to the petition, which the group is hoping will collect 1 million signatures.

The organisation will present the petition to the UN in February. The charity’s strategy builds on the Human Retail idea developed by Leagas Delaney last year.
