    Up to 27 million people are living in slavery around the world, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton estimated as the US unveiled its annual report into human trafficking.
    But the report showed that as governments become more aware of the issue, instigating tough new laws and programs to help victims, progress is being made in wiping out what it called the "scourge of trafficking."
    "The end of legal slavery in the United States and in other countries around the world has not, unfortunately, meant the end of slavery," said Clinton.
    "Today it is estimated as many as 27 million people around the world are victims of modern slavery, what we sometimes call trafficking in persons," she said at the unveiling of the report at the State Department.
    "Those victims of modern slavery are women and men, girls and boys, and their stories remind us of the kind of inhumane treatment we are capable of as human beings," said Clinton.
    "Whatever their background, they are the living, breathing reminders that the work to eradicate slavery remains unfinished."
    As America prepares to mark the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of the emancipation of US slaves, people must reflect on "how much further we have to go to free all these 27 million victims," Clinton added.
    Out of the 185 countries included in the 2012 report, only 33 complied fully with laws in place to end human trafficking, putting them at the top of a four-tier ranking system.

    Code word meaning the other 330 million slaves in amerikkka are accounted for as well.

    Slavery has been presented since the first man wanted rule other men. When I read stuff like this, it always makes me laugh. Government is set up to keep the practice of slavery ALIVE.



    lol


    lol again. CODE WORD: When they say progress is being made to wipe something out, all that means is there are some knuckleheads out there who think they're going to "traffic" on their turf.

    They "say" they're making progress in wiping it out. Then they tell you we know where these "27" millions slave are. Right were they need to be. Let's re-visit this article in 10 years and see if human trafficking is wiped out.

    Slavery does exist and it is ugly. The average age in this country is 11-13 years old
