Timeline: 1400 - 1600 1400's: Human trafficking has been on record for at least 600 years. It began when the Portuguese would enslave Africans and bring them back to Portugal 1500's: Eventually, the British caught on and started trafficking themselves. They enslaved Africans as well and greatly expanded the slave labor business through the plantation colonies. 1600's: Even more countries piled on. Spain, North America, Holland, France, Sweden and Denmark. 1800-1900 and Attempts at Stopping Trafficking In 1807, the British passed a law banning transatlantic slave trade. The U.S. also acted by making all slave trade a crime punishable by death in 1820.

Then, in the early 1900's, white slave traffic emerged as a huge growing force.

WWI derailed the attempts by international groups to stop it. Post WWI League of Nations steps in. For a long time, they gathered information on how many slaves were being purchased, who was disappearing, who the traffickers were.. ect. WWII and after Due to all of the conlficts like WWII, the Vietnam and Korean Wars, and other crises, the fight agaisnt human trafficking had to be put on hold once again... http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/Olh0ueeSqvluzZO http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/t9AqPrqIU1Krmvr http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/SWvzYo5M1PPlWcO http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/0a44FLuAqWV6xkC http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/GTVzT6bqX91BFNE http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/PSOhLtDeviJKX4P http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/XLhy6Ri8auMP74D
