"Catechism of the Catholic Church The seventh commandment forbids acts or enterprises that for any reason - selsh or ideological, commercial, or totalitarian—lead to the enslavement of human beings, to their being bought, sold and exchanged like mer- chandise, in disregard for their personal dignity. It is a sin against the dignity of persons and their fundamental rights to reduce them by violence to their productive value or to a source of prot. St. Paul directed a Christian master to treat his Christian slave “no longer as a slave but more than a slave, as a beloved brother, . . . both in the esh and in the Lord.”" Vatican Council II
"…Whatever insults human dignity, such as subhuman living conditions, arbitrary imprisonment, deportation, slavery, prostitution, the selling of women and children; as well as disgraceful working conditions, where men are treated as mere tools for prot, rather than as free and responsible persons; all these things and others of their like are infamies indeed. They poison human society, but they do more harm to those who practice them than those who suffer from the injury. Moreover, they are supreme dishonor to the Creator."
—Gaudium et Spes, 1965 "One of the recognizable signs of the times today is undoubtedly migration, a phenomenon which during the cen- tury just ended can be said to have taken on structural characteristics, becoming an important factor of the labor market worldwide, a consequence among other things of the enormous drive of globalization.
Naturally in this “sign of the times” various factors play a part. They include both national and international migration, forced and voluntary migration, legal and illegal migration, subject also to the scourge of trafcking in human beings."

—Migrations: A Sign of the Times, World Day for Refugees and Migrants Message, 2006 Though slavery today is unacceptable, centruies ago
it was very common to have many to have slaves In the old testement certain passages sanctioned slavery,
and in the new testament that says slavery was wrong The reality of human trafficking.. Caged Birds
How Demand Creates Sex Slaves
By Marielena Zuniga He wears a clean white shirt, is 40-something and paces outside the massage parlor in a seedier part of Toronto, Canada. He could be any man. A neighbor. A brother. A co-worker.

"Hello, sweetie," the Thai girl greets him from the doorway, as she's been taught. She has a quota to meet. If she doesn't, she'll be beaten or scorched with an iron by the madam running this brothel. Human trafficking: Irina's story Irina was a 16-year-old high school student from the southern Russian Federation when she accepted a family friend's proposal to take a quick trip to the Middle East. The offer of US$ 500 for her help in bringing back merchandise to sell in the Russian Federation seemed lucrative. Irina was introduced to Renat, and within days, she received a passport, a tourist visa and a plane ticket.

ae forced into such hard labour as carrying chuncks of coal from the Brazilian
mining pits, forming bricks in Pakistan for the construction trades, rolling miles of woolen thread onto spools to make hand-knotted carpets in Northern India, harvasting sugar cane in El Salvador using machetes to cut can for nine hours a day in the hot sun, or picking cocoa in Africa's Cote d'Ivoire plantations In Pakistan, 67% of child workers are involved in agriculture, 11% in carpet industry, 5% working in brick kilns, 9% in whole sale and retail trade and 8% in personl services In some cultures slavery is so deeply embedded
within the society that not all slaves try to escape or dream
of gainful employment. Nor are all slave-holders cruel or gun totting tattooed gang memebers
