Death of a 12-year old girl
Child Exploitation in Brazil
How is Cuba responding to this issue?
Cuba is making no effort to stop or decrease the demand for sex and they keep prostituting children. This country does not support human rights and "resists discussion of issues that might suggest weaknesses in the governing and social system."
However, the National Action Plan for Children and Adolescents sets specific goals and provides implementation guidance on protecting the rights of children and preventing child labor, prostitution, and trafficking.
Human trafficking violates human rights because according to the UDHR Article, everyone has the right to life and to live in freedom and safety. It also states that no one has the right to treat you as a slave nor should you make anyone your slave. No one has the right to hurt you or to torture you.
UDHR Article
The UDHR is a declaration adopted by the United Nations that states the basic rights and freedoms to which all human beings are entitled to.
"62% are living below the poverty line"
Chunks of Brazilian children and women forced into prostitution

Cuba's Sex Market
Tourism is one of the main sources of revenue for the island
Poor population and wealthy tourists create the prime conditions for sex tourism

Lilian Ramírez Espinosa, had been prostituting herself for about six months. She got picked up near a school for a sex party, and according to a video, she blacked out while having sex with a Cuban man in his 20's. The customers thought she had died and were afraid of taking her to the hospital, so they put her in the trunk and dropped her off in the suburbs of Bayamo. The sex offenders lied, due to their fear of the Cuban authorities, where they say, "I am very much afraid of the Cuban authorities because they can do anything here — make up evidence, erase evidence, erase anything.”
Julianne's Story
In a video documentary, Children For Sale-Brazil, Julianne says, “I met a guy. I was 12. He was over 60. He was my friend. He gave me money. I didn’t need to do anything with him, but after awhile I was with him at a motel. If I didn’t see him after, he would take me to a motel, beat me, and wouldn’t give me anything. Any men could touch me and I couldn’t say no."
How is Brazil responding to this issue?
The Brazilian police refer child sex trafficking victims to the government-run specialized social service centers for care, where they can be referred to legal and health services and offered temporary shelter for 24 hours, after which the children are referred to families or to an alternate shelter.
The Ministry of Social Development provides shelter, counseling, and medical aid to women for victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
However, Brazil still violates human rights and is a top human trafficking country
