‘’….patriotism will always be a virtue among oppressed peoples, because it will at all times mean love of justice, of liberty, of personal dignity.’’ – Jose Rizal

Every human being is entitled to human rights such as right to live and exist, right to freedom, freedom from exploitation, equality before law, to have adequate standard of living etc. As an individual, he has a right to life and right to a decent living. 

According to the IACAT, the Philippines is known to be a source and destination country for human trafficking.

Human Trafficking is a very common dilemma, an increasing attention that has started over the past decades. It is known for its abusive actions especially on women and children by means of threatening, or by use of force, of fraud, by controlling over another person for the purpose of exploitation. Half the world is that of women and yet the violence against them may be the most pervasive and least recognized human rights abuse in the world. 

In 2012, a DSWD data stated that there were 1,376 individual-victims of various kinds of trafficking nationwide.

For the prosperity and happiness of human beings every nation must create such conditions in which the Human Rights are ensured to its citizens. We are lucky. We have democracy.

Combating the distribution side is important and must be addressed properly, but that will not end the modern day slave trade in the Philippines. But working to combat end trafficking before the victims are abused does. That must be our collective focus in this moment: Ending the practice before it has a chance to begin.
