End sponsorship of "Walking Street" red light district in Pattaya, Thailand

Samsung is the corporate sponsor (they have a huge sign boasting of this) of Walking Street in Pattaya, Thailand. Pattaya is the sex tourism capital of the world. It's also the sex slavery/child sex trafficking capital of the world. Samsung is directly funding and promoting the underground (and illegal in Thailand) sex trade via their sponsorship of Walking Street. Walking Street is not a happy place. The girls who work there are very often under 18 and almost none are there of their own choice. Tell Samsung to stop sponsoring slavery and oppression.

Letter to
Corporate PR Office Samsung
End sponsorship of "Walking Street" red light district in Pattaya, Thailand.
Samsung's ongoing sponsorship of Walking Street is a shameful endorsement of slavery and oppression. Every visitor to Pattaya sees the enormous Samsung sign over the entrance to the red light district. Girls, women, and boys are kept in brothels as slaves in the vast networks of human traffickers. Your support helps to keep them there and is an endorsement of the cruel and inhumane tactics of pimps and Mama-Sans to make these slaves have sex with tourists, often for little or no money. End this shameful practice. Until you do, the people who have signed this petition will not buy your products and will continue to spread the word about your evil practices.
