Stop child circus slavery in India

This petition had 443 supporters

As many as 500 children are currently circus slaves in India. Being sent from other countries such as Nepal, most parents are lured into the trap that their child will have a more fufiling life as what, blackmarket child sellers call, "famous performers." With some children being as young as five years old circus slavery is quickly becoming a real issue. The money involved in India's human-trafficking is plenty and as more money becomes involved, so will the people. These children are sold for as low as five dollars and are forced into a life of torture. They are beaten, raped, mauled by the circus animals, forced into marriage, abused and forced to perform daily life-threatening stunts. With child slavery being such an unknown issue not many people or countries really understand what is happening. Children are being treated horribly and now is the time to help!
