End sex slavery in Melbourne and Sydney

"What happened to us was a nightmare. We worked from 11am to 3 or 4am the next morning, and slept only three or four hours. They treated us like animals. We were sexually abused, we were dragged, we were hit." - one of the victims.

SEX SLAVERY IS HAPPENING RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW IN OUR VERY OWN NEIGHBOURHOODS

Four Corners just revealed vulnerable women are being trapped by ruthless, disgusting crime rings, and forcing them to pay off IMAGINARY “debt” by making them sex slaves.

There are proven links between these brothels and sex slave rings, yet the regulators are doing nothing. One woman said she lived in a nightmare -- she was sexually abused, hit and treated like an animal. Is this what Australia is about? NO.

This is the best chance we have to take the fight to the brothel owners forcing women into sex slavery -- regulators will have to listen to a massive public outcry, and we can put a stop to their horrible business.

The Minister for Justice Brendan O'Connor, the NSW Minister for Planning and Infrastructure Brad Hazzard and Consumer Affairs Victoria have the power to shut these brothels down. We call on you to immediately revoke the licenses for these two brothels found to be involved in the sex slavery trade by Federal Police investigations:

Five Star in Woolloomooloo
Candy Club in Melbourne.

We also call on you to fully investigate those brothels alleged to have links to organised crime such as sex slavery:

Nadira in inner-city Sydney
Regarding House, in Heidelberg, Melbourne
39 Tope Street in South Melbourne

Let's call on the regulators of brothels in Sydney and Victoria to shut down the brothels caught participating in the sex slave trade.

      It's the most shamefull crime from men to women! To damage these women is sick, as some men "think" themselves "more important" then women, and thus have ''the right'' to treat women like this, they only show with this filthy behaviour their inferior mentality.

      If Australian women were allowed to carry concealed firearms, I'm thinking this would be less of a problem. Many of you will disagree, but a dead slaver can't keep slaves.

      Prostitution is as old as the history of mankind and enacted by mutual consent without duress is one thing. Subjugation of a human being is another.

      We need to rescue and protect these women from the animals controlling and abusing them, as well as the animals that use and abuse them. They are on Australian soil, no doubt against their will.

      Australia needs to help these women enjoy the autonomy Australian woman have fought so hard for so they can go home or live here and thrive.

      Isn't that what our ANZACS fought and died for, that we may all live in peace and prosperity.?

      Harsher penalties as in prison 5-10yrs should be automatic for these toe-rags plus loss of assets no matter who's name is on paper.

      Shut these people down and throw them in jail! This is abhorrent.
