From June 9 - July 9, 2006, just a few weeks from now, 12 German cities will host the world soccer championship World Cup Games. Approximately 3 million soccer fans - mostly men - will attend. With official support from the German government, up to 40,000 young women will be "imported" from Central and Eastern Europe into Germany to "sexually service" the men.
These women come from desperately poor circumstances. According to reports, most will not speak German. Most are being "sex trafficked" against their wills. They are told that they are going to be models, waitresses, or some other harmless occupation. Many will be brutally assaulted by intoxicated fans.
It is estimated that as many as 30% of the soccer fans will visit prostitutes at least once. Women trafficked as sex slaves to the World Cup in Germany DO NOT DESERVE to be exploited and forced to lead a life of misery to satisfy the sexual appetites of soccer fans. This is an organized, government sponsored massive assault on women’s rights for entertainment.
What makes this crime particularly appalling is the open support it is receiving from the German government. Prostitution is legal in Germany, but their legal red light districts will be too small for the thousands of sport/sex tourists attending the World Cup games. The German sex industry has constructed a massive prostitution complex for the "booming business" expected during the games.
They have already built a mega brothel in Berlin, right next to the main World Cup venue to accommodate 650 male clients. Wooden "sex huts" called "performance boxes" that look like toilets have been built in fenced-in areas the size of a football field, with condoms, showers and parking for the buyers and a special focus on protecting their "anonymity." Please consider the consequences of this mass exploitation & sign the petition. PLEASE do it now - the World Cup games will begin just a few weeks from today.
THEN PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS EMAIL. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF THINKING SOMEONE ELSE WILL "TAKE CARE OF THIS PROBLEM."
Your voice will make a difference as part of a final petition to the German government containing MILLIONS OF NAMES from around the world. And that’s the kind of massive effort it will take to prevent this crime against 40,000 young women subjected to human rights violations in the form of mass prostitution.
