I Want a 24-Hour Truce

I want a 24 Hour Truce.

The study found a huge range of exploitation and abuse: children trading sex for food, forced sex, verbal sexual abuse, child prostitution, child pornography, sexual slavery, sexual assault and child trafficking.

“They especially ask us for girls of our age. Often it will be between eight and 10 men who will share two or three girls. When I suggest an older girl, they say that they want a young girl,” a 14-year-old boy who works at a peacekeeping camp in Ivory Coast told the Save the Children research team.

  1. I read that this morning. I need to scream and roar with anguish.

    The SMH is such a cesspool of p()rn and kiddiep()rn already. And then they blithely print that little piece of reality while going all editorial about artistic freedom.

  2. I read this in the paper the other day. I haven’t posted it, or commented on the numerous posts I’ve seen of it until now, because it is just so awful I don’t know how to deal with it.

    I don’t know what to say. On top of it I feel unable to help at all. I’m living in an eight bed dorm room in a hostle in NZ. what can I do from there?

    ugh

  3. nakedthoughts,

    You can post here about it as you’ve done!

    We all need to grip hands with each other and hang on for the ride.

    Our daughters are drowning, having their heads held under the water.
