OSCE Special Representative, at conference in Vienna, links inequality, globalization and trafficking

OSCE (25.06.2013) - The OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings, Maria Grazia Giammarinaro, today discussed financial, social and legal factors related to migration, inequality and trafficking at an OSCE-hosted conference on preventing modern-day slavery.
 
"Globalization has brought about many important innovations, but it has also increased inequalities," Giammarinaro said. "During today's and tomorrow's discussions we will, in particular, focus on inequalities linked with migration and the labour market, that lead to gross violations of people's rights and increase their vulnerabilities to trafficking."
 
The 13th Alliance against Trafficking in Persons Conference brings together more than 300 senior government officials, national anti-trafficking co-ordinators and rapporteurs, representatives from international and non-governmental organizations, law enforcement agencies and trade unions, as well as employers' organizations and migrants' rights groups. Special guests include Jan Eliasson, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Yury Fedotov, Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, Laura Thompson, Deputy Director General of the International Organization for Migration,Sergey Lebedev,  Chair of the Commonwealth of Independent States Executive Committee, and Ihor Prokopchuk, Chairperson of the OSCE Permanent Council.
 
The increasing use of unpaid work to foster the illicit accumulation of wealth, which is at the core of contemporary slavery, will be one of the key topics of the event. The discussion will also shed light on the economic and social costs of contemporary slavery, which are related to corruption, massive tax evasion, disruption of healthy businesses, economic and social instability, and the erosion of the rule of law.
 
"The agenda of this conference reflects the ability and courage of the OSCE, in co-operation with its Alliance partners, to tackle the most difficult, unexplored, and conceptual sides of modern-day slavery, those that pose a real challenge to the anti-trafficking policies of the participating States," Lamberto Zannier, OSCE Secretary General, said in his welcoming speech.
 
Teresa Morais, Portuguese Secretary of State for Parliamentary Affairs and Equality, Douglas Wake, Deputy Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, and Moussa Oumarou, Director of the Governance and Tripartism Department of the International Labour Organization are also among the high-level speakers at the conference.
 
The Alliance against Trafficking in Persons is a broad international forum initiated by the OSCE. It brings together  regional, international and intergovernmental, as well as non-governmental organizations, to jointly prevent and combat human trafficking.

Mounting evidence suggests many-thousands or even tens of thousands of Falung Gong practitioners have been killed for the extraction and sale of their vital organs.

HRWF appearance on NTDTV on 06/06/2013

Falun Gong practitioners today represent the largest group of prisoners of conscience in the world, with hundreds of thousands extra-judicially imprisoned at any given time. Tens of thousands have been tortured in custody as prison guards attempt to force them to recant their beliefs. They are shocked with electric batons, burned, hung from ceilings, and beaten. They are denied adequate nutrition, and force-fed with hot peppers and human excrement. Women are raped, and even children and the elderly are not sparred imprisonment and abuse.

   I’m Kermit O. Blair III, from Panama city, Panama; I need your help since I’m victim of Human Rights violation and high profile corruption from local authorities with the support of wealthy people here who are implicating civilians and non Panamanian citizens to do the same felonies they did in the past and currently, they have implicated at least one embassy member, if not more European Union and International Organizations members; they´ve implicated members of Catholic, Christian, Budist and Islamic Congregations, there´s no way for me to request for a legal inquiry to start or to request for International Organizations support here; they have:
1- Obstructed Laws by implicating people from different genders, beleives, ages, citizenship, sexual preferences, up to a point in which Justice access its a mere farytale; 
2- Hindering means I might use to defend myself and request help to international and embassies here, by the use of slyness and different forms of manipulation techniques; 
3- They are committing fraud to several local and overseas companies and artist by introducing someone else as me, my relatives, love one or friend; 
4-  Receiving International Organizations support by using people protected by International Laws: homosexuals, children, women, elder and mentally ill people, to: instigate, incriminate, perpetrate, hide or launder funds;
5- Gain impunity, by using local and International Laws itself.
6- Rename the felony with a power word that can be: "justice" freedom", "democracy" "divine punishment"
My G-plus profile has information about my issue, I´ve posted legal documents too, to prove I´m single, I´ve not been prosecuted nor deported for a felony; information its posted in paintings comment field, link its: https://plus.google.com/u/0/108652352947462347361/posts
I have no mean to request legal assistance here since there are a huge amount of lawyers and judges implicated; there are local authorities in charge of investigating; they are all looking for ways to incriminate me to neutralize me, since they have been committing fraud; whenever I sent this type of help request, unknown people starts going to same places I´m at, to confuse things up; I´m not expecting you to beleive me; all we are requesting, is for United Nations Conventions Against Corruption, Universal Human Rights Declaration, Laws posted in Panamanian Constitution, Panamanian Penal and civil codes, among other local and International Laws be followed; our life are in danger because of this; please help.
