VIDEO “Prostitutes in Italy: how the trafficking of women into prostitution works” by Saverio Tommasi
In this video, Saverio Tommasi, a journalist for the Fanpage newspaper, describes human trafficking and the work On the Road does every day in a sensitive and attentive way.
Do you know when we drive through those dimly lit suburban streets full of prostitutes? Those prostitutes are women, often very young and sometimes underage. They are women who decided to come to Italy to improve their lives, and unfortunately found themselves victims of human trafficking, victims of human body traffickers. They are forced to repay a huge debt by selling sexual services for ten or twenty euros to clients as a form of repayment of the tribal oath. In order to explain it to you, let me start at the beginning. – Saverio Tommasi
