World day against human trafficking: statement by the President of the Senate, Maria Elisabetta Alberti Casellati

Trafficking in human beings is a heinous crime that must be fought by all means. On the occasion of the World Day, established five years ago by the United Nations, the hope is that soon this drama, which involves women, men and millions of children around the world, will represent only a shame of the past. The declared goal is to eliminate all slavery by 2030. Not only through prevention, but also with the cooperation of all states that care about democracy and freedom. To definitively defeat a nefarious phenomenon that should touch the conscience of every single individual, but above all to eliminate it with the constant commitment of the entire international community. Without distinction and without any form of selfishness, with a solidarity capable of overcoming ideological and cultural barriers.

Violence must always be condemned, even more so when it could have hateful racial motivations. I wish Daisy, Italian record-breaking under 23 record holder, who honors our country in international scenarios, to recover quickly and soon forget this bad experience.
