Brazil Hosts World Congress to Fight Child Sex and Pornography

Not for sale girl Brazil will host the World Congress against sexual exploitation of children and Adolescents in Rio de Janeiro this month from November 25 to November 28. It is anticipated that there will be around 3,500 people attending including official delegations from 150 governments.

This third global Congress will bring governments from around the world seeking answers to many aspects of child sex abuse – an issue which continues to plague all countries. Experts will speak on specific issues such as child trafficking, legal matters, the prostitution of children, internet child pornography and paedophile behaviour.

Unlike other inter-governmental conferences this Congress is unique in having voting representatives from non-governmental organizations, international groups and commercial representatives. A special feature will be the participation of young people in the discussions.

The Congress is sponsored by the government of Brazil, ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography, and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes) International and UNICEF (The United Nations Children's Fund).

"All this may seem distant from New Zealand," said Alan Bell, Director of ECPAT New Zealand, "but is in fact very relevant. New Zealand is not free from such issues and both the government and the general public should be aware of the risks to which New Zealand children are exposed and be alert and active in preventing the escalation of child sexual abuse in our own country."

The New Zealand government approved a national Plan of Action to combat Child Sex Abuse and presented it at the last World Congress (Yokohama 2001) .

The New Zealand government has invited Cindy Kiro the retiring Commissioner for Children to represent its interests at the Congress to be held in Brazil. ECPAT New Zealand has also agreed to provide key politicians with a debriefing on their return to New Zealand.

ECPAT New Zealand will send four representatives to the Congress, two of whom will be speaking at the Forums.

    Corrupt Brazilian Lawyer kidnaps young American citizen
    This is relevant because it once again demonstrates the Brazillian justice system. Sean Goldman was illegally taken to Brazil by his mother four years ago. Brazillian courts refused to honor international treaty, even though Brazil is a signee of the treaty, and return Sean to his home in the United States for a custody HEARING. Now the mother has passed away, but the step father is a rich Brazillian lawyer with powerful connections. Even though the central Brazillian government agency has released a statement that Sean Goldman should be returned to the United States, the local courts and some federal courts have refused to force the step-father to do so. Please visit the website http://bringseanhome.org. Send emails to the many people who can influence this case. Public pressure is needed to fix this injustice.

    an issue which continues to plague all countries
    True but some countries far more than others !
    Brazil in particular !
    A minimum of 250’000 children are involved as per Brazilian Official stats and as much as 500’000 as per some brazilian and foreign NGOs.

    When was the latest big and well mediatized arrests…in Brazil ?
    What was the jail term given by Your World Reknown Courts of Injustice ?

    Total silence….of course…and as usual !

    But World Conferences brings you only a little more tourists and money.

    Writing laws are good only if they are applied.

    Brazil is certainly not a good reference to Fight Child Sex and Pornography !
