Hilton Brothels For the Pampered and Privileged Sex Trafficker



When we heard the news about Hilton Hotels being involved in sex trafficking we were flabbergasted. then it hit us, Paris Hilton is one of the family trademarks - sadly she represents the face of abuse. she has abused us over the years in so many ways. so this shouldn't be a suprise afterall. but this is not a stunt - this is a real situation and we all can do something to address it.

After brothels were found in Hilton hotels in Ireland and China, thousands sent letters to the hotel chain in protest, and Hilton acknowledged its need to address the problem of child prostitution. But to date no concrete steps have been taken. By shaming Hilton CEO Nasetta in his own home town with a slew of newspaper ads and calling on him to implement The Code, we could force him and his employees to protect children in the most effective way, worldwide.

Ask Yourself How could such an esteemed chain become embroiled in such a terrible crime ? well that's all public knowlege all over the world now. today we ask you to support our friends at AVAAZ.ORG.  Read http://www.avaaz.org/en/hilton_sign_now/?vl  and Then Sign the Petition against Sex Trafficking.

We've Signed and We Hope you will too







Massive hotel chain, Hilton, could be complicit in sex slavery and the rape trade. Hotels are key sites for this horrific trade but Hilton refuses to sign an international code of conduct on sex trafficking. Let's build a massive petition and deliver it to the Hilton CEO through ads in his home town papers:
It's shocking. Hilton, one of the most renowned hotel chains in the world, could be complicit in child sexual exploitation, in their own facilities!

Hotels are one of the primary places where slave children are sold for sex by brutal pimps. And Hilton has not even signed up to a basic international Code of Conduct that forces hotels to train their staff to detect, report and assist girls and women forced into the sex industry. Hilton's action on this would be huge -- if they signed up to The Code, it would create a network of Hilton employees in 77 countries and 32,000 hotels working against the rape trade of women and children.

There is no time to lose in stopping this terrifying trade. Sign the petition for Hilton to implement The Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children From Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism. When we hit 250,000 signatures, we'll take out ads in major newspapers in McLean, Virginia - the city where Hilton CEO Chris Nassetta lives and works:

The ECPAT Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism gets hotels to train their staff to recognize victims of the rape trade and underage prostitution, educate their guests about the dangers of sex tourism, liaise with local law enforcement and advocate for victim rights. It works by creating a first line of defense against sex trafficking around the world. To date, The Code affects 30 million tourists a year - vastly increasing the chances of arresting those trafficking girls and helping those trapped in the trade.

After brothels were found in Hilton hotels in Ireland and China, thousands sent letters to the hotel chain in protest, and Hilton acknowledged its need to address the problem of child prostitution. But to date no concrete steps have been taken. By shaming Hilton CEO Nasetta in his own home town with a slew of newspaper ads and calling on him to implement The Code, we could force him and his employees to protect children in the most effective way, worldwide.

At some point in our lives many of us will visit a hotel - which of us would feel comfortable staying in a room where, close by, underage girls are being sold to men and forced to have sex? Sexual tourism that exploits women and girls benefits from hotel staff who look the other way or get a pay off to turn a blind eye. We need hotels to have a zero tolerance policy towards child sexual exploitation in their facilities.

To date, more than 900 companies across the world, including the Radisson and Country Inn Suites hotel, have signed The Code. Hilton is under pressure to join them. Click below to urge Hilton to join in the fight against sex trafficking:

Every day, hundreds of girls around the world are forced into sexual slavery. Our global call for accountability and training in the world’s largest hotel chain can make a huge dent in this vile trade.

With hope,

Alice, Emma, Graziela, Ricken and the rest of the Avaaz team
