Labour MP Dr Denis MacShane at the tomb of William Wilberforce in Westminster Abbey.."If Wilberforce were alive today I believe he would be a giant Parliamentary champion to abolish sex trafficking, which is one of the worst forms of modern slavery. .I don't like moralising, preaching or pretending to be holier than thou. But until demand is reduced and the men - not the women - are branded as the criminal accomplices of the human traffic industry, alongside the pimps and brothel-keepers, this form of slavery will continue to grow.".Today in the UK, an estimated 5,000 people are enslaved as a result of human trafficking for forced labour and sexual exploitation. These portraits are just some of the people who are working to stop this trafficking in human beings ? the modern-day abolitionists.
