The US Congress has held hearings . . .

We need your help right now to make it grow faster . . .

June 15, 2006

Dear Colleague,

The World Cup started a few days ago in Germany and the campaign to stop forced prostitution there is growing by leaps and bounds.
Yesterday, June 14th, the US House of Representatives held hearings on the issue.
A few days ago the US Government formally complained to the German government.
And the Vatican has issued a complaint to the Germans.
I have gotten word that demonstrations are happening in front of the Germany Embassy in London.
You have already signed the petition, which now numbers almost 20,000 names. We need to make that number grow. We need that number to double, even triple.

You have already signed the petition, but have you sent it around to all your friends? I urge you to do so.

At the end of this letter, I am attaching a copy of our letter from last week. Would you please cut and paste this letter in the body of an email and send it to your entire email address book?

The only way we can have a real impact is if the names on our petition is a big number. Please send this around right now!

Yours sincerely,

Austin Ruse, President, C-FAM

COPY EVERYTHING BELOW THIS LINE AND SEND IT TO YOUR ENTIRE EMAIL ADDRESS BOOK . . . DO IT NOW . . .

There is a young girl in Russia who is about to trafficked into forced prostitution in Germany . . .

There are thousands just like her . . .

You should do something about it . . .

Here's what . . . .

Dear Colleague,

There is a young girl in Russia who is about to answer an ad for a waitress job in Berlin while the World Cup is going on.

When she arrives in Berlin, her "employer" will beat her, steal her passport, chain her to a radiator in a dirty room, and force her into prostitution.

This is happening right now all over Eastern Europe. Young girls are being enticed into forced prostitution in Berlin as the Germans are preparing to host the World Cup.

We must do what we can to stop this outrage.

All told 40,000 prostitutes are about to descend on the World Cup that is just about to begin in Berlin.

I urgently need you to read this email, sign the protest petition and SEND THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

Some have expressed skepticism that this charge is true. How could something so monstrous be true?

Well, here is the lead from a recent story on the BBC:

"From the outside, it looks like an ordinary motel that you would find on the edge of a motorway. But as you walk into the Artemis, a few scantily clad women who are standing near the main entrance provide and obvious sign that there is more on offer here.

"Artemis is one of Germany's largest brothels. It opened recently, just in time for the World Cup. It is a short bus ride from Berlin's Olympic stadium, where many of the games, and the final, will be played" (May 15, 2006, BBC)

There it is.

One of our Friday Fax readers called the German Embassy in Canada and the diplomat who spoke admitted the charges that thousands of prostitutes are descending on Berlin and that special brothels have been built. Some are no more than one room sheds.

So, here is our question. What is moral and decent about that? And then the question becomes; how many of these women are being forced into prostitution. Those who are experts in human trafficking say that legal prostitution is a magnet for human traffickers and a magnet for forced prostitution.

We must do something about this.

This is one of the largest and most important sporting events in the world and the German government is colluding in sullying the reputation of this sport of their people. Moreover, the German government is colluding in the inevitable trafficking of human flesh for the sexual pleasure of rowdy drunks.

We must do something about this. Here is what you and your family and friends can do.

First, go to http://www.c-fam.org/stopwcpro.htm and sign the petition. At our site you can also read more about the horrific state of human trafficking . . . of women and even children. Sign the petition!

Second, SEND THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. WE MUST GET 50,000+ NAMES TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE GERMAN GOVERNMENT.

We will present this petition, signed by thousands from all over the world, to the German Mission to the United Nations, the Germany Embassy in Washington DC, the Office of the Chancellor of Germany, and to our pro-family friends in the German Parliament so they can initiate a resolution condemning the tragedy that is about to happen in Berlin.

I urge you to act now. Even now, the traffickers are gathering in Berlin. They are setting up shop. Young girls are being beaten. Help them right now by going to http://www.c-fam.org/stopwcpro.htm and signing the petition and then sending this email to everyone you know.

We can and will cause a stink about this. We, along with thousands of others, can raise a holy ruckus but we have to act fast. The World Cup begins in a week and goes for a month.

Act now. Go to http://www.c-fam.org/stopwcpro.htm to sign the petition and send this message to your entire address book.

Yours sincerely,

Austin Ruse, President, C-FAM

PS 15,400 have signed so far. We need 50,000 more and we need it fast. http://www.c-fam.org/stopwcpro.htm

After the Nazi death camps and slave labor, you'd hope Germany's government would know better than to have anything at all to do human trafficking.
