Great news re Hilton Hotels

Hotels are the key location for where children and women are sold into slavery. A campaign targeted at Hilton Hotels to get them to sign up to a code of conduct did not seem to be going places....but slowly momentum has grown. Then an Avaaz campaign was launched - 317,000 Avaazers called on the Hilton CEO to sign a code of conduct on the rape trade or face hard-hitting ads in his hometown. They signed within 24 hours. Now 180,000 hotel employees will be trained to spot and prevent the horror of of sex slavery of women and girls. As someone who worked in their Sydney Hotel many many years ago indeed I am delighted that they have listened.
