A V.I.P. (Very Important Petition)

We are delighted that The Body Shop has lost none of its campaigning grit, even though our much-missed friend Anita Roddick is no longer around.  And we've just added our signatures to this important petition.
     The reality of sex trafficking is anything but pretty.  According to the United Nations, it's the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world, with over 1.2 million children and young people trafficked every year.          Commendably, The Body Shop's doing its bit to end this horrific trade, with their campaign to Stop Sex Trafficking of Children & Young People - working alongside ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and the Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes). Now, they're urgently asking for your signature on this petition, too, which will be presented to Downing Street on 30th April.  All you have to do is follow the links below.
     Knowing that Anita would definitely approve...
