Another WIN Against Trafficking/Enslavement #Repost

This is huge! Thailand has shut down Pornhub for violating their Computer Crimes Act, and those who visit the site are now greeted with a notice of suspension. In explaining the decision, the country's digital minister pointed to other countries that have banned the website and to organized groups (e.g. Traffickinghub!) who've demanded it to be shut down because the site supports human trafficking and demeans women.
Our movement also gained massive visibility in the country as Thai news outlets, including Thai PBS, talked about the Traffickinghub campaign, and aired clips from our animated video.
This breakthrough is a big deal for two reasons. First, Bangkok, Thailand is Pornhub's tenth largest customer base, ranking up there with New York City, Paris, London, and Los Angeles.
Second, Thailand is a sex tourism hot spot and a place where vulnerable young teen girls (and boys) are trafficked and pulled into prostitution just to survive. Videos of these girls have been uploaded to Exploited Teens Asia, a popular Pornhub partner channel. This country-wide ban will now make it harder for predators in Thailand to upload this kind of content to the world via Pornhub. Click the link in our bio to get the full story. #Thailand
