‘The Inconvenient Truths’ Pacific Trafficking in Persons Forum was a first for me. It was the first time I had ever attended a gathering specifically addressing the issue of Trafficking in Persons in the Pacific. It was a first for me to hear speakers from a variety of countries and vantage points surrounding this important subject. It was the first time I have stopped to consider the plight of those who work on the fishing boats that operate within New Zealand waters … and make that connection with trafficking in persons.
