Anti-Slavery Event on the Green at Chichester Cathedral...

Anti-Slavery Day, on Friday 18th October 2013, starts off a three-day event on Chichester Cathedral Green raising awareness of human trafficking.

A GIFT Box full of promises of good wages and a better future for struggling families will be in place on the Green.  The box symbolises the false promises human traffickers use to lure their victims and trap them in modern-day slavery.

The event has been organised by ACT (Active Communities against Trafficking) in partnership with LouLou Morris, artist-in-residence at Chichester Cathedral, to tackle the 'hidden problem' of the district.

As well as hosting the GIFT Box, the three-day event will include 'slave-free' chocolate tasting and LouLou will be creating a lipstick fingerprint painting, made with contributions from residents as a sign they want trafficking to stop.

To close the event, thousands of biodegradable 'seeds' will be released from the Cathedral Tower on Sunday 20th October, at 4.30pm.

ACT Co-ordinator Helen Perry said "Our hope is that this event will empower ordinary members of the community to recognise the signs of human trafficking and feel confident to report intelligence to the police."
