Euro 08 Campaign against Trafficking in Women

Prior and during the European soccer championships held in June 2008, we informed a large audience about the trafficking of women specifically for the purpose of prostitution and, committed ourselves to a better victims and witnesses protection program.

Why such a campaign?

What type of campaign was it?

The campaign started in March 2008, continued up until the end of the Euro 08 and finished in September 2008.

Our aim was to draw attention to the largest audience possible, through a spot, the internet website as well as information material. We gathered signatures for our petition to request effective improvements to the protection of victims and witnesses and to increase their rights. On 11th September 2008 the petition was handed in to the authorities with nearly 72,000 signatures.
