Paedophile’s dream, child’s nightmare
To Justice Ministers, Police Chiefs and Child Protection Chiefs:
As citizens concerned about children’s mental and physical welfare, we call on you to crack down on Webcam Child Sex Tourism. This will require announcing a plan for intercepting potential predators in public chat rooms, initiating prosecutions and challenging intermediaries who enable and profit from this vile trade. We expect you to act fast, decisively and accountably, to prevent more young lives being ruined.

An estimated 750,000 pedophiles are online, but only six men have so far been convicted of paying young people to perform sex acts in front of webcams. Incredible investigative research has lifted the lid on this emerging vile practice, and shown the devastating psychological trauma it inflicts on young minds.
The research and media attention won’t be enough. But if we now call on police and child protection authorities to crack down on the webcam predators, we can ensure that people trying this know they may be caught. Stand with the young victims, to prevent more of them.
