Sex trafficking video to be shown in Barnstaple
A BARNSTAPLE woman who has travelled the world helping victims of sex trafficking is hosting a screening of a ‘groundbreaking’ documentary in Barnstaple.
Carina Friesen, from Pilton, has been working with trafficked girls in Thailand, Amsterdam, India and The Gambia for four years.
She said: “I have ended up hosting a screening here in Barnstaple because I know one of the girls who is interviewed in the documentary who was in prostitution for 30 years.
“You’ll see where slaves are sold - often in developed, affluent countries - where they work, and where they are confined.
“You’ll hear first-hand interviews with real victims and ex-traffickers, along with expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders.

“The thing is many people believe that trafficking happens in far off countries when in fact it is happening on our own doorsteps.”
The documentary will be screened at Grosvenor Church in Barnstaple on June 30 at 7pm, strictly over 18s only.
