Current Projects I Have Started
Im slowly adding all the Philippine charities to Wikipedia. A lack of sources on a lot of charities is making it a bit difficult. Here are some of the articles I have added on Wikipedia and I still need to improve on....
Other Articles I Am Involved With
"I shall be honored to go to jail. Under a dictatorship, the detention cell is a place of honor,"....Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago (Philippines) May 2001.
"How come if it's the rich who protest....it's called democracy? But if it's the poor who go there, it's rebellion?" Joseph Estrada, (Philippines).
"Traffickers prey on the most vulnerable members of our human family, violating their most basic rights, subjecting them to degradation and misery," stated former Secretary of State Colin Powell in presenting the report he said displayed "the resolve of the entire US Government to stop this appalling assault on the dignity of men, women and children."
“Because it's the worst kind of human exploitation imaginable. Can you imagine young children, learning their ABCs or whatever the equivalent is in their language, being used as sexual slaves for predators? It is a sin against humanity, and it is a horrendous crime.”....former Secretary of State Colin Powell.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4038249/
"If you try to stop these human traffickers from selling children....they will kill you" Ning Ning Panaligan (social worker, fields ave, Angeles, Philippines).
"The trafficking in persons is one of the most deplorable ills of human society and that, in the continuing trade in human beings, the hardest-hit victims happen to women and girls - who are the most fragile and vulnerable prey of human traffickers."....Philippine Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Lauro Baja Jr.
"The nature and all its circumstances of this trade are now laid open to us; we can no longer plead ignorance, we cannot evade it...we cannot turn aside."....William Wilberforce's speech to the House of Commons 12th May 1789, in reference to the slave trade.
"I will do my best so that we will be able to provide jobs for our women...so they will not have to resort to this."....President Corazon Aquino in support (Stop Trafficking in Filipinas) efforts.
One of the biggest impediments to anti-trafficking efforts is a lack of understanding of the issue. Trafficking is often entangled with people smuggling, immigration and asylum, prostitution and other forms of organized crime....United Nations.
"There is greatness in You, Take action in a just cause and unleash it, The time is now, the place is here."
This is where I develop my articles before I add them to Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Susanbryce/notepad
Definition of Human Trafficking from the United Nations
Article 3, paragraph (a) of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons defines Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs Elements Of Human Trafficking On the basis of the definition given in the Trafficking in Persons Protocol, it is evident that trafficking in persons has three constituent elements; The Act (What is done) Recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons The Means (How it is done) Threat or use of force, coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or vulnerability, or giving payments or benefits to a person in control of the victim The Purpose (Why it is done) For the purpose of exploitation, which includes exploiting the prostitution of others, sexual exploitation, forced labour, slavery or similar practices and the removal of organs. http://www.unodc.org/unodc/en/human-trafficking/what-is-human-trafficking.html
Wikipedia Policy Discussion
One of the most disappointing things I have discovered here on wikipedia, is that there is no policy in place to deal with psychopathic stalkers. Even more disturbing that I found there is no help or support for the victims. as such, Im interested in developing Wikipedia policy in this area so that a firm policy, set of rules, and guidlines are in place for dealing with psychopathic stalkers on wikipedia. I would be interested in hearing from others who have also been victims of psychopathic stalkers here on wikipedia so that we may start a project group on policy development.

PSAL XXIII A Psalme of Dauid
The Lord is my shepherd, I shal not want. He maketh me to rest in grene pasture, and leadeth me by the stil waters.
He restoreth my soule, and leadeth me in the paths of righteousnes for his Names sake. Yea, though I should walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou doest prepare a table before me in the sight of mine aduersaries : thou doest anoint mine head with oyle, and my cup runneth ouer.
Douteles kindenes, and mercie shal follow me all the dayes of my life, and I shal remaine a long season in the house of the Lord.
– Geneva Bible, 1560 edition.
