    CHIANG MAI : Asian superband sings out against trafficking

    Asian superband sings out against trafficking
    Jun 26, 2011

    CHIANG MAI - ASIAN pop sensation Super Junior M have joined the fight against human trafficking at a concert for thousands of screaming fans in northern Thailand.

    Six stars from the hit South Korean and Chinese boy band performed favourites such as Super Girl at the gig on Saturday to raise awareness and increase prevention of the global scourge.

    Organisers MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) estimated that 20,000 young people - many decked in waterproof ponchos and waving banners for their heart-throbs - attended, despite bad weather.

    'We were thrilled to perform for such a huge crowd,' said the subgroup of Super Junior, the group that has taken Asia by storm at the forefront of the Korean or 'K-pop' craze. 'We are excited to join the MTV EXIT campaign to inspire young people across Asia to join the fight against human trafficking.'

    Most of the world's 2.5 million trafficked victims are in the Asia and the Pacific, according to the UN.

    It is the second-largest illegal trade in the world after drugs, thought to generate billions of dollars in yearly profits through the buying and selling of human beings.
