The White March in Marrakesh is planned to take place during July 4th 2009. It will be in the form of Music Festival and with the help of local and international artists we plan to send a strong message of hope to the abused Children of Morocco.
It is also the Intention of SOS Morocco to attract tourism to Morocco that would fuel the local economy with healthy income contradictory to sex tourism.
While much of the initial international attention on sex tourism of children focused on Thailand and other countries of Southeast Asia, Morocco has become a favorite destination where economic difficulties contributes to the alarming growth of this industry. A group of concerned Moroccans and Morocco lovers, united to say “No to Children Sex Tourism in Morocco”.
We hope to attract the international attention and appeal to the the purest level of the human human being hoping to stop the individuals who partake in Moroccan sex tourism
We must stress the importance of bringing the atrocious act of Sex Tourism and exploitation of children in Morocco to an end.
Child Sex Tourism is a taboo subject in most societies especially the most conservative ones where shame and dishonor is highly regarded. It does however affect all societies regardless of gender, race or religion.
Why Does Child Sex Abuse Occur and what we are doing about it?
Children will continue to be victimized by these sexual predators for many reasons including: Anonymity, Availability, Affordability, Lack of child-protection laws in foreign countries and Low risk of detection.
Preparation are on the way for the Marrakesh 2009 White March. If you are a FNP Organization, NGO, Singer or Band; We need your support.
