As Germany prepares to host soccer's World Cup, the German sex trade is getting ready with new large-scale brothels and is expected to lure women from Eastern European and Third World countries under false pretenses, reports www.solwodi.de.

To counter what she calls the "modern slave trade," Sister Lea Ackermann, S.M.N.D.A., the founder of Solidarity with Women in Distress, has launched "Red Card for Sexual Exploitation at the World Cup." In addition to raising awareness, the campaign will warn women in the countries of origin and provide support for victims of sex trafficking.
