Blog: Scientology's Measles-Infected Freewinds Takes Refuge on Curacao, an Island Engaged in Sex Trafficking & Forced Human - 2019-05-04
The home port of Scientology's Freewinds cruise ship is Curacao. The island is a sex tourism destination and is home to the Caribbean's largest brothel Campo Alegre. Sex trafficking and forced human labor occur in Curacao and are well documented. Why did Scientology chose such an island as its home port? The answers are in our article.
As reported over the past five years, Curaçao is a transit and destination country for women, children, and men subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor. Vulnerable populations include foreign and Curaçaoan women and girls in unregulated prostitution, as well as migrant workers from other Caribbean countries, South America, India, and China in the construction, landscaping, minimarket, retail, and restaurant industries. Due to the deteriorating situation in Venezuela, legal and illegal migration to Curaçao increased, leaving many vulnerable to trafficking, including women working illegally at bars and brothels.
