Human trafficking in France
France is a destination country for men, women, and children from Eastern Europe, West Africa, and Asia, as well as the Caribbean and Brazil, subjected to trafficking in persons, specifically forced prostitution and forced labor. Women and children, many from Africa, continued to be subjected to forced domestic servitude. Often their “employers” are diplomats who enjoy diplomatic immunity from prosecution, including those from Saudi Arabia. Reportedly men from North Africa are subjected to forced labor in the agricultural and construction sectors in southern France. The Government of France estimates that the majority of the 18,000 women in France’s commercial sex trade are likely forced into prostitution. It also estimates a significant number of children in France are victims of forced prostitution, primarily from Romania, West Africa, and North Africa. Romani and other unaccompanied minors in France continued to be vulnerable to forced begging. There were reportedly six French women subjected to forced prostitution in Luxembourg in 2009.

Mass surveillance

Mass surveillance is the intricate surveillance of an entire or a substantial fraction of a population.[1] The surveillance is often carried out by governments or governmental organisations, but may also be carried out by corporations, either on behalf of governments or at their own initiative. Depending on each nation's laws and judicial systems, the legality of and the permission required to engage in mass surveillance varies.
Mass surveillance has often been cited as necessary to fight terrorism, to prevent social unrest, to protect national security, to fight child pornography and protect children. Conversely, mass surveillance has equally as often been criticized for violating privacy rights, limiting civil and political rights and freedoms, and being illegal under some legal or constitutional systems. There is a fear that increasing mass surveillance will ultimately lead to a totalitarian state where political dissent is undermined byCOINTELPRO-like programs. Such a state may also be referred to as a surveillance state or an electronic police state.

Deportations of immigrants by the thousands continue in Europe's most riotous country, turned up in 2012 6,000 undocumented immigrants, 1,500 of which were arrested and sent to detention centers to await deportation. Amnesty International called Greece's deportation tactics "deeply alarming" in April.
Greek authorities are calling the influx of foreigners an "invasion," and Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias blamed immigrants for bringing the country to the "brink of collapse," reported the Daily Mail.
“Greece has the right to enforce its immigration laws, and after a fair process, to deport people with no legal basis to stay in the country," said Benjamin Ward, deputy director of the Europe and Central Asia division at Human Rights Watch, in a statement in August. “But it doesn't have the right to treat people like criminals or to presume irregular immigration status just because of their race or ethnicity.”
The police have been accused numerous times by rights groups for targeting immigrants and being heavy-handed with protesters and undocumented people who are HIV positive. Not to mention, immigration centers are rife with abuses, according to a 2011 report by HRW called "The EU's Dirty Hands."

As a large source of sex trafficking and human trafficking, Bulgaria hasn't cracked down as much as it should on organized crime and trading in people. The US State Department's annual Trafficking in Persons report says that although there have been efforts to stop sex slavery and human trafficking, "The Government of Bulgaria does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking."
The country's own National Committee for the Fight against Human Trafficking admits that Bulgaria is one of the EU's top offenders in this area. International protest group FEMEN, which attempts to call attention to the problem of sex trafficking, staged one of thei
