Posted:Genuine good cause, no spam (dont need to enter your email address if you dont want), worth a minute of your time

The innocent victims of Internet child abuse cannot speak for themselves.

But you can.

The brutal facts below speak for themselves:

There are more than 100,000 child pornography sites on the Internet.

19% of Paedophiles have pornographic images of children 3 years and younger.

Up to 20,000 children are being abused online everyday.

Online child pornography generated over US$20 billion last year 7 times more than the entire online music industry.

5 new children are abused online every week.

With your help, we can eradicate this evil trade.

We do not need your money.

We need you to light a candle of support <http://www.lightamillioncandles.com>.

We're aiming to light at least One Million Candles by December 31, 2006.

This petition will be used to encourage governments, politicians, financial institutions, payment organisations, Internet service providers, technology companies and law enforcement agencies to eradicate the commercial viability of online child abuse.

They have the power to work together. You have the power to get them to take action.

Please light your candle at lightamillioncandles.com <http://www.lightamillioncandles.com> or send an email of support to light@lightamillioncandles.com.

Together, we can destroy the commercial viability of Internet child abuse sites that are destroying the lives of innocent children.

If you do not mind, I will send this around to my friends and family, but will wait for your response. For, I don't know if I should be the one spreading it, or even taking any credit.

Thank you again hug for your generousity and courtesy!

Posted:ditto I'm happy to send this around too if you're happy for me to do so. Nothing makes me more angry and upset than people who take pleasure in hurting children. It makes me feel sick thinking about it.

19% of online pornography images are of children three years-of-age or younger.

I'm not believing this. I can believe that 19% of *CHILD* pornography images are of children 3 or under, but not 19% of *ALL* porn.

Posted:The site says that 19% of Paedophiles have pornographic images of children 3 years and younger. (a big difference to .Morph.'s statement) None the less there should be NO pornographic pictures of children.
