So far, more than two million people from 192 countries have signed a petition calling on governments worldwide to shut down Porn Hub, a company that has been caught posting footage of trafficked women and minors on its website.

Jake Roberson of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) tells OneNewsNow Thailand, which has its own problem with trafficking, has banned Porn Hub.

"This represents a small step in impacting the direction of the bottom line of the company … that literally is designed and set up to monetize and profit from this type of abuse," Robertson offers.

He insists it is a global problem that each country needs to deal with in a similar fashion.

"There is value in Thailand and other individual governments recognizing and taking steps in the right direction," the NCOSE spokesman recognizes, "but it does have to be a global movement to hold this company accountable and to say, 'We're not going to stand by as these human rights abuses happen.'"

Roberson suggests the people in the 192 countries who signed the petition should take further action by contacting government officials in their respective nations and urging them to shut down Porn Hub.
