The petition text:
Dear David Cameron and Nick Clegg,
Please guarantee the UK government opts in to the EU Directive on Human Trafficking to ensure that trafficking into and within the EU stops and that those involved are properly prosecuted.
Please make sure that the UK opts in to new rules to help stop trafficking.

Your comments on this campaign
The Government has not signed up to new rules which aim at preventing human trafficking in the EU. These new guidelines would work towards making sure EU countries work together to prevent trafficking, ensuring successful prosecution and making sure victims of trafficking are properly looked after.
We can't afford to miss out on this chance to make the fight against trafficking more effective. The Government can't be allowed to lose its nerve on this. We've teamed up with Anti-Slavery International, the Independent on Sunday and ECPAT UK to convince the Coalition not to opt out of the new rules.
If thousands of us sign a petition to David Cameron and Nick Clegg, we can persuade them to make the right decision and ensure the coalition does not wriggle out of signing up to these new rules.
Please sign the petition now, then ask your friends to get involved too.
