ONE BLANKET LOST

by meira asher

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The trafficking of Nigerian girls for prostitution in Spain started in the early 90s, frequently involving long transits in the Algerian and Moroccan deserts. 'One blanket lost', a common expression used by the traffickers, 'mourns' the loss of blankets in which they buried girls who died on the way.

    Erica was the sole surviver from the boat which carried her to Spanish waters. She lost her baby girl and boyfriend at sea, after which she started paying a 42,000 Euro debt to her Madam.
