Meanwhile, Minister within the Ministry of Natural Resources, Ms. Simona Broomes in her remarks recounted some of her chilling experiences in trying to rescue victims of trafficking during her tenure as Head of the Guyana Women Miner's Association (GWMA).
She also spoke of the four 'Ps' in trafficking; Protection, Prevention, Partnership and Prosecution and said that, "prevention and partnership are two fundamental pillars that [mines and forestry officers] can contribute to...because the same regulation and the same Act that governs the sector, makes provision for [them] to do so."

Simona Broomes
[Categories: 2013 TIP Heroes, Advocate, Forced Labor (Women), Sex Trafficking, International, Guyana] Simona Broomes is a courageous leader in assisting human trafficking victims and raising awareness about human trafficking in Guyana. After 25 years as a miner, in 2012 she established the Guyana Women Miners Organization (GWMO), a volunteer membership and advocacy organization, to empower women miners and address the economic discrimination and physical intimidation that women miners face. The GWMO is the first organization of its kind in Guyana comprising women miners advocating on a cross-section of social and economic issues. Ms. Broomes has worked relentlessly to engage the government, the international community and the media to raise public awareness about human trafficking, identify traffickers, promote access to victim care in remote mining communities, improve the law enforcement response, and increase job training for women in mining. In April, Ms. Broomes was physically assaulted by traffickers while rescuing victims. Despite the dangers of retaliation, however, she has assisted several victims, and GWMO members have temporary housed survivors before transporting them from remote areas to government care and law enforcement officials in the capital. Under her dynamic leadership, the GWMO and its 440 members have become undeniably powerful anti-trafficking advocates and a recognized force in combating human trafficking while promoting equality and economic opportunities for women in Guyana.
