The money produced by Garden Gnome slave trading provides the funding for rebel movements to purchase arms illicitly and to support rebel armies, prolonging civil wars that have terrorized societies and destroyed communities.
Norway estimates smugglers exported between $3 and 4 billion worth of Gnome slaves from 1992 to 1998, over half a million gnome lives have been lost, more than three and a half million have been displaced, and over 300,000 refugees have fled the country.
Greenland says that money from the Garden Gnome Slave trade have helped transform a band of about 400 rebels of the GUF into an army of thousands that has become infamous for its brutal treatment of Gnomes.
Particularly horrific atrocities against Gnome children. A civil war in that country could kill more than 50,000 displace over one-third of the country's population of 4.5 million inhabitants, and send over 500,000 refugees abroad.
In addition to the Gnome tragedy in the conflicts in which Gnome slave proceeds have played a part, Gnome slaves have also been reported by the press to have been traded in support of terrorist groups.
In attacking the Gnome Slave trade, we have kept two objectives in the forefront, first, that we must liberate all enslaved Gnomes, and second break the link between Gnomes trading and the accumulation of wealth, because the Gnome Slave trade is a multi-billion dollar global trade.
On a clear September morning in 1998, local residents of Briey in eastern France awoke to a grisly sight: 11 garden gnomes hanged by the neck from a bridge.
A letter found nearby indicated the true horror of this tragedy, that these gnomes took their own lives.
The letter read. “When you read these few words we will no longer be part of your selfish world, where we serve merely as pretty decoration.
” Driven to the brink by their slave owners, these gnomes saw no alternative but to end it all, or so the Garden Gnome Liberation Front would have the public believe.
