00:00:38 SOUNDBITE (in English) by Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs: As you know, we are here today to announce the launch of the Global Alliance against Child Abuse Online. And we do that because we know that we need to do more to fight against this horrible crime. Child sexual abuse material circulates easily across borders by different channels on the Internet. Global efforts to reduce the circulation are still insufficient. Only a fraction of the material is taking down and frequently it reappears again. And one the picture has been posted a child abuse image can remains there forever. And every time someone is looking at it that child is abused again and again and again. 00:00:40
