Beatings at gunpoint, slavery, dangerous working conditions and squalid living conditions. These are just a few of the findings from this investigative film by the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) telling the harrowing stories of migrant fishermen working aboard Taiwanese-owned fishing vessels. The film shows that although some new rules have been introduced in Taipei, out at sea human rights abuses and illegal fishing practices continue.
In EJFs Kurzfilm BEYOND BORDERS äußern sich Klima- und Sicherheitsexperten über die Folgen der durch den Klimawandel ausgelösten Migration. In ihren Aussagen zeigt sich die Sorge, dass wir den Klimawandel sehr ernst nehmen und bereits heute aktiv werden müssen. Aufgrund der potenziell hohen Zahl an Klimaflüchtlingen, hat sich EJF das Ziel gesetzt, ihren rechtlichen Schutz sicherzustellen, der heute noch nicht existiert.

Sharks have been on the planet for over 400 million years, long before the first dinosaur emerged on Earth. They have witnessed centuries of the world’s history, but human activity may bring all of this to an end - an entire ancient species facing an early extinction. Around 100 million sharks are killed by humans every single year - the equivalent to approximately 11,415 deaths per hour. EJF is working to protect critical shark species across West Africa and globally.
