The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) has documented gross human rights violations and serious illegal fishing offences aboard the Taiwanese Fuh Sheng 11. Crew members told EJF of beatings from the captain, 22-hour working days and serious injuries to crew working in dangerous conditions. They also reported that the vessel had illegally finned sharks, including endangered hammerheads.
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.
This award-winning film by EJF documents how at the forefront of global cotton production, Uzbekistan's human rights and environmental record lags far behind the rest of the world.
With millions of people forced to move each year by rapid-onset climate-related hazards and slow onset environmental degradation, social wellbeing, human rights, economies and even state stability are at risk.
