Thailand's seafood exports are the third most valuable in the world, supplying markets in the US, Europe and Asia but far from the attention of consumers vulnerable migrants in search of a better future are being trafficked, exploited, abused and even murdered aboard Thai fishing vessels.
EJF is campaigning for the international community to develop a Global Record of fishing vessels to facilitate greater transparency and traceability in the seafood sector enabling better monitoring of fishing activities including the labour conditions of the world's fishing fleets.
Featuring testimonies recorded during investigations in 2012, the film documents examples of hazardous working conditions, the use of child labour, bonded labour, withholding of pay, excessively low wages, health and safety violations, restricted union activities, verbal abuse and excessive hours.
EJF is advocating for the Bangladeshi Government, the international community and retailers to work together to stop these abuses.
The dance of death must end. Trapped in its hostile environment an animal will die. It will try to leave. It will leave but there is nowhere to go. Lily dances, trapped in a macabre and beautiful nightmare, swept up in a fight against pain, suffering, greed and lies.
RED SHOES is a dance for truth, for freedom and for life. We must stop climate change to avoid our total catastrophe.
