End Slavery in Thailand’s Fishing Industry

Target: Police General Adul Saengsiew Kaew, Minister of Labor, Thailand

Goal: Demand fair and safe working conditions for individuals working in Thailand’s fishing industry.

The fishing industry in Thailand is run by human trafficking and slavery. Workers are trafficked from neighboring nations in Southeast Asia, subject to little to no pay, and are not allowed to leave their employers.

There are no legal protections for these workers. They are forbidden from forming unions to protect themselves. Meanwhile, the seafood trade remains one of Thailand’s most lucrative industries.

The nation has been warned by international human rights bodies, but nothing has been done to make a change. Sign the petition to demand that the rights of workers in the fishing and seafood industry be protected and their slavery be brought to an end.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Kaew,

Slavery persists in your nation’s fishing industry. Workers are trafficked from other nations, forbidden from leaving, and given little to no pay. They lose all rights they have as human beings.

Something must be done to protect the workers of your seafood and fishing industries. I demand that you ensure workers’ rights be protected by instating fair wages, safe conditions, and the principles of basic human rights in the workplace.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Between human trafficking and so much animal abuse in Thailand,i would never vacation there. Those people are just sickening.

  2. According to my opinion (with all respect), too many of the Asian country’s inhabitants are greedy and completely irresponsible without a thought and respect of the fellow human bean or animals. Nothing wrong with money, but when the money are in control of the human bean, then it become like obsession and with the risk of insufficient sympathy or empathy to other lifeforms.

  3. The meat industry is inherently cruel. Not only with the immense cruelty and suffering of innocent animals but also terrible working conditions. It would be wise to end such industries. This would lead to a better life for the animals and the people involved (getting other employment).

    Signed & shared

  6. In the land of Buddha and countless temples on every corner – why does abuse of humans and animals exist and persist?

    Is all that “Holier Than Thou” a sham or just plain superstition?
    True believers adhere to teachings, not blindly adore a figure.

    Is Thailand showing its true colors – no different than the Chinese, Koreans, Vietnamese etc, etc,..

  7. It is nothing less than obscene that people are forced to exist like this to increase profits!
