The exploitation of enslaved people could be hiding behind the supply of Thai shrimp to supermarkets around the world. Gigantic large-scale retailers - such as Walmart, Carrefour, Costco, Tesco, Aldi - may be the culmination of inhuman violence against the Rohingya, a stateless people persecuted in the Burmese state of Rakhine, where it has stabilized.
The tragedy of the Rohingya
Hunted and rejected everywhere, many Rohingya are victims of human trafficking. Raped, killed or sold as slaves on Thai fishing vessels, which supply shrimp and shrimp to our shops. The denounce it petition addressed to the UN Human Rights Council (in English UNHRC, United Nations Human Rights Council), to intervene to stop this chain of suffering.
Sign the petition
GIFT, Food Times e FARE they adhere to the petition, and invite all their readers to support it - by signing - and to make propaganda in turn. In line with our primary guiding value:
'' All food production, wherever they are located, must fully preserve workers, trade unions and their rights, local communities and food sovereignty, the environment and animal welfare. '
Complaint and fight
In addition to expressing our outrage, we cheer on revolt.
We require that:
- the brands of canned fish based on the supply of 'slave fish' are published. 'Name & Shame';
- the heads of all their senior executives - starting with that of the CEO Global, who by definition 'could not fail to know' - on the tables of the accused, before being removed forever from their posts. Their names - with details of company and role covered - published in the register of perennial shame, to be established at the ILO;
- exemplary compensation of these sewers of crony-capitalism towards the affected populations must express multiple measures of the total turnover of the product lines involved in the destruction.
In the meantime, and until the reparations are effectively carried out, we will promote and maintain boycott actions on all products attributable to the multinationals of slavery.
