Slaves of Indonesia: Men forced to catch seafood so world can have fish supply
A year-long investigation by the Associated Press has found that seafood caught by slaves in Indonesia is sent to Thailand, where the fish can wind up in the supply chains of global industries like Wal-mart, Kroger, Albertsons, and Safeway. This intricate web of connections separates the fish we eat from the men who catch it, and obscures a brutal truth: Your seafood may come from slaves. The Associated Press notified the International Organization for Migration about men in this Indonesian island village of Benjina. They were then moved out of Benjina by police for their safety. But, hundreds of slaves remain on the island, and five other men were in the cage this week.
