What does modern-day slavery look like, and are we complicit in perpetuating it?
Patima Tungpuchayakul is a Bangkok-based activist who has committed her life to rescuing fishermen who have been trafficked into slavery on Thai fishing boats. Fighting death threats, corruption and complacency, Patima and her small team have vowed to free these men and help them obtain justice.
Work. Eat. Sleep. And back to work. For a long time skippers in the North East of Scotland could not find locals to work on their fishing vessels. That was until Filipino fishermen started coming to town for work.
