Indonesian migrant fishers protest lack of Wi-Fi onboard distant-water fishing vessels

Earlier this monthNAMA stood in solidarity with migrant fishers who brought community together outside the Boston Convention Center to protest the Seafood Expo North America and the human rights abuses the many conference sponsors condone. Migrant fishers who work aboard Taiwan’s distant-water fishing fleet – the second largest in the world – joined by local and international labor and NGO allies and advocates, took their campaign for #WiFiNOWforFishersRights international, demanding that labor rights, which start with and depend on communication access at sea, be at the heart of the conversation and priorities of the global seafood industry and the governments and international bodies that regulate it.
