Fish on American plates caught by slave labor
"In a two-part series for NPR, Investigative Fund reporters Shannon Service and Becky Palmstrom find that roughly 40 percent of the estimated 150,000 workers in the Thai fishing industry are foreigners, many of them victims of human trafficking."
"One of the workers, Cambodian Vannak Prum, did forced labor on Thai fishing boats for three years before undertaking a daredevil escape. Yesterday in Washington, DC, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton honored him as a 'trafficking hero.'"
