Seafarers are the lifeblood of the global maritime and fishing industries. Without them, the industry fails. It is therefore essential that all seafarers, whatever their nationality, gender, religion, orientation and whatever vessel they work on are protected from human rights and labour rights abuses.
Exposure of all such abuses must be a priority to ensure a transparent industry and global maritime sector which provides access to effective remedies without impunity.
