Ghost Fleet

by Jeffrey Waldron & Shannon Service

Do you know where the shrimp you buy at the supermarket comes from? If it’s Southeast Asia then it may have been caught by slaves. Led by Patima, a woman of unwavering determination, a small group of activists devote themselves, body and soul, to the fight against human trafficking. At present, they have already enabled 4,000 people, reduced to the status of modern ghosts, to return to their families after years of silence.
