Myint arrived in Thailand dreaming of a new future.
But he was captured, chained and forced to work night and day on a fishing boat for 22 years, ending up penniless and partly-paralysed.
The millions trapped in slavery to produce the goods we buy have long been powerless and invisible. But now they’re coming forward to fight for their freedom, and they’re starting to win. It’s the perfect time to help them, and rid our world of this dreadful evil.
After years of denials, Nestlé was just forced to admit that some of its cat food may contain fish caught by slaves like Myint, and it’s readying for a bruising court battle in the USA over allegations that African child slaves pick cocoa to make some of its chocolate.
Now our community can stand with the brave individuals who are picking these fights, and help take them to the next level, taking more big businesses to court, launching hard-hitting investigations that let slaves testify safely to their atrocious treatment, and winning US and EU sanctions on slave products.
Every day that slavery persists in our world is a day too long. Chip in what you can to power our global abolition plan and make a historic contribution to the long march of freedom
