The US Department of Sate (TIP report, 2012) estimates that as many as 27 million men, women and children are currently victims of human trafficking and slavery around the world.

Thailand is the third-largest seafood exporter in the world, after China and Norway, with exports valued by the Food and Agriculture Organization at around $7.3 billion in 2011. The Thai fishing industry extensively relies on slavery and forced labor.
The rise in forced labor on Thai fishing boats is linked to the growing global demand for low-cost seafood. The Burmese crews on the fishing boats are treated as modern-day slaves.
Mahachai, unofficially known as “Little Myanmar” is located southwest of Bangkok and crowded with migrant workers from Myanmar. They are working at seafood factories and employed by Thai employers, for minimum wages of Bt200 (5EUR) per day. The use of trafficked labour is systematic in the Thai fishing industry. Migrant workers in the fishing industry, are suffering terrible abuses and are all too often denied their basic human rights
Some workers still don't have a status, although many of them have been living here for some time, some even managing to run small businesses like restaurants, bookstores, clothing stores and hair salons. Although they own small businesses, they still live in fear.
The area is officially under the control of the Thai police department. Migrant workers have to pay a bribe to Thai police officers monthly to avoid arrest. Police officers usually ask Bt800 per month for a shop owner who does not have all its paperwork. A worker can get arrested easily by police, which makes up stories about their illegal activities. When that happens, a price must be negotiated between the worker and police.Art Gallery Photography Brussels
