HRC was recently mentioned in Yahoo Taiwan’s report on our joint campaign with Global Labor Justice-International Labor Rights Forum, Fospi, Stella Mari Kaohsiung, Taiwan Association for Human Rights demanding fishers have access to Wi-Fi onboard distant-water fishing vessels. The article highlights the issue of migrant workers onboard Taiwanese fishing vessels being at sea for months at a time, cut off from the rest of the world. Yahoo Taiwan also shines a light on the petition that has been created to harbour support on the matter, in the hopes that the Taiwanese government will take concrete action in protecting the rights of fishers at sea.
