Are SLAVES FISHING FOR YOUR FOOD? IT’S TIME TO HUMAN UP!

Slaves forces to fish for Americans FOOD
Time to human up and start REALLY knowing WHERE your food comes from and who was tortured and/or killed to get it! Karma is a bitch and so will be the human race if you don’t clean up your act already!

It’s time to claim responsibility – You’ve seen this and read it so now you are responsible to find out WHERE your fish came from and who was FORCED to get it for you – as as SLAVE – and if this is the case – Boycott ANY STORE in America or anywhere else in the world buying this crap from cruel monsters over in Indonesia,

No one should be a slave – not an human, an animal – no one.  And this is just sickening and unacceptable.

It’s time for human beings to stand up for the rights of others and protect them.

As we care for our least – This is the mark of our evolution in humanity.

If you want to take action – write or call these scum bags and tell them to stop supporting this sort of debauchery.

BENJINA, Indonesia (AP) — The Burmese slaves sat on the floor and stared through the rusty bars of their locked cage, hidden on a tiny tropical island thousands of miles from home.
Just a few yards away, other workers loaded cargo ships with slave-caught seafood that clouds the supply networks of major supermarkets, restaurants and even pet stores in the United States.
Here, in the Indonesian island village of Benjina and the surrounding waters, hundreds of trapped men represent one of the most desperate links criss-crossing between companies and countries in the seafood industry. This intricate web of connections separates the fish we eat from the men who catch it, and obscures a brutal truth: Your seafood may come from slaves.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Associated Press notified the International Organization for Migration about men in this story, who were then moved out of Benjina by police for their safety. Hundreds of slaves remain on the island, and five other men were in the cage this week.
—-
The men The Associated Press spoke to on Benjina were mostly from Myanmar, also known as Burma, one of the poorest countries in the world. They were brought to Indonesia through Thailand and forced to fish. Their catch was shipped back to Thailand, and then entered the global commerce stream.
Tainted fish can wind up in the supply chains of some of America’s major grocery stores, such as Kroger, Albertsons and Safeway; the nation’s largest retailer, Wal-Mart; and the biggest food distributor, Sysco. It can find its way into the supply chains of some of the most popular brands of canned pet food, including Fancy Feast, Meow Mix and Iams. It can turn up as calamari at fine dining restaurants, as imitation crab in a California sushi roll or as packages of frozen snapper relabeled with store brands that land on our dinner tables.
In a year-long investigation, the AP interviewed more than 40 current and former slaves in Benjina. The AP documented the journey of a single large shipment of slave-caught seafood from the Indonesian village, including squid, snapper, grouper and shrimp, and tracked it by satellite to a gritty Thai harbor. Upon its arrival, AP journalists followed trucks that loaded and drove the seafood over four nights to dozens of factories, cold storage plants and the country’s biggest fish market.
Some fishermen, risking their lives, begged the reporters for help.
“I want to go home. We all do,” one Burmese slave called out over the side of his boat, a cry repeated by many men. “Our parents haven’t heard from us for a long time, I’m sure they think we are dead.”
Their catch mixes in with other fish at numerous sites in Thailand, including processing plants. U.S. Customs records show that several of those Thai factories ship to America. They also ship to Europe and Asia, but the AP traced shipments to the U.S., where trade records are public.

The major corporations identified by AP declined interviews but issued statements that strongly condemned labor abuses; many described their work with human rights groups to hold subcontractors accountable.
National Fisheries Institute spokesman Gavin Gibbons, speaking on behalf of 300 U.S. seafood firms that make up 75 percent of the industry, said his members are troubled by the findings.
“It’s not only disturbing, it’s disheartening because our companies have zero tolerance for labor abuses,” he said. “These type of things flourish in the shadows.”
The slaves interviewed by the AP described 20- to 22-hour shifts and unclean drinking water. Almost all said they were kicked, beaten or whipped with toxic stingray tails if they complained or tried to rest. They were paid little or nothing.
Runaway Hlaing Min said many died at sea.

“If Americans and Europeans are eating this fish, they should remember us. There must be a mountain of bones under the sea,” he said. “The bones of the people could be an island, it’s that many.”

The small harbor in the village is occupied by Pusaka Benjina Resources, whose five-story office compound includes the cage with the slaves. The company is the only fishing operation on Benjina officially registered in Indonesia, and is listed as the owner of more than 90 trawlers. However, the captains are Thai, and the Indonesian government is reviewing to see if the boats are really Thai-owned. Pusaka Benjina did not respond to phone calls and a letter, and did not speak to a reporter who waited for two hours in the company’s Jakarta office.
At the Benjina port, the AP interviewed slaves from a dozen fishing vessels offloading their catch into a large refrigerated cargo ship, the Silver Sea Line.
The ship belonged to the Silver Sea Reefer Co., which is registered in Thailand and has at least nine refrigerated cargo boats. The company said it is not involved with the fishermen.

“We only carry the shipment and we are hired in general by clients,” said company owner Panya Luangsomboon. “We’re separated from the fishing boats.”
The AP followed that ship, using satellite tracking over 15 days to Samut Sakhon, Thailand, and journalists watched as workers packed the seafood over four nights onto more than 150 trucks, following deliveries to factories around the city.
Inside those plants, representatives told AP journalists that they sold seafood to other Thai processors and distributors. U.S. Customs bills of lading identify specific shipments from those plants to American firms, including well-known brand names.
For example, one truck bore the name and bird logo of Kingfisher Holdings Ltd., which supplies frozen and canned seafood around the world. Another truck went to Mahachai Marine Foods Co., a cold storage business that also supplies Kingfisher, according to Kawin Ngernanek, whose family runs it.
“Yes, yes, yes, yes,” said Kawin, who also serves as spokesman for the Thai Overseas Fisheries Association. “Kingfisher buys several types of products.”
When later asked about abusive labor practices, Kawin was not available. Instead, Mahachai Marine Foods manager Narongdet Prasertsri responded: “I have no idea about it at all.” Kingfisher did not answer repeated requests for comment.
Every month, Kingfisher and its subsidiary KF Foods Ltd. sends about 100 metric tons of seafood from Thailand to America, according to U.S. Customs records. These shipments have gone to Stavis Seafoods, a Boston-based Sysco supplier, and other distributors.

“The truth is, these are the kind of things that keep you up at night,” said CEO Richard Stavis, who grandfather started the company. He said his business visits international processors, requires notarized certification of legal practices and uses third-party audits.

“There are companies like ours that care and are working as hard as they can,” he said.

Slaves from Myanmar lean over the deck of their fishing trawler at the port in Benjina, Indonesia. “I want to go home. We all do,” one man called out in Burmese, a cry repeated by others. “Our parents haven’t heard from us for a long time. I’m sure they think we are dead.” (AP Photo/APTN)
A similar pattern repeats itself with other companies and shipments.
The AP followed another truck to Niwat Co., where part owner Prasert Luangsomboon said the company sells to Thai Union Manufacturing. Weeks later, when confronted about forced labor in their supply chain, Niwat referred several requests for comment to Luangsomboon, who could not be reached for further comment.
Thai Union Manufacturing Co. is a subsidiary of Thai Union Frozen Products PCL., Thailand’s largest seafood corporation, with $3.5 billion in annual sales. This parent company, known simply as Thai Union, owns Chicken of the Sea and is buying Bumble Bee, although the AP did not observe any tuna fisheries.
Thai Union says its direct clients include Wal-Mart – (How SHOCKING!) , and ships thousands of cans of cat food to the U.S. every month, including household brands like Fancy Feast, Meow Mix and Iams. These end up on shelves of major grocery chains, such as Kroger, Safeway and Albertsons, as well as pet stores. Again, however, it’s impossible to tell if a particular can of cat food might have slave-caught seafood.

It’s time to mourn people. My laptop has died. It’s not just my laptop it’s Earth’s laptop. It might’ve been the Katy Perry video I made that killed it. It’s one of the worst things I’ve ever done if not the worst. Yes and I thought Katy Perry was bad but the video I made was badder, baby.

And now Earth’s computer is dead. I’m arranging for the funeral for this weekend which is also my son’s birthday so there will be balloons.

Yes, this means that Earth’s personal dummy needs to get another laptop.

Its time to sell a lot of shirts …. since she only gets two dollars on every shirt she sells … Zazzle takes the rest!

Oh, what is to become of me? My only place I ever put solutions was on my computer. Now my place for solutions has turned into a screaming banshee with red squares. Holy Christmas Candy! The ding dang computer has gone Minecraft on itself! That’s exactly what it looks like! I just figured it out. The ridiculous computer looks like Minecraft!

I’m going to turn it on and take a picture of it so I can show you.

Holy handstands Batman! it’s all better!

Now that’s what I call a miracle!

It’s all better now. I can’t believe it it’s all better. The computer is working. It’s quit playing Minecraft on itself and ceased screaming. My Photoshop is still here, my Final Cut Pro is still here and I if all my memories are still here then we’re good to go!

I promise for as long as I live I will never produce another Katy Perry video.

After the barbaric terrorist attacks done by the hands of my fellow Muslims everywhere on this globe, and after the too many violent acts by Islamists in many parts of the world, I feel responsible as a Muslim and as a human being to speak out and tell the truth to protect the world and Muslims as well from a coming catastrophe and war of civilizations.

Dr. Tawfik Hamid (CONTINUED)

 We have never had a clear and strong stand against the concept of slavery or wars, to spread our religion and to subjugate others to Islam and force them to pay a humiliating tax called jizia.

EARTH SPEAKS OUT - ABOLISHING SLAVERY WORLD WIDE

We ask others to respect our religion while all the time we curse non-Muslims loudly (in Arabic) in our Friday prayers in the mosques.

What message do we convey to our children when we call the Jews “descendants of the pigs and monkeys”?  [Yet, both Arabs and Jews are descendants of Ibrahim (Abraham)!]

Is this a message of love and peace, or a message of hate?

Earth Speaks Out #Puttingloveinthemiddle
Many of the rally’s participants were amazed to learn that slavery was legal in Saudi Arabia until 1962. Within a decade of America’s Civil War, the Ottomans had banned slavery and dhimmitude throughout the Empire. Just as in the U.S. it was the South, i.e. Arabia, wihch rose up and fought a civil war against Istanbul, in the same way that the American south went to war against Abraham Lincoln’s governement. Tragically, in the Ottoman civiil war, the southern slavers (ARABS) won. The Ottoman Empire dropped its demands for emancipation in Arabia. Yes, the slave masters won the right to hold slaves, and that right was only abolished in Saudi Arabia in 1962. Sudan’s Arab colonizers have never given up their right to hold and traffic in slaves. Sudan Freedom Walk
See Simon on Youtube, speaking about his experiences as a slave, then later a political activist working to help the Sudanese people. “The world ignored the problems in southern Sudan for so long because…the government of Sudan is waging…jihad against the infidels (the black Christians), the world doesn’t want to be accused of being intolerant anti-islam. Since the victims are Christians and black Africans, the world doesn’t care.” Read the transcript of a speech Simon gave last year in Geneva
Monica, standing on the left, is Simon’s wife, also from southern Sudan. Eva, on his right, is an American supporter.
The tribal scars across Simon’s forehead are traditional for men from the Shilluk tribe. When Simon was a child slave, he happened to see a man with these tribal scars, and knew the man must be from his village. He asked that man for help, and that is how he escaped.

I have been into [Christian] churches and [Jewish] synagogues where they were praying for Muslims.

While all the time, we curse them, and teach our generations to call them “infidels”, and to hate them.

Earth Speaks Out - The REAL Muslim

We immediately jump in a ‘knee jerk reflex’ to defend Prophet Mohammad when someone accuses him of being a pedophile while, at the same time, …we are proud with the story in our Islamic books that he married a young girl seven years old [Aisha] when he was above 50 years old.

Shocked is all I can say!

I am sad to say that many, if not most of us, rejoiced in happiness after September 11th and after many other terror attacks.

Muslims denounce these attacks to look good in front of the media, but we condone the Islamic terrorists and sympathise with their cause.

Earth Speaks Out - Transformation

Until now our ‘reputable’ top religious authorities have never issued a fatwa or religious statement to proclaim Bin Laden as an apostate, while an author, like Rushdie, was declared an apostate who should be killed according to Islamic Shari’a law just for writing a book criticizing Islam.

Muslims demonstrated to get more religious rights as we did in France to stop the ban on the hijab (head scarf),

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 10.10.20 PM

while we did not demonstrate with such passion and in such numbers against the terrorist murders. It is our absolute silence against the terrorists that gives the energy to these terrorists to continue doing their evil acts.

We Muslims need to stop blaming our problems on others or on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

Earth Speaks Out

As a matter of honesty, Israel is the only light of democracy, civilization, and human rights in the whole Middle East .

We kicked out the Jews with no compensation or mercy from most of the Arab countries to make them “Jews-free countries” while Israel accepted more than a million Arabs to live there, have their own nationality, and enjoy their rights as human beings. In Israel, women cannot be beaten legally by men, and any person can change his/her belief system with no fear of being killed by the Islamic law of ‘apostasy,’ while in our Islamic world people do not enjoy any of these rights.

I agree that the ‘Palestinians’ suffer, but they suffer because of their corrupt leaders and not because of Israel .

Earth Speaks Out
Is peace possible? Listen to this Muslim Doctor and find out how.

It is not common to see Arabs who live in Israel leaving to live in the Arab world.

On the other hand, we used to see thousands of Palestinians going to work with happiness in Israel , its ‘enemy.’  If Israel treats Arabs badly as some people claim, surely we would have seen the opposite happening.Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 10.16.26 PM

We Muslims need to admit our problems and face them. Only then we can treat them and start a new era to live in harmony with human mankind.Â

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 10.17.14 PM

Our religious leaders have to show a clear, and very strong stand against polygamy, paedophilia, slavery, killing those who convert from Islam to other religion, beating of women by men, and declaring wars on non-Muslims to spread Islam.Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 10.18.19 PM
