Take a stand to end slavery
Unsung Stories Of Seafarers
Convention, 2006.&180 ILO Violations Neglected in the Cruise Industry . Everyone has a story to tell, and some of the most compelling stories here is the story of the writer who has been a victim of the violations of ILO & Human Rights requesting the ITF to look into the matter the Overall objectives of the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) 2006 Title 3: Accommodation, recreational facilities, food and catering to establish decent working and living conditions for all seafarers worldwide."My interest in slavery of modern times as an economic and cultural institution began with my desire to understand a dark chapter in cruise industry, but inevitably it led far beyond that. As this piece unfolds, its images and musical references make their way more and more into our own time, touching on our own passive participation in an economic system which is inherently dependent on human exploitation. Just as slavery is both ubiquitous and hidden, tucked into the corners of this piece you'll find echoes of music from many different times and places, including our own." The stories an unsung hero of oral history of the seas, never to be forgotten. It as been so common nowadays the companies are taking the ILO and Human Rights issues for granted when brought to notice they are being very defensive to cover up the mistakes.(Food, Accommodation, Bedding, Amenities etc. §27) 27.1 The Company shall provide, as a minimum, accommodation, recreational facilities and food and catering services in accordance with the standards specified in Title 3 to the draft ILO Consolidated Maritime Labour Convention 2006 and shall give due consideration to the Guidelines in that Convention.
"It's a life of isolation and they're aliens almost everywhere they go,"
a magical part of the world where the natural and the supernatural, ghosts and ghost stories live side by side with the hard-living Seafarers working on the High Seas. I will take a stand to end slavary....!!!!
