- Human rights petition sent for Hawaii fishermen
By CALEB JONES, Associated Press - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
HONOLULU (AP) — Groups have filed a human-rights complaint that aims to jump-start an investigation into conditions among foreign workers in Hawaii's commercial fishing industry.The filing asks the panel to determine the responsibility of the U.S. for human rights violations against foreign workers in Hawaii's longline fishing fleet.Government at the state and federal level is failing to ensure even the most basic human rights for these workers, said Cassie Burdyshaw, advocacy and policy director for the Turtle Island group.Since initial reports, little has changed in the industry that provides ahi tuna and other fish to American and overseas consumers at a premium price.
