For many years, we have had a good relationship with Stella Maris including speakers to our classes and fundraising for their work. This online panel is sure to be of great interest and perhaps eye-opening for many of us.
To mark World Fisheries Day, please join Stella Maris (formerly known as Apostleship of the Sea) for an online panel discussion on Tuesday 23rd November from 7.30pm to 9pm GMT to take a look at the darker side of the maritime world: modern slavery aboard some fishing vessels, and at what is being done about it. Panellists include Deacon Nick O’Neill from the Diocese (who is also Stella Maris Senior Area Port Chaplain for South England and Wales), experts from the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency and other specialist organisations. The panel will explore this issue further, to explain how fishers can find themselves trapped in this horrific situation, and what we at Stella Maris and others do to rescue and protect those in danger.
