Supermarket Slave Trail

You may want to think twice next time you are considering eating prawns. The Supermarket Slave Trail is a disturbing video tracking down how some of the world’s big-supermarkets are using suppliers relying on slave labour to put cheap prawns on their shelves.

The video, based on a six-month Guardian investigation, shows how slaves are forced to work for no pay for years at a time under threat of extreme violence to supply seafood sold by major US, British and other European retailers including Walmart, Carrefour, Costco, Tesco, Morrisons, the Co-operative, Aldi and Iceland.

Click on the video to watch. Warning: Some people may find elements of this video distressing.
