This is enough to make your shrimp scampi or salmon fillet turn to dust in your mouth. Take a look at this video report over at CNN.

The story of brothers Pheum Dina and Pheum Bolin, who were lured from Cambodia to work on the fishing boats three years ago. They say they were imprisoned on a Thai trawler for 3 months – with no pay and no chance to escape. They were slaves at sea.

You "abolish" the slave trade but someone always finds a way to prey upon the weak, poor, and desparate. How can Christians continue to fight slavery?

By the way, the on-going CNN Freedom Project: Ending Modern Day Slavery is a great resource for news from around the world on this complex and constantly evolving issue. Many kudos and blessings to CNN for taking it on.
