Piraeus, Greece, May 25, 2021. After a very difficult period worldwide, both onshore and onboard, it is time to recognize as a priority, the right of seafarers to safety and health standards, such as immediate access to Covid-19 vaccines, facilitation of repatriation and sustained efforts to eradicate piracy. According to BIMCO, over 90% of world trade is carried by ship, and around 1.7 million seafarers work to facilitate the way we live, making sure we get everything we need in our daily lives. They too deserve to go home safely after work. Governments need to recognise the important role that seafarers play in society. What if it all stopped? Seafarers Deserve Support!
