Slave labour producing prawns for supermarkets in US, UK: ask your question

Warning: some people may find elements of this film distressing.

Slaves forced to work for no pay for years at a time under threat of extreme violence are being used to supply seafood sold by major US, British and other European retailers including Walmart, Carrefour, Costco, Tesco, Morrisons, the Co-operative, Aldi and Iceland, the Guardian has revealed.

A six-month investigation established that large numbers of men are
bought, sold and held against their will on fishing
boats off Thailand and are integral to the production of prawns sold in major supermarkets in the UK and US.

Journalist Kate Hodal who worked on the investigation and Steve Trent from the Environmental Justice Foundation will answer your questions between 12-1pm GMT Wednesday 11 June.
