When The New Yorker story broke on forced labor allegedly being used in Chinese seafood factories, a familiar sinking feeling crept into my stomach.

It is the same feeling I have when I read most world news these days, but worse, it isn't accompanied by shock or surprise, just a general feeling of resignation.

Over the last few days myself and my colleagues have investigated the story ourselves, trying to get some kind of clarity on whether this is happening, on what scale, and -- if it is happening -- who might have known.
