Fairtrade Foundation: They Don't Have A Voice, But You Do


Every single UK MP entering Parliament after the next election will have a say on the future of millions of hard-pressed farmers and workers across the world.


But those farmers and workers don't have a say in that election. We need to speak up for them. <http://e-activist.com/ea-action/enclick?ea.url.id=4408928&clid=1904&ea.campaigner.email=%2FoQH3Pc8uUYW74CEhSYedNi7SBjRL51PURKQ3UxCEoI=&ea.campaigner.id=N48ecobncs0UHgIT5m4sfA==>


tell your next mp to back fairtrade <http://e-activist.com/ea-action/enclick?ea.url.id=4408929&clid=1904&ea.campaigner.email=%2FoQH3Pc8uUYW74CEhSYedNi7SBjRL51PURKQ3UxCEoI=&ea.campaigner.id=N48ecobncs0UHgIT5m4sfA==>


Cocoa farmers in West Africa can't tell your candidates how they are being underpaid for their work.


Coffee farmers in East Africa can't tell them how important UK aid is to their ability to trade fairly.




And around the world, those Fairtrade farmers who have contributed least to the climate crisis can't say they are being hit hardest.


So we need to tell their stories <http://e-activist.com/ea-action/enclick?ea.url.id=4408931&clid=1904&ea.campaigner.email=%2FoQH3Pc8uUYW74CEhSYedNi7SBjRL51PURKQ3UxCEoI=&ea.campaigner.id=N48ecobncs0UHgIT5m4sfA==> . Make sure your local candidates understand their responsibilities aren't just local - ask them to back Fairtrade and a fairer future.

After you click on the button above, you'll have a chance to send a message to your local candidates, asking them to stand with farmers and workers across the world if elected.


Want to get more involved?


This election is a great chance to remind all candidates that voters like you demand action on unfair trade, global poverty, human rights abuses and the climate crisis.
