Sainsbury's Day Of Action

 

We’ve just heard that the Don’t Ditch Fairtrade coalition <https://e-activist.com/ea-action/broadcast.record.message.click.do?ea.url.id=1071345&ea.campaigner.email=nS0nt6O2Te8VBZDGcWae8FoujeQC7h6jibX66GqT1Vc=&ea.campaigner.id=8uTXz%2FzivVeZkArzVWMSmA==&ea_broadcast_target_id=0> , led by CAFOD (one of the founders of the Fairtrade Foundation), is organising a National Day of Action <https://e-activist.com/ea-action/broadcast.record.message.click.do?ea.url.id=1071346&ea.campaigner.email=nS0nt6O2Te8VBZDGcWae8FoujeQC7h6jibX66GqT1Vc=&ea.campaigner.id=8uTXz%2FzivVeZkArzVWMSmA==&ea_broadcast_target_id=0> on Saturday 28 October as part of their campaign to stop Sainsbury’s ditching the Fairtrade Mark from their own-brand tea.

 

They’re asking supporters to come together outside their local Sainsbury’s store on 28 October and take action: chat to customers, collect signatures on a letter to the store manager, invite the local press down. And they’ve got lots of resources to help you out, find out more here. <https://e-activist.com/ea-action/broadcast.record.message.click.do?ea.url.id=1071347&ea.campaigner.email=nS0nt6O2Te8VBZDGcWae8FoujeQC7h6jibX66GqT1Vc=&ea.campaigner.id=8uTXz%2FzivVeZkArzVWMSmA==&ea_broadcast_target_id=0>

 

CAFOD have asked us to let them know how many Fairtrade supporters will be joining the campaign, so if you’ve got plans to take part, please reply to this email and let us know.

 

If you’re busy on the 28 October but would still like to get involved, you can still sign the sign the Change.org petition <https://e-activist.com/ea-action/broadcast.record.message.click.do?ea.url.id=1071348&ea.campaigner.email=nS0nt6O2Te8VBZDGcWae8FoujeQC7h6jibX66GqT1Vc=&ea.campaigner.id=8uTXz%2FzivVeZkArzVWMSmA==&ea_broadcast_target_id=0> started by Fairtrade supporter Barbara Gwinnett.

 

The Fairtrade Foundation remains focused on finding a way forward with Sainsbury’s that is in the best interests of the tea farmers and workers we represent, and are still hopeful that through discussions we can see their own-brand tea go back to being Fairtrade certified.
