Fair Trade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices, Fair Trade addr esses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives. Springwood Uniting Church is a Fair Trade Faith Group. We also host an annual Fair Trade Fair in November.
BMRSG was established in 2001 in response to the Tampa disaster and the emergence of harsh Government policy towards asylum seekers.
We are a diverse group of ordinary Australians from all sides of politics. We urge the Government to treat asylum seekers and refugees humanely and in accordance with the UN Convention on Refugees – signed by Australia in 1954.
Our aim is to provide financial and practical assistance to asylum seekers and refugees living in detention and the community and to raise public awareness of asylum seeker and refugee issues.
Stop the Traffik is a global movement of individuals, communities and organisations fighting to prevent human trafficking around the world. Stop the Traffik prevents human trafficking by:
Taking local action
People are trafficked from a community and into a community, therefore the community must work together to prevent it.
Building a global movement
Around the world people from all sectors of society unite to take action – locally, nationally and internationally.
Campaigning for change
STOP THE TRAFFIK equips people to understand what trafficking is, how it affects them and what they can do about it through global campaigns.
