UK Cotton Companies Abusing Kids…

December 12, 2010

This press release shows that the European Centre for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) has filed a complaint against two UK based firms, Liverpool’s Cargill Cotton and London’s ICT Cotton, for complicity in the abuse of children’s rights in Uzbekistan.

The ECCHR says these companies “have contributed substantially to maintaining the use of child and forced labour in the Uzbek cotton production”.

If you’re sickened by this let them know…

ICT COTTON LIMITED, 12 BRIDEWELL PLACE, 3RD FLOOR, EAST UNIT, LONDON, , EC4V 6AP, UNITED KINGDOM – TEL: 01919239526/7 FAX: 01919241706 EMAIL: trading@ictcotton.ch

We like to bear in mind that we’re talking to workers, not boss scum. So we keep our emails friendly…

SUBJECT: Need cheap product! Never mind the ethics!

To whom it may concern,

We know you’re only a small cog in a mighty big wheel, but we also know that you know child labour is wrong – – http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukpress/article/ALeqM5htCqhMhRyEBTrVT9i9C8sk6BnyqA?docId=N0099911292146240987A

If you care what happens to kids you need to express your concern to your bosses. Better still kick ’em out, you know you don’t really need ’em 😉

Healthy profit margins are all they need to ease their shriveled consciences. We know you’re better than that.

If you look down you’ll see two appendages hanging from your body. They’re you’re legs – use them and walk away from you’re abusive paymasters.

In solidarity x

Warm regards,
Robin Goodfella
