Dear all....

Although I am against spam...I have made an exception and sent the email below to everyone in my address book. Please feel free to try and generate extra support by copying the text and signing it yourself.

COME ON...LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

Dear all,

This is SPAM. Of sorts. But hopefully, itís ethically backed spam!

Iím sure you have seen or heard something about Trade Justice or MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY recently, what with LIVE8 and other campaigns.

The band AFTER THE FIRE has released a single for Christian Aid in support of their Trade Justice initiative which is part of the MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY campaign.

Here is one example of why we need to support trade justice; 

  • 90% of cocoa is produced by developing countries.

  • How much chocolate do you think they produce? Itís only 4%.

  • Why? Because there is no EU tariff on cocoa, but the EU tariff on processed chocolate is 18%, twice the average profit margin.

Trade justice? 

This is just one example of why we in the west need to become more aware of Trade Justice and the benefits it will have for developing countries.

Spread the word.

For more details about the campaign, visit the MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY website http://www.makepovertyhistory.org/ and the Christian Aid campaign site http://www.christianaid.org.uk/campaign/mph/index.htm.

Support AFTER THE FIRE and the Christian Aid backed campaign by buying the new single ONERULE (FORTRADEJUSTICE) here http://www.clickmachine.net/atf/index.cfm?fa=shopdetails& ;Product_ID=43.

Find out why AFTERTHEFIRE support this campaign here http://www.afterthefire.co.uk/mph.htm.

Cheers mídears.

P.S IF YOU KNOW OF OTHER PEOPLE WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN THIS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CLOG UP THE INTERNET WITH SOMETHING A BIT MORE ETHICAL, AND FORWARD THIS TO THEM!!!!
