[OPIRG-EVENTS] Child Labour Profits in Your Bottom Line?
Have you ever wondered how your direct or indirect investments may
possibly sustain the suffering of innocent children in distant countries?
The Capital SRI group has invited Laura Hannant to share with us some
of her experiences and knowledge about the real and undeniable effects
that our own personal investments can have and do have on children
used as labourers.
On Monday March 25th at 7pm, at the Glebe Community Centre,
120 Lyon Street in Ottawa, Laura Hannant will tell of her experiences
meeting child labourers from sweatshops while in Pakistan.
In a few days Laura will be travellng to Sweden for a meeting of the
jury for the World Children's Prize, providing recognition and support
for children struggling against oppression. All jury members are
18 years of age or younger. Screening out Canadian vendors of
sweatshop products as well as other issues related to finalizing
Capital SRI's ethical portfolio and website will be discussed.
Candidates are sought for committee work.
