Let's become Sweatshop free!

What is sweatshop Free?

A movement of people across the world, who are coming together to win workers’ rights for sweatshop laborers. 

As part of #ChrisCombatstheClimateCrisis;


Chris has invited activists from People & Planet to Leeds Trinity on Thursday, 21-11-19, 4pm, AF35.


They are running an informal workshop (no pun intended) on; 

  • How students can support their Sweatshop Free campaign
  • Ensure that LTU knows where it's electronics have come from.

Computers made in sweatshops end up in our stores, schools, colleges, universities, communities, workplaces and homes. Workers that made them likely spent excessively long hours in dangerous factories. Some are at risk of developing cancer from toxic chemical exposure, which also pollutes the environment. Many sweatshop workers experience violence and are at risk of modern slavery.
