One response to “Comprehensive Blog: Corporations using the law to silence human rights defenders (the Andy Hall case)

  1. A few years ago the big brand clothing and shoe retailers were named and shamed by the mainstream media for using dubious and cheap labour in Bangladesh, Indonesia and Cambodia to manufacture their products. It did have an effect that branded named companies sent inspectors to some of the factories and of course the adverse publicity of being named led to a short time boycott of their products.
    As human rights abuses and trafficking of women and children abound in Thailand, especially in the canning and fishing industries, some publicity should be aired regarding the importers of products from Natural Fruit and Thai shrimp exporters, especially in the US and Europe.
    If the end users (consumers) were to learn about the conditions that prevail in the production of those products then somebody would stand up and take notice. Natural Fruit are averse to negative publicity, but if the abuses were to be brought to the attention of the worldwide consumers of these products it could well lead to a massive decrease in their exports.

    Just one opinion out of many options available.
