Cotton Traders has informed the Burma Campaign UK that it is to pull out of Burma days after a public boycott campaign was launched….a Burma Campaign UK investigation revealed that Cotton Traders were sourcing clothes from Burma…"Cotton Traders have made the right decision and pulled out of Burma. However, they should never have been in the country at all. By sourcing clothes from Burma they have helped to fund a dictatorship that uses rape, torture and murder to oppress its own people" said Johnny Chatterton, Campaigns Officer at the Burma Campaign UK. Cotton Traders Product Director, Paul Hawkins issued the following statement: "No new styles will be placed in Burma and as such Cotton Traders has ceased to source product from Burma."
