“Stand with anti-slavery activist Andy Hall”, August 2014

Andy Hall is a British campaigner with a special focus on the rights of migrant workers…[who] undertook an investigation on behalf of Finnwatch into potential labour abuses at Natural Fruit, part of NatGroup…Instead of addressing the allegations published in Finnwatch’s report, Natural Fruit decided to try and silence Andy with lawsuits. He could now face 7 years in prison and $10 million in legal damages for his investigations…This threatens the work of anti-slavery campaigners but also workers in Thailand who might be too afraid to come forward and report abuse. Join the call for justice: demand that Natural Fruit drop all charges against Andy Hall and thoroughly investigate and take action to ensure there is no modern slavery or exploitation in their business.
