April 2017

In this edition read about the voices that must be heard in the fight against oppression. You can read about how British firms are reinforcing a ruthless dictatorship in Eritrea and how we are demanding action to halt corporate complicity in brutal human rights abuses.

Also in this edition learn more about how we’re standing with migrant workers, fighting racism and together with our partners in Sri Lanka securing fundamental rights for garment workers.
