    I would sign it, but I don't like giving my address (and therefore my family address) out when I don't fully understand the reasons. Maybe explain it further? I'd sign it if it wasn't for the address thing.

    They provide jobs for people who would otherwise be on the street, even if people who wear them want all sweatshops to be closed down as they think there so evil.

    Exactly. People should be more consistent in their beliefs. If you're against free trade and globalisation, then you damn well shouldn't be buying things manufactured in foreign factories. Nevermind sweatshops.

    I would advise people not to click on that, it's got some pretty dodgy ideas on it, and personally I think christian aid are being purposely misleading to manipulate people into supporting their unusual political beliefs.

    and they're deliberately misleading people over what 'trade justice,' actually is, primarily by calling it trade justice. alot of economists believe that doing what they want would harm the third world's development. whether these economists are right or wrong is a matter for intense debate, but they are abusing the lack of knowledge of the general population.

    Its not Christian Aids fault. If anything its Sir Bob Geldof and Bonos, they made the coalition MPH Manifesto. That would be calling the organisation i founded, disgusting and misleading for promoting Trade Jsutice. We're just doing what we're told as coalition members.

    You shouldn't do "just what you're told," if you think it's wrong.

    If you think econmicalists is a word, you really have not researched the subject have you? Yet you're brainwashing thousands of young people with trendy ideas about capitalism and greed, whilst the truth is alot of intelligent people believe that free trade is the best if not only way for the 3rd world to develop.

    I agree, im a pure capitalist. I was merely pointing out the hypocricy of the people who wear them - they are the same people who condemn sweatshops yet where their products.
