Stop Migrant Workers Exploitation!

Date and time

2011.07.21, 12:34 PM

Description

The Summer of S.A.M.E 2011 continues, with this week's official launch of S.A.M.E's "End Migrant Exploitation" video petition. The petition aims take a new approach to voicing a need for change. In this case, Students Against Migrant Exploitation is asking activists, community members, and youth alike to upload videos of themselves explaining why migrant exploitation should be stopped or by simply saying end or stop migrant exploitation. The videos will be compiled into what we hope will become one of Canada's largest video petitions ever. Check out the video posted and make sure you join the hundreds of students already signed onto this petition.

If you would like to help join the fight upload your videos to your computer or youtube, and send us the video or the link at info@thesame.ca
