Anti-Slavery Day

Dear Anti-Slavery supporter

Monday 18 October 2010 will mark the first Anti-Slavery Day in the UK. It is a sad reality that over 200 years since the abolition of the Transatlantic Slave Trade in Britain, slavery is still with us and millions of people around the world, including in the UK, are denied their basic freedom and dignity.

PLEASE help us mark this day by reviving the abolitionist spirit and joining with Anti-Slavery supporters everywhere to take a stand against slavery and call for an end to it NOW!

3 ways to make a change……..
1. LEARN at www.productsofslavery.orgTo mark Anti-Slavery Day, we are launching a brand new interactive website about slavery and the products we buy at to help you, as consumers, understand the scale of slavery in the global markets and how you can take action to end slave labour.

2. TAKE ACTION by signing our anti-trafficking petitionPlease use Anti-Slavery Day to call on David Cameron to commit to tackling trafficking in the UK by signing up to a new EU law to help protect victims of trafficking across Europe. The UK cannot afford to miss such a vital opportunity to combat trafficking - SIGN THE PETITION HERE

3. DONATE just one day's pay
On Anti-Slavery Day please consider donating your day's pay which will go a long way in helping those trapped in slavery - DONATE HERE

Please pass this email onto 10 friends and spread the word about Anti-Slavery Day!

Thank you for your support
