Make Trade Fair

Make Trade Fair is a global movement calling for an end to unfair trade rules. It is organised by Oxfam International and its 12 affiliates and is part of the Global Call to Action Against Poverty. It calls on governments, institutions, and multinational companies to change the rules so that trade can become part of the solution to poverty, not part of the problem. Make Trade Fair brings together The Big Noise (a global petition to Make Trade Fair) amongst other campaigns, such as the Vote for Trade Justice campaign, Tescopoly campaign and many other campaigning tools and ideas.
Through the website, those interested in getting involved can send emails as part of campaigns or search the campaigning toolkit for more active ways to participate. The website has details of events and the latest news reports, indepth sections explaining the various issues (such as dumping, labour rights, access to medicine and the effects of cash crops) as well as a research area with reports produced by Oxfam.
