Please sign this petition at Whitehouse.gov: http://wh.gov/eMAA
we petition the obama administration to:
ban the import, distribution, and/or sale of products produced using slave labor.
There are more slaves today worldwide than in any other time in history, an estimated 27 million slaves. Many of them are engaged in the production of raw materials and finished goods sold in the United States. Domestic and international slave labor produce goods as part of the supply chains of companies doing business in the U.S., including U.S. companies.
This petition asks the United States Government to require all companies manufacturing, distributing, and/or selling products in the United States to verify via internal and third party supply chain audits that their goods are slavery-free. In addition, it proposes that all raw, semi-finished, and finished goods found to contain ingredients produced by slavery be subject to seizure, along with fines and criminal prosecution.
