From Mrs Mary Maslin SIR During the past week when

Britain has been remembering the evils of slavery in the past, it is essential as Christians that we realise the true extent of modem slavery and do all we can to help abolish it for good. Sweatshop labour is a fact of life for millions of people across the world and is the result of exploitation and greed by companies in the west, and the consumers' demand for low prices.

As consumers we can do our best to ensure that any clothes and goods we buy are produced in firms where worken are paid a decent wage, and do not have their basic rights violated by huge multi-nationals that turn a blind eye to the appalling injustices imposed on the workers.

Boycott the supermarkets that sell clothes produced by sweatshops and write to the chairman to inform them of your decision. Refuse to buy your children toys from fins who expect their workers to work 15 hours a day for a pittance. If you are unsure of the major culprits you can obtain information from charities such as Oxfam or fmd out from the web.

Yours faithfully, MARY MASLIN By e-mail
