Mr Dirk-Jan van Hameren

I am writing to you because your company Nike supports the use of child labour and is responsible for importing cheap goods from Bangladesh. You need to stop this and find a new supplier because what you are doing is promoting the exploitation and abuse of innocent children, it needs to stop.
Using children in third world countries to produce products for first world consumers is an immoral act. It relies on using cheap labour in below standard conditions.

I urge you through this petition to take action by finding an alternative supplier that has ethical standards and provides fair working conditions. If you do this you will send a message to those suppliers that you are not prepared to take goods that have been made by children. If you make this change then others will follow as you have a huge influence in the manufacturing community. The flow on affect to using factories that support ethical working standards would be an improvement to the quality of life of thousands of children in Bangladesh.
With a change in laws these children would be able to be educated they would be safe from the dangerous working conditions and free to live a happier life.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to consider my request and I hope you are able to make a positive change for the children in Bangladesh.

Yours sincerely,
Jake Prothero

This action is really important because it will make a better future for all of our children. This man that is importing cheap goods has no idea what he is doing, he is destroying the future of these children who work 10 to 12 hours a day and have no breaks. If we get enough signatures on this petition Mr Dirk-Jan van Hameren will hopefully change his ways of importing from Bangladesh.
