My friend it is easy to sit in your comfort and ask for these humanitarian petition but look on the other side of the coin that what will these children do to feed themselves.It is right that child's place is in playground and not on the working field but remember my friend hunger is the biggest evil and again they will be forced to do work but this time not by anyone else but by there own fate. So this petition will only make their life worse unless it does not support an alternati for their livelihood

Very true - it's not just about stopping evil practices, but replacing them with good alternatives.

Destroying the rain forest and wildlife habitat so that industries manufacture a product that has all ready been proven to be detrimental to our health, people should be taught to grow foods that are beneficial to them and grow in dependant from industrialized bloodsuckers

The proper alternative is for corporations that are exploiting children so they can more money to cease the practice and hire their parents. Most of these exploited children aren't just having to feed themselves but their whole families. Corporate greed is the problem and will continue to be as long as they can continue exploiting the poor.

The problem here is, as long as there is poverty in these countries. Such practices will never end. People in the west play with money like it's nothing. One person eats enough food in one meal which four could eat. The real cause of child labour, piracy, etc is poverty. Those children's parents send them to work because the are poor.

These palm oil plantation are taking over the wild forests, destroying nature, and in all our foods, I use Olive Oil only, healthy, the trees grow to a great age, and generally doesn't deforest the third world....

Child labor is even worse in Africa and the campaign is a wake up call to all.

Why do you want to know? Oh I see you want to boycott the products and have the stores that sell them remove them from the shelves? Great idea, but will it be enough to impact the real problem of corporate greed? Probably not, but it could well be a step in the right direction for other corporations besides Cargill.
