Demand Hershey's get Fair Trade Certified ending child slavery in the Ivory Coast

Currently The Hershey's Company is buying chocolate and sugar from non- fair trade farms that participate in slave labor, child slavery, extremely dangerous working conditions, chemical use without protection, serious human rights violations, and even human trafficking! They entirely rely on us consumers for their profits and will change their products based on consumer feedback. We must show them that what they are doing is unexceptable and that they MUST get Fair Trade Certified NOW! Fair Trade means the workers on the cocoa and sugar farms get paid a fair and living wage and not subject to any of the above atrocities. As global citizens we must stand up for the human rights of people who cannot speak up for themselves. To Help: Only buy Fair Trade chocolate, sugar, tea, coffee etc and do not support Hershey's, Nestle, M&M or any of their other name brands.
The time is now.
