0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

E-waste is one type of waste that isn't being discarded properly. Many places such as Australia and other richer countries are sending their e-waste (electronic waste) to third world countries, often illegally. In these countries often people including children, search for valuable metals such as Gold, Copper and Iron as well as discarding it in dangerous ways. One of these ways is burning which produce harmful toxins into the air which can have deadly effects on the workers and residents of the country.

They deserve better.

They need better working conditions and The Australian Government has the power to give them what they deserve. They can do this by putting tougher restriction laws and consoling Ghana's government to solve the problem.

It is your power to change this inhumane situation.
