In Melbourne members of the Edmund Rice Network are preparing for two events this coming weekend.

On the morning of Sun 17th May a group of ERN members (and their family and friends) will meet and join in the building of a giant human sign at St Kilda beach in order to send a message to politicians and community leaders regarding the damage being done to the earth.

On that same afternoon, a ‘Fair Trade’ afternoon of entertainment is being organized at the home of a young group of ERN members (98 Charles Street Seddon) at which Fairtrade tea/coffee will be served. The event is part of Fairtrade fortnight which runs from May 3-17.

The Fairtrade campaign is aimed at advocating for structural change in international trading systems, to ensure that workers are paid a fair wage for their work and enabled to live dignified lives.

Further information about both events can be obtained from Paul Daly and from the LIVE website.
