Fair Trade Association

Fair Trade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices, Fair Trade addr esses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives. Springwood Uniting Church is a Fair Trade Faith Group.

BMRSG was established in 2001 in response to the Tampa disaster and the emergence of harsh Government policy towards asylum seekers.

We are a diverse group of ordinary Australians from all sides of politics.  We urge the Government to treat asylum seekers and refugees humanely and in accordance with the UN Convention on Refugees – signed by Australia in 1954.

Our aim is to provide financial and practical assistance to asylum seekers and refugees living in detention and the community and to raise public awareness of asylum seeker and refugee issues.
