Almost seven years since the start of the conflict, more than 6 million people remain displaced inside Syria and a further 5.48 million have fled to other countries in the region, creating the biggest refugee crisis since the end of the second world war.

A MUST SEE VIDEO PLEASE CK. IT OUT
Sign on now to get the Government to adopt a national strategy to eliminate plastic pollution in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The world is in a plastic pollution crisis. In New Zealand and globally, our oceans have become choked with single use plastics such as bags, bottles, straws and other packaging. These items – used for just a tiny window of time on land – go on to wreak havoc in the marine environment, putting our precious ocean life at risk.
More and more people within and outside of thetuna industryare finally realizing that their business depends on sustaining fish populations. To truly transform an industry riddled with ocean destruction and labor abuse,Thai Unionand its global brands likeChicken of the Seamust stand up and fight for real reform in the industry.
They must stop using poorly regulated and destructive fishing methods that needlessly kill vulnerable marine wildlife. No one wants to buy tuna with a side of sea turtle or shark.

It’s one thing to talk about the plastics pollution crisis, but witnessing it first-hand, standing on it, smelling it, and talking to the communities that have to live next to it, is indescribable.
While corporations talk, heroes like Froilan Grate and Merci Ferrer are working every day to tackle the plastic pollution crisis with real solutions in the Philippines. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work alongside them as partners in the#BreakFreeFromPlasticmovement.
