Vote for Fair Trade (Vote4FT) has already found prominent supporters

Ahead of the European Parliament elections taking place in May 2014, the Fair Trade Advocacy Office (FTAO) already met with several candidates to ensure their support for Fair Trade. The Fair Trade manifesto has already been endorsed by a dozen of candidates from seven countries including Belgium, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, the UK. Seven of them explain their support in short videos that can be seen here. The campaign is truly cross-party and has already found support in almost all of the main European political families in the Parliament: the European People’s Party, the Party of European Socialists, the European Green Party and the Party of the European Left.

All Fair Trade organisations involved in the Vote4FT campaign will continue to carry out activities to broaden the support of Fair Trade in the next European Parliament. In Belgium for example, Oxfam Magasins du mondetogether with the FTAO organised a debate with francophone Belgian candidates from the main political families (read here an article about the event). Other events will soon take place in France and Austria.
