Jekk ma tridx tħalli d-dinja kif sibtha...

minn evan chetcuti

Fl-aĦbarijiet sikwit nisimgħu dwar ħaddiema fil-pajjiżi fqar li jipproduċu affarijiet bħal ħwejjeġ, prodotti tal-ikel u ġugarelli li filwaqt li aħna nħallsu l-belli liri għalihom biex nixtruhom, il-kumpaniji transnazzjonali partikolari jħallsu ’l dawn il-ħaddiema bil-loqom. Quddiem dawn l-inġustizzji hemm żewġ għażliet. Jew li tħalli kollox għaddej qisu m’huwa jseħħ xejn, jew inkella tagħmel xi ħaġa biex tipprova twaqqaf din l-inġustizzja u tgħin biex ma tħallix id-dinja kif sibtha.

Nathalie Grima, attivista favur id-drittijiet ta’ persuni emarġinati u foqra madwar id-dinja, għarfet il-bżonn li hemm ħafna xogħol x’jista’ jsir biex ngħinu nnaqqsu dawn l-anomaliji u inġustizzji soċjali li ta’ kuljum iħabbtu wiċċhom magħhom dawn in-nies. Barra li ħadmet b’mod volontarju mill-viċin ma’ nies żvantaġġjati u foqra f’diversi pajjiżi bħall-Italja, it-Tuneżija, l-Uganda u l-Peru, hija kienet ukoll waħda mil-fundaturi ta’ proġett partikolari, bil-għan li jdaħħal kunċett ġdid fostna l-Maltin, dak tal-kummerċ ġust.

Mahira Sheikh titkellem ma' Gaetano Micallef

Fit-tentattiv li tnaqqas l-isfruttament tal-ħaddiema, il-Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust (KKĠ) għaddejja b’kampanja biex tqajjem kuxjenza dwar il-kummerċ ġust. MAHIRA SHEIKH tgħid lil GAETANO MICALLEF għaliex huma qegħdin iħeġġu lill-pubbliku biex jixtri prodotti bit-tikketta “Fair Trade”.

Kemm ilha mwaqqfa l-Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust? U fiex tikkonsisti l-ħidma tagħkom?

Bdiet fl-1996 minn grupp ta’ nies li kienu qegħdin imorru barra minn Malta, bħal Sqallija u t-Tuneżija, fuq xogħol ta’ volontarjat. U dawn riedu li mhux biss jagħ mlu xi ħaġa konkreta barra minn Malta imma anke xi ħaġa f’pajjiżhom stess. Raw li fis-suq m’hemmx ġustizzja fin-negozju u ħassew li jekk ikun hawn kummerċ ġust setgħu jgħinu lil min kien qiegħed jiġi sfruttat. U waqqfu l-Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust.
