As the Right to Unite, or freedom of association as it is often referred to, is still not guaranteed in many parts of the world, Fairfood International is organising a twitter debate to discover more about why and how this is the case.
As part of our online series ‘Open Up’ we invite you to join in and share your ideas and questions next week in our Twitter debate on the Right to Unite.
The debate will be structured in three segments around the following main questions:
· What is the local situation of agricultural workers and labour unions, in Ghana?
This will be a Q&A with speaker Ellis Koomson of the Ghana Confederation of Labour.
· What are the obstacles to freedom of association and how can it be successfully safeguarded?
· What can citizens, consumers and organisations worldwide do to protect the freedom of association?
Your input on these topics is very welcome. We want to know your thoughts and would like to know what you think could be possible solutions.
Date: Wednesday 4 July 2012
Time: 2pm-4pm GMT+1
By using #R2Unite in your tweets, all participants will be able to follow the debate. We (@Fairfood) will host the debate and will make sure all your questions are answered.
