• Make Surrey's Tech Ethical
    Every year, billions of pounds are spent by public bodies in the UK and Ireland on ICT equipment including phones, laptops, computers and tablets. Workers that made them likely spent excessively long hours working in dangerous factories. Some are at risk of developing cancer from toxic chemical exposure, which also pollutes the environment. Many sweatshop workers experience violence and are at risk of modern slavery. Electronics Watch is an independent labour monitoring organisation for the electronic industry. Electronics Watch members are public bodies who are coming together to use their collective influence over the industry to improve working conditions in factories across the globe. When joining, institutions write human and labour rights guarantees into their contracts with suppliers. Electronics Watch conducts monitoring of factories on behalf of its members, reporting back about conditions and treatment of works. They then negotiate with global brands, manufacturing companies and factory owners to address any labour rights violations that have been found. Our money is being spent on these products and we're demanding that money be used to eradicate rather than perpetuate a system based on exploitation of workers and inhumane conditions!

There has been discussion around Electronics Watch at Sussex for a while now. In 2016, SU officers spoke to senior management about Electronics Watch and in December 2017 Sussex staff attended an Electronics Watch Conference to find out more about the organisation. However, the University still hasn't signed up. We're asking the university to step up and join Electronics Watch because our money is being spent on these electronic products. We're demanding that money be used to eradicate rather than perpetuate a system based on exploitation of workers and inhumane conditions!

    We cannot afford to construct any new infrastructure which relies on fossil fuel extraction. We cannot dig any new coal mines, drill any new oil fields, build any more pipelines. Yet right now, projected investment in new fields, mines, and transportation infrastructure over the next twenty years is worth $14 trillion. Barclays is a major investor in fossil fuel infrastructure across the globe it's time for them to halt their support for the fossil fuel industry before they crash the climate.
