International Labour Rights Forum Campaign

Reynolds American – which owns cigarette brands including Camel, American Spirit and Pall Mall – is one of the largest purchasers of tobacco from North Carolina. Every year, tens of thousands of migrant workers travel to North Carolina to harvest tobacco. Many of these farmworkers are denied basic labor and human rights protections, and face hardships such as racism, long hours of stoop labor in the fields, harassment, abject poverty and debt, exposure to lethal nicotine and pesticides, and limited access to healthcare.

Give the workers the voice they deserve and sign: http://action.laborrights.org/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=10272
