Human Rights update Sept1-6, 2012

We have three actions for this week. Let us hope to have many weeks with fewer calls to action.  All three of them are single click actions with no letter writing involved.
1. The first action is labor rights related.  Kraft has sacked 5 members of the board of the newly-created independent union at the former Cadbury chocolate factory in Alexandria following a protest over the non-payment of a government-decreed social allowance. 

2.  Help Protect Human Rights Defender Lydia Cacho-this involves death threats.

 3. A labor leader is imprisoned in Ivory Coast.  Please act.
