British migrant rights activist Andy Hall faces 7 years imprisonment and $10 million in damages from lawsuits brought by Thai pineapple company Natural Fruit. 

Hall's research for workers' rights NGO Finnwatch found serious abuses at Natural Fruit’'s pineapple factory including child labour, illegally low wages, confiscation of identity documents and violence.

Rather than address issues, Natural Fruit tried to silence Andy with bogus lawsuits.

The first of several criminal trials begins on Tuesday 2 September.

Please support the online campaign demanding that the charges against Andy be dropped:

After you've done that -- and here's the important bit -- please try to get your friends, family and fellow union members to sign up as well.

Thanks very much.
