Fl-aĦbarijiet sikwit nisimgħu dwar ħaddiema fil-pajjiżi fqar li jipproduċu affarijiet bħal ħwejjeġ, prodotti tal-ikel u ġugarelli li filwaqt li aħna nħallsu l-belli liri għalihom biex nixtruhom, il-kumpaniji transnazzjonali partikolari jħallsu ’l dawn il-ħaddiema bil-loqom. Quddiem dawn l-inġustizzji hemm żewġ għażliet. Jew li tħalli kollox għaddej qisu m’huwa jseħħ xejn, jew inkella tagħmel xi ħaġa biex tipprova twaqqaf din l-inġustizzja u tgħin biex ma tħallix id-dinja kif sibtha.

Nathalie Grima, attivista favur id-drittijiet ta’ persuni emarġinati u foqra madwar id-dinja, għarfet il-bżonn li hemm ħafna xogħol x’jista’ jsir biex ngħinu nnaqqsu dawn l-anomaliji u inġustizzji soċjali li ta’ kuljum iħabbtu wiċċhom magħhom dawn in-nies. Barra li ħadmet b’mod volontarju mill-viċin ma’ nies żvantaġġjati u foqra f’diversi pajjiżi bħall-Italja, it-Tuneżija, l-Uganda u l-Peru, hija kienet ukoll waħda mil-fundaturi ta’ proġett partikolari, bil-għan li jdaħħal kunċett ġdid fostna l-Maltin, dak tal-kummerċ ġust.

On Saturday the 11th February, the Malta Anti-ACTA Group carried out a demonstration against the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, commonly known as ACTA. This multi-national trade agreement focuses on intellectual property enforcement, and has been widely criticized for its lack of transparency, the danger it poses to Internet freedom, its ambiguous wording, and for being a potential threat to the trade in generic medicines. Koperattiva Kummerc Gust was a participant of the Malta Anti-ACTA Group and sent speakers during the press conference.

Katharina Beckmann the spokesperson for the event said that Koperattiva Kummerc Gust, as a Fair Trade organization, is particularly concerned about how ACTA could potentially affect the access of vulnerable people to low-cost generic medicines. According to Oxfam, “ACTA will undoubtedly impact access to affordable medicines in the EU and other signatories by curbing generic competition.” told Katharina Beckmann to journalists presents
