SIGN THE CHICKEN DUMPING
PETITION NOW!

CLICK HERE >

The FairPlay movement is a new, principle-based global initiative whose sole interest is in making available international experts to help stop the proliferation of dumping worldwide.



The problem: The South African chicken industry is in crisis.


The cause: Unprecedented volumes of surplus chicken from abroad are being dumped in this country.


The results: Thousands of jobs have been lost, and many thousands more are threatened, as larger producers cut production and smaller ones go out of business.


The future: There have been warnings that the industry might not survive beyond December 2017 if dumping continues at the current rate. A modern and efficient industry that creates jobs for some 110 000 people is being devastated. Another 20 000 jobs may be at risk in related industries. Entire communities are under threat as job losses loom. Families are in trouble as dumping destroys breadwinners’ livelihoods.


Taking a stand: We are calling for FairPlay – this is how we stand together and fight dumping.

CRY FOR ACTION PETITION

We, the undersigned concerned citizens, poultry workers, and retrenched poultry workers of South Africa most urgently make this Cry for Action appeal directly to you President Jacob Zuma and you Mr. Rob Davies, Minister of Trade and Industry, to take all the necessary steps now that will forever end the predatory practice of dumping of chicken onto our market in South Africa.

We make this Cry for Action appeal for the estimated 6 000 workers who have already lost their jobs and for their dependents, up to 60 000 people, who are suffering the terrible consequence of poverty and social isolation.

We make this Cry for Action appeal for the 110 000 poultry workers whose jobs are under severe threat and we make this Cry for Action appeal on behalf of the 20 000 grain workers whose jobs depend on the poultry industry.

We make this Cry for Action appeal for the dependents – up to 1.1million of them – who rely on the wages that come into the homes of poultry workers each week and provide food, shelter, light, heat, education, health care and hope for the future.

We make this Cry for Action appeal to you Mr President and you Mr Davies in the solemn hope that you will act now and save our industry from the claws of the dumping predators who would turn our vibrant South Africa poultry industry into a broken, empty shell.

We say NO TO DUMPING, but only you can make this happen.

This is our
Cry for Action

Cold Chicken War

This video is a great exposition of the machinations of international trade and highlights the absolute duplicity of powerful nations when it comes to protecting their own interests and exploiting the interests of others. It is particularly apt in light of the fight for survival of the South African chicken industry against unlawful dumping of chicken into South Africa particularly by EU countries.
