MIGRANT INVASION

REVEALED: Ben & Jerry’s EXPLOITED Migrant Workers

BEN & Jerry’s took to social media yesterday to slam the British home secretary over her tough crackdown on illegal migrants crossing into Britain via Dover, but the company was rapped for abusing migrant workers.

The Ice Cream company that claims to be “woke” attacked the UK Government last night writing on Twitter: “Hey @PritiPatel we think the real crisis is our lack of humanity for people fleeing war, climate change and torture. We pulled together a thread for you..”

“People wouldn’t make dangerous journeys if they had any other choice. The UK hasn’t resettled any refugees since March, but wars and violence continue. What we need is more safe and legal routes.”

“People cannot be illegal. And, it is enshrined in the 1951 Refugee Convention that crossing a border ‘illegally’ should not impact your asylum claim”

Priti Patel hit back at Ben & Jerry’s with ‘sources’ telling the BBC that the ice cream was “”overpriced junk food”.

The ‘Woke” company was sold to Unilever in 2000, and the firm allegedly ramped up migrant slave labour.

Workers working on dairy farms in the US described a culture of “sleep deprivation” and grave “health and safety” breaches.

One worker, Víctor Díaz, told The Guardian of injuries in 2018 when protesters held a rally outside Ben & Jerry’s HQ in Vermont.

He claimed he had received injuries when glass milk bottles exploded and chlorine (used to disinfect milking rooms) sprayed his eyes.

Other workers spoke of sleep deprivation, because of midnight milking.

Migrant Justice activists protested outside Ben & Jerry’s stores in 16 cities. On International Workers’ Day 2015, speakers at a rally outside Ben & Jerry’s Vermont headquarters described working conditions in the company’s supply chain.

Twelve-to-14-hour shifts, without a day off, are common. And workers have been housed in barns and unheated trailers through long, frigid Vermont winters.

Dairy work is dangerous and workers in Vermont were angry about risking life and limb. Migrant Justice itself was born of tragedy: in 2009, the 20-year-old Mayan dairy worker José Obeth Santiz-Cruz was strangled to death when his clothing caught in a farm machine.

So, it seems that Ben and Jerrys should sort out it’s own backyard, before attacking the British government for cracking down on illegal immigration.
