When it was revealed that ANZ had loaned millions to Phnom Penh Sugar - a company exposed for widespread use of child labour, military-backed forced eviction of farmers and their families, the burning of their homes and crops AND arbitrary arrests and intimidation - ANZ chose to wipe their hands and walk away.
More than 1000 families were forcibly removed from their homes - losing their livelihoods, their family’s key food source and their social safety net for current and future years. ANZ did not uphold its human rights commitments before investing, and then cut and ran.
Isn’t it only fair that the profits ANZ has made from this life-destroying deal be returned as compensation to these shattered families?
Join us in calling on ANZ to redirect their profits from PPS to the farmers and families who were robbed of everything and left with nothing.
