Fair trade is not for sale

One of the austerity measures in the context of the Troika memorandum for Greece in this year 2017, has been to add a tax for the imported coffee of 2euro per kg of grain (unroasted) coffee and 3 euro per kg of roasted coffee.This represents an added cost of around 40% of the green coffee which arrives from the fair trade networks, like the Zapatista Coffee, and a significant increase in the cost of imported packaged and roasted fair trade coffee. This campaign wants to highlight the unfairness of making the fair trade movement pay for the errors of banks and governments, and therefore to develop ways of solidarity and disobedience to confront this new situation until it is finished.
Due to illegitimate experiences caused by the austerity measures, it is quite pointless to continue on the politics of extending more and more taxes to the already weak economy of the greek people; it is really contradictory to focus on the coffee which is a product of basic consumerism all over Greece. Moreover, what is truly inadmissible, is to include in these taxes, without any distinction, the Fair trade Coffee. This coffee is both an important product of solidarity between peoples of Latin America and Europe, and at the same time a main economic tool for the - still small - solidarity economy networks in Greece, where many cooperative initiatives have the coffee as one of the main tools for self-sustainability.

For these reasons, we declare a long-term campaign of full solidarity to the fair trade coffee in Greece and full disobedience to the current Greek Memorandum that rules against the needs of the people.

25 euros for one kg of Cafe Justicia. From this, 12.50 euro will be sent to Greek grassroots cooperatives that import fair trade coffee.

Café Justicia is an organic “fair trade plus” coffee produced in Guatemala. It is grown by Mayan communities in the hillsides above Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, with emphasis on principles such as fairness, solidarity, cooperation between consumer and producers. You can find out more about Café Justicia here:

Your purchase of Café Justicia makes it possible for the needed quantity to arrive from Guatemala at European ground, and later to be distributed one part of these, to the Greek initiatives.

At the same time, this Café Justicia collective order will make possible to initiate a fair trade coffee distribution which will be traded in FairCoin, all over Europe, becoming a first step for creating a fair trade chain, based in the digital currency of the fair economy!

Please take into account that this purchase could take up to two or three months to be distributed to you, as it is part of a bigger collective order which is happening for the first time. You will receive your coffee grained and ready to be cooked :)
