Whereas we might not interactionally be violating human rights of people in developing countries on a day-to-day basis, we are part of a system that violates the human rights of the global poor. We could do more to help. For example by trying to change unfair practices, by becoming more aware of the things we are buying, by supporting movements for change (like unfair trade rules), and donate a percentage of our income to effective aid that compensates for some of the harms that we have already caused.
