15 April, 2021Approaching the eight anniversary of the Rana Plaza collapse, safe factories for garment workers still need to be fought for. Please join the social media action next week for the fight for safe factories and to support the demand for a global agreement on factory safety.
24 April marks eight years since the industrial homicide that Rana Plaza represents, killing more than 1,000 garment workers and injuring many more.
And yet garment workers still need to raise their voices to demand safe factories; in the month of March alone, over 40 garment workers lost their lives in Morocco and Egypt due to unsafe factories.
IndustriALL continues to campaign to defend workers’ rights and build union power in the textile and garment sector, and we are asking you to join us in taking action next week.
Here is what you can do:
- Update your Facebook profile picture with a frame calling for safe factories
- Download the attached poster, take a photo, post on social media tagging IndustriALL Global Union on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram: @industriALL_gu
- Please use the hashtags: #GarmentWorkersNeedUnions, #IMadeYourClothes, #RPNeverAgain
- Join our live Facebook debate on safe factories at 11 am CET on 23 April with H&M, ASOS, Tchibo and Esprit
The week of action coincides with Fashion Revolution week, so please support their message of #IMadeYourClothes. You can download material from Fashion Revolution to participate.
