Bangladeshi garment workers’ union leader Aminul Islam was tortured and murdered in April this year. Support the campaign to bring his killers to justice.
More than 1,000 workers died – and the lives of their families ripped apart - when a factory making clothes for Primark, Matalan and Mango collapsed. Demand that these UK high street retailers take responsibility for their supply chains.
There are four things you can do right now:
The Tazreen Fashion fire in Bangladesh killed 112 workers in November last year. Some brands have compensated family members for their loss, but Walmart and Disney refuse.
Aminul Islam was a leader of the Bangladesh Garment and Industrial Workers’ Federation and a senior organiser for the Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity, a workers’ rights organisation. Weeks after winning a major commitment from American clothing giant Phillips-Van Heusen to improve labour conditions in the garment factories of Bangladesh, he was found tortured and murdered.
His killers have not been brought to justice.
Tweet Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hassina and tell her government to bring Aminul Islam’s killers to justice.
The International Labor Rights Forum is running an international campaign to highlight the case and to demand justice.
