Rally: Call on the GAP to Adopt Real Fire Safety & Save Worker's Lives!
It's been two years since 29 people who sewed clothing for the Gap were killed in a horrific fire in Bangladesh. Growing numbers of Gap customers and activists are calling on the Gap to sign onto the labor-supported Bangladesh Fire and Building Safety Agreement. Join us on the second anniversary of the Gap factory fire to DEMAND THAT GAP ADOPT REAL FIRE SAFETY NOW!
At Gap Inc. headquarters we will deliver over 93,000 petition signatures (https://www.change.org/petitions/walmart-h-m-gap-join-fire-safety-program-fix-death-trap-factories) to Gap management. Join us in this petition delivery and in a vigil and protest in memory of the 29 workers.
More than 600 workers have died in factory fires in Bangladesh since 2006. The recent fire at Tazreen, which killed over one hundred workers, is a reminder of the urgent need for real fire safety NOW.
