Rally: In Solidarity with Bangladeshis Workers at GAP Shareholder Meeting
End Sweatshop Death Traps!
Since 2005, more than 1,800 Bangladeshi garment workers have been killed in fires and building collapses while sewing clothing for companies like Gap, JC Penney and Walmart. Many of these deaths could have been prevented, but companies are refusing to pay 10 cents more per garment for factory building repairs.
Eighteen companies, including H&M and Tommy Hilfiger, have now signed onto a binding factory safety agreement with worker representation. It’s time for GAP to join with them, before the next deadly disaster.
Join us in a protest in front of GAP’s shareholder meeting — no more death traps!
Sponsors of the protest include Friends of South Asia, Global Exchange, International Labor Rights Forum, San Francisco Jobs with Justice, and United Students Against Sweatshops.
