Remembering Rana Plaza

Tuesday 24th April, is the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster where 1134 people died in an horrific factory building collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Part of our activism is making sure the women who died that day are never forgotten. On Tuesday we want to stand together across the country and remember Rana Plaza workers. Instead of holding a physical vigil we are going to do it on the internet. Are you in?

How to take part in the Facebook Live vigil 

Take 5 minutes to make a sign that you would take to a demo with your message on it, then stand somewhere and go facebook live for 30 seconds, holding silence to remember Rana Plaza workers who made our clothes. (Here’s how to use facebook live incase you’ve not done it before.) If you want to do your facebook live outside a well known clothing shop all the better, but anywhere is fine. Use the hashtags #BangladeshSolidarity #RanaPlazaNeverAgain when you post your video so that we can trace it.

Making sure that workers who gave their lives making our clothes are never forgotten is a vital part of our activism. Their history is our history. Their lives are sewn into the fabric of this struggle. 

Please do join in and tell others.
