WHYYOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE
On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed, killing over 1,100 garment workers. Another 2,500 people were injured.This tragedy was preventable.Survivors reported that they had noticed cracks in the building days before the collapse, and numerous workers had told their supervisors that they were afraid to enter the building and continue working. The businesses on the ground floor, retail shops and banks, closed due to these reasons, but the garment workers were forced to return and work in these unsafe conditions to make clothes that we may have worn. Now 2013 is 8 years ago, and you might think this was a one time thing. Sadly no.Just last month 20+ people were killed, and 24 injured fire broke by a fire which broke out in a garment factory in the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt.
