Statement of Solidarity with Bangladeshi Factory Workers

Posted by on May 10, 2012 in Walmart Watch Blog | One Comment

Members of OUR Walmart and Warehouse Workers United have issued a statement of solidarity with Bangladeshi factory workers in the wake of the brutal torture and murder of Bangladeshi labor activist Aminul Islam in April, delivered by OUR Walmart member Cindy Murray.  Islam was a union leader at the Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity (BCWS), a worker rights organization active in Bangladesh’s low-wage garment industry, where Walmart is a major buyer. Before he was killed, Aminul Islam and other BCWS leaders faced multiple arrests, torture, false criminal charges, and threats to their safety in recent years because of their outspoken advocacy in defense of garment workers’ rights.

Show your support for factory workers who make goods for Walmart by signing this petition to urge the Government of Bangladesh to investigate Islam’s torture and murder. Click here to donate to BCWS’s efforts to call for the investigation.
