May 1 Action in Solidarity with Bangladeshi Workers

In light of the mounting death toll — 380 — from last week’s Bangladesh garment factory collapse, 99 Pickets stands in solidarity with Bangladeshi workers, the Int’l Labor Rights Forum and United Students Against Sweatshops calling for a week of action targeting Gap Inc – one of the largest buyers in Bangladesh.

On the #99PKTS Solidarity Swam tomorrow, we will visit Banana Republic (owned by Gap Inc) and demand that Gap sign on to the binding Bangladesh Fire and Building Safety Agreement, which would give workers the right to refuse dangerous work and would require brands to put money on the table to renovate their supplier factories in Bangladesh to come into compliance with the country’s own fire and building safety code.
