Death Factories in Pakistan

Last week 314 (and counting) garment workers died horribly in two factory fires in Pakistan.  They were making the clothes and the shoes that any one of us can buy, that many of us wear - branded with the names of familiar designers.  The majority of the dead were young women who died trying to use doors and windows that had been blocked by their employer.

By putting pressure on the Pakistani government and the labels that contract with these factories we, you and I, can help make a difference.  We can help make certain that no worker, no matter where they work or what they do, ever gets killed by their job.

Start HERE.  Take 30 seconds and send a protest message in memory of those who have died, in solidarity with their families, and to fight for safety of the still living.
