*No Worker Should Die For Fashion. Tell GAP, End Deathtrap Factories Now!*
*Stand with Bangladeshi Factory Workers by Calling on GAP to Sign the
Bangladesh Fire and Building Safety Agreement!*

Many of the 5000 garment factories in Bangladesh fail to meet basic safety
standards. Workers in these deathtrap factories are at risk every day they
go to work. GAP and its subsidiaries are among the largest producers in
Bangladesh. Since 2005, close to 1,400 Bangladeshi workers have died in
entirely preventable factory fires and building collapses.

GAP is a major producer in Bangladesh and factory workers and their unions
are urging GAP to sign on to the legally-binding Bangladesh Fire and
Building Safety Agreement. This agreement would hold GAP accountable to the
workers who make their apparel as well as their relatives who fear for the
lives of their family members on a daily basis.

Join us on Saturday to call on the GAP to sign on to the Agreement and show
respect to the factory workers who produce its apparel!

*WHERE:  GAP Harvard Square, 15 Brattle St, Cambridge, MA*
*WHEN:  Saturday May 11, 12pm-1pm*
