One year has passed since the infamous Rana Plaza building collapse in
Savar, Bangladesh, in which over 1100 workers were killed. No significant
change in labor rights, factory safety, or social attitudes has taken place
since then. Factory owners, government officials and retailers in the west
have fast returned to “business-as-usual” amnesia.

and injured at Rana Plaza. The
take place this Saturday, 4/26, starting at 5:30 pm, at the SEIU

event is timed to take place after the Jobs Not Jails rally, and
conveniently located just steps from the rally.
