1,200 garment workers in #Cambodia continue to fight for their severance and wages after losing their jobs overnight when Violet Apparel #Nike factory closed in July 2020. @Nike #PayYourWorkers and #RespectLabourRights!
It'll cost brands only #10CentsMore per t-shirt to ensure workers in their supply chain won't be left penniless in a pandemic. @Nike, @Nextofficial, @amazon, you can afford this! #PayYourWorkers #RespectlabourRights
#PYW Offline actions
1) Bring workers' voices to the shop with our labels
Print our clothing labels (two sided - print larger than A4 then cut to size) and hide them in pockets and stacks of clothes in the shops. The label contains a QR code which takes you to our campaign page. If you make holes in the labels you can even attach them to the actual clothing labels.
3) Clean clothes, clean pavements
Print put our stencils to reverse graffiti the shopping streets with a high pressure cleaner.
We also have transfer templates for t-shirts and masks! Take a look at our materials or make your own!
2) Posters and Stickers
Print pictures of protesting workers and quotes and leave them behind in shops. You can make them any size, or use wheat-paste to make them stick. Find a cheap printing company or sticker company near you to help.
4) Paint with chalk
Either use our stencils or free hand slogans and quotes on the shopping streets. AchAct’s action shown bellow was beautiful but there have been more low key contributions already!
