Please take action to support union demands in the wake of another garment factory tragedy occurred in Bangladesh. On May 3rd nine women were trampled to death and 50 others injured when they ran for their lives after a false fire alarm, at a building housing several garment factories in Bangladesh.
On January 22 Chea Vichea, the president of the Free Trade Union of Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia (FTUWKC), which organizes garment workers, was shot dead in Phnom Penh. The Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) condemns this killing and deplores this use of violence to attempt to silence the movement for workers' rights in Cambodia. We call upon our network members to demand immediate action from the Cambodian government to investigate this murder and bring Vichea's killers and those behind the killing to justice.
