It is seven years since the collapse of the Rana Plaza clothing factory in Bangladesh. Over one thousand workers were killed and more than two thousand others injured in this disaster. During the rescue clothing labels for garments destined for some leading stores in our countries were found in the rubble.
Consumers’ demand for cheap clothing and other goods continues to keep thousands desperate for a livelihood working in unsafe and unregulated factories, particularly in developing nations.
Check the labels on your clothes – where were they manufactured? Let us be prepared to use our finances for ethical purchasing of goods to promote social responsibility and accountability
ACRATH invites you to join in the following prayer for the workers we remember and for those still working in oppressive and unsafe situations.
May our prayer move us to take ongoing action for justice for workers. You are encouraged to invite others to join us in this prayer and action – friends, community members, local church communities, partners in ministry etc.
