Mpowered Progress – new project funded by WEA and ESF for June to Feb 2022.

Tuesday 28 April is International Workers Memorial Day #IWMD15.

It is now two years since the Rana Plaza garment factory disaster in which 1,134 lives were lost. Yet so little has changed. Workers’ rights remain atrocious in much of the developing world, and are going backwards in the Global North. The anniversary serves as a reminder that there is so much further to go in promoting and protecting working rights and health and safety across the world.

Over 50,0000 people die every year in the UK due to workplace illnesses – estimated by  Hazards at 140 people a day or 6 every hour.

We must remember the dead and fight for the living.
