    Tell leading retailers: Justice now for Cambodian garment workers




    The sudden closure of a garment factory has left 208 workers in Cambodia without jobs, salaries, or their legally owed compensation.

    One year later these workers, mainly women, are still fighting for justice.

    The factory – Chung Fai Knitwear – was making clothing for Marks & Spencer (UK), Nygård (Canada) and Bonmarché (UK).

    The workers have been facing a long struggle.

    They stood up for their rights by preventing the owners from selling the remaining assets from the factory, through physical occupation of the factory as well as legal measures

    They have protested outside the Mark & Spencer office in Phnom Penh, outside the Ministry of Labour, and the court.

    They wrote letters to the brands pleading for help and asked for meetings.

    None of this helped.

    Now the workers, supported by trade unions and labour rights' organisations, demand that the brands take responsibility and ensure that they get their legally due payment.

    Please take a moment to support their struggle:

    And please share this message with your friends, family and fellow union members.

    Thank you!

    Are letter writing campaigns a solid revolutionary practice? I'm interested in knowing what the relevance of letter writing to building working class power. Does asking the capitalists to be nicer mean that we will get the revolution quicker?

    Seeing as this is seen as acceptable by an admin, from here on out when I have a disagreement with someone I will be asking them to reference this. If you want an explanation of my views, too bad.
