New Justice for Bangladesh

As part of a coalition of Churches, representatives from the Methodist Church will attend a launch at Methodist Central Hall on 5 September to tackle the issue of workers' rights. The meeting follows the collapse of the nine-storey Rana Plaza in Savar, Bangladesh where over 1,127 people were killed exactly four months ago tomorrow.

Look out for a press release about the event next week. Listen to Steve Pearce, Partnership Coordinator for Asia and the Pacific, talking about the issue in this podcast. Also, keep an eye out for the hashtags #Lookbehindthelabel #garmentworkers #Bangladesh on social media in the run-up to the launch.
