This week we visit a memorial commemorating the Rana Plaza disaster. It was on Tuesday April 24th Labour Safety Day in Bangladesh, but we were at Quality Tops in Reservoir, Melbourne where a group of clothing workers bowed their heads remembering the over 1,000 Bengalese’s worker crushed to death when the building they were working in collapsed nine years ago. It was a reminder that worker solidarity is International.
Workers International Memorial Day followed on April 28th where again the vow was to remember the dead and fight like hell for the living with the week finishing with May Day Celebrations around the World, we hear some voices from the Melbourne rally outside Victoria Trades Hall voicing their views on why it was important to be there and what the future fight looks like in Australia.
