Occupy Wisconsin Denounces FBI Surveillance of Movement
Solidarity Letter for ILA from the Bangladesh Garments and Industrial Workers Federation and the Bangladesh Center for Workers Solidarity
Excerpts of solidarity letter:
To make matters worse, companies like Walmart have refused to take responsibility by stating that they were not directly connected to the Tazreen factory. This is only a cruel joke to our workers in this moment. It is shameful that Walmart, the world’s largest employer, would try avoid responsibility and any attempt to prevent a fire like this from happening again. Your action obstructs their attempt to ignore this tragedy and reaffirms the need for them confront the industry’s issues in an honest way. You are helping to hold them accountable!
We not only thank you for this bold step you chose to make today, but applaud your determination and courage in doing so. To disrupt the movement of goods today will further prove workers’ inherent power within the supply chain. Also, in acting in solidarity you are showing the potential of this power to work across the world and confirming that we are all in this fight together.
Thank you for standing in solidarity with us.
Leonard Riley, Leader of the International Longshore Association
Donate to Keep The Undocubus Running
As we witnessed this year, families and workers joined young people in coming out of the shadows, organizing direct action, and working to spur a shift to address this country’s deportation crisis.
Please donate for the next leg of the journey.
The bus we rode in, affectionately named ‘Priscilla’, needs serious repair. Through our journey Priscilla became a symbol of boldness and perseverance. In the year to come, the local organizing will continue. Our alliances will grow stronger. Our stories will steer the debate further and further toward inclusion.
Please donate so that Priscilla continues to be a vehicle to achieve our goals. Your support today will go directly to the engine work, tires, and external repairs she needs to stay on the road to justice.
