1,138 dead and over 2,000 injured #payup Benetton
It is one year since Rana Plaza collapsed and 1,138 people lost their lives and over 2,000 more were injured. Nothing can replace the loved ones lost, or erase the trauma both physical and mental suffered by the survivors, but they should not have to have the extra burden of not having their financial losses at least covered.
The Rana Plaza Arrangement is an unprecedented coordinated approach which will ensure all those who have suffered due to the collapse will receive payments to cover loss of income and medical costs.
US$40 million is needed in the Arrangement Trust fund. The claims process has begun. Now we are calling with the Clean Clothes Campaign and People & Planet on the United Colors of Benetton to pay up immediately. Join us in calling on them to act.
