The Fair Labor Association has called for a full investigation into the tragic death of Bangladeshi labor rights activist Aminul Islam. We commend Aminul’s courage and are deeply saddened by his death.
Worker rights’ advocates play a critical role in shining the light on inhumane working conditions in factories around the world. Aminul at the Bangladeshi Center for Worker Solidarity (BCWS), along with other labor rights advocates, have suffered intimidation, harassment and abuse for their work supporting garment workers. This is unacceptable and must end.
