“An Injustice Abroad Is An Injustice At Home” – Child Labor: 11 year-old Halima sews clothing for Hanes


Bangladesh is a major supplier of clothing for U.S. companies, including Wal-Mart and H&M, and has been gaining popularity among manufacturers as a lower-cost alternative to China. Dozens of workers have died in factory fires in Bangladesh in recent years. Our own CIA props ups and FUNDS corrupt dangerous regimes in other countries like Bangladesh to keep people too poor, malnourished and frightened to demand their human rights. And then when some brave activists actually do shine light on worker abuses and corruption, they are murdered by thugs in cold-blood. This is what our country is promoting over there. All in the name of cheap labor for Wal-Mart, H & M and so many other clothing industry businesses.
