Clean Clothes Campaign launches 'Facts Behind Fashion'

Clean Clothes Campaign launches a  Review of its Urgent Appeal cases of 2013 and beginning of 2014. The interactive map shows how Clean Clothes Campaign supports the survivors of the Rana Plaza and many other workers in their struggle for safer work, a living wage and freedom of association.
 
The Facts Behind Fashion review of 2013 presents the real stories from within the garment industry worldwide. Workers tell their own stories in videos and interviews and visitors can find out about the conditions in some of the factories where their clothes are being made. The review gives an exclusive insight on how CCC works together with workers, local organisers and trade union leaders to stop violations of workers rights.
 
2013 witnessed the worst industrial disasters to hit the garment industry with 1138 garment workers losing their lives after being buried alive when the Rana Plaza building collapsed on them. The review includes timelines - consisting reports, news articles, campaigns and videos – which follow the set-up of the Bangladesh Safety Agreement. 
 
Workers also reached numerous victories.  After months of 24/7 protest in front of their closed factory, the workers a Cambodian Kingsland factory were finally paid their legally owed payments in a historic settlement with H&M and Walmart. And the Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity finally saw all charges against them dropped after years of heavy repression.
 
CCC took action on more than 30 urgent appeals to support workers in the garment industry throughout 2013. Dozens of companies were challenged to answer to the plight of the workers involved.
 
The maps and cases show the labour rights violations that CCC encountered in 2013, with a major focus on the tragedy of the collapse of the Rana plaza building and a detailed time line on the Cambodian wage struggle and cases CCC worked on in Cambodia.
 
Many of the urgent appeal cases that have been successful for workers locally also set precedents that have had a significant potential spill-over effect towards improvements on a larger scale: victories gave inspiration to workers facing similar issues in other workplaces.
