In just 90 seconds, an eight-story sweatshop in Bangladesh collapsed in Rana Plaza on 24th of April 2013. Over 1,100 people died. Some survivors sawed through their own limbs to escape. Out of the horror, the UN set up a ground-breaking compensation and corporate accountability scheme. Incredibly, it’s working – but survivors need our help to get one complicit company to pay up: Benetton.
Billion-dollar Italian clothing giant Benetton refuses to compensate the victims who made their clothes. It’s the only major global brand with undisputed links that hasn’t contributed. So far, they’re ignoring survivors and will get away with it unless it impacts their reputation. That’s where we come in.
Benetton is prepping for Milan fashion week. It’s Italian fashion’s most important event of the year — and our opportunity to create a massive PR scandal. Click to demand Benetton pay up now and save this scheme. To date, 1,006,166 have signed. so we’ll embarrass them in a spectacular fashion week show they can’t ignore. Sign now.
