Myanmar Solidarity Campaign: Fight like a garment worker

The Clean Clothes Campaign, of which MSN is a member, is supporting the #fightlikeagarmentworker solidarity campaign for Myanmar’s garment workers, organised by #Sisters2Sisters and JASS Southeast Asia, in collaboration with Solidarity Trade Union of Myanmar (STUM). The aim is to mobilise global solidarity with garment workers in Myanmar and ensure their voices aren’t silenced or forgotten.

The campaign is underway, running during the 16 days of activism following the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25 and wrapping up on December 10.

How to support:

  • Join the online panel event that will be held on Sunday, December 5 at 7:30am Eastern time (1.30pm CET / 7pm MMT). Daw Myo Aye, leader of Solidarity Trade Union of Myanmar, will be speaking, alongside Mimmy Kowel of CCC, discussing impunity in the garment industry. The panel discussion will be shown live via CCC’s facebook page and Sister2Sister Myanmar’s facebook page.
  • Post on social media using the hashtags #FightLikeAGarmentWorker, #Letters2Sisters #Myanmar and #WhoMadeMyClothes.

  • Take a photo of yourself holding any garment, with three fingers raised, including these demands (in text accompanying the post or on a sign): 1. End Impunity Culture in the Garment Industry, 2. Respect Women and Workers Rights, 3. We will all #FightLikeAGarmentWorker. Post the photo on social media with a message to Myanmar’s garment workers, tagging #Letters2Sisters and #WhoMadeMyClothes #Myanmar.
