Boston: Benefit Show for Bangladeshi Workers and Families (Jan 19)

“The Bands:
Nuclear Special Forces, Chimp Attack, Porn Stars for Romney, Jake and the Infernal Machine, and Patrick O’Meara 

For a night of folk, noise and punk: Written and performed by I.W.W. union members! 

5-10 dollar donation, 21+ 

The donations from the show will be for the education fund supporting children of workers killed in Bangladesh by the Tazreen fire and Rana Plaza factory collapse.
A project of the:
Bangladesh Workers Solidarity Network – Boston

U.S. retailers that sold garments made in the factories where over 1,200 workers were killed, still refuse to provide aid to the families of workers who were torn apart by their negligence.

Since then hundreds of thousands of workers have taken to the streets, demanding the right to form a union, improvements in factory inspection and repair, and a minimum age of 100$ a month, half of the national living wage.

As labor activists, it is crucial for us to do as much as we can to help our fellow workers over seas.

AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL”
