(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - international, Bangladesh: 33 killed in factory fire (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 22 Sep 2016 09:20:23 +0300

Saturday, September 10, at least 33 people died in a factory fire in Bangladesh food packaging. Developing countries are a favored playground for capitalists: cheap labor, virtually no labor regulations and lack of safety standards. All for profit and allow export in rich countries. ---- The fire follows the many factory accidents in this region. We remember especially the Rana Plaza in 2013 that killed more than 1,000 people, mostly women. The building collapsed even as workers and laborers were demanding safer working conditions. In 2012 a textile factory caught fire killing more than 100 women. ---- But these are not just accidents. They are proletarians who were tué.es by the onslaught of a deadly global capitalism. To all those who extol the virtues of industrial and rich countries, these dramas are here to remind them that this wealth (monopolized by a small handful) is made possible by the extreme poverty of most of the world.

That would be a salary in France if he could buy the ready-to-wear cheap, imported directly from a developing country?

Recently, women have been much heard politicians claim to defend in caring for holding that they carry on the beaches of the Mediterranean, but how many have spoken to denounce the condition of these women hidden in unsanitary factories to manufacture goods directly exportable to Europe?

To all those who think that capitalism is the only alternative, we say that the proletarians of the whole world will eventually unite to prove them wrong. A system that abuses and murders a very large proportion of the world population is a calamity and not an alternative.
