Boycott Walmart, Sears, Disney apparels & the US Marine Corps

This woman, named Tahera Begum, worked at the Tazreen Fashions garment factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh. She escaped the fire on November 24th, which killed 112 of her coworkers & injured over 150 others, but according to her husband, she suffers from amnesia & mental illness as a result.

Once again, this photo is not posted to invade her privacy or exploit her suffering but to encourage people to boycott Walmart, Sears, & Disney apparels for using sweatshop labor, ignoring the safety of workers, promoting child labor, & the violent exploitation of women workers. It should be added that activists in Bangladesh reported to ABC News that in the wreckage they found order forms, garments, & insignia for the US Marine Corps--indicating the Pentagon’s support for sweatshops.  (Photo by Andrew Biraj/Reuters)
