#3 What's Happening to Garment Workers in Myanmar?1h 13m | Oct 15, 2022
In this episode we take a close look at what is happening in Myanmar (also know as Burma). Since February 2021 the people of Myanmar have been fighting against a military coup, a struggle in which garment workers took a leading role in the early days.
We meet a brave Burmese trade union leader who, on behalf of the tens of thousands of garment workers that her organisation represents in Myanmar, is calling for brands to make a responsible exit from the country and for the international community to impose comprehensive economic sanctions.
