Type of action: Online action
The World March of Women in Quebec made a video to once again denounce the disaster that occurred at the Rana Plaza in Bangladesh in 2013. The Rana Plaza housed workers in the textile industry, employed by large multinational companies. To remember this tragedy, we have declared April 24 as a day of remembrance that calls for solidarity and global action. The comrades from Québec joined the solidarity chain to denounce the role of transnational companies, especially Canadian mining companies. Three-quarters of the world’s mining companies are based in Canada and operate megaprojects in more than 100 countries, without respecting borders, rights and the environment. The video also talks about the resistance of women and communities to extraction and their fight for environmental and social justice, in defense of life and territories, in internationalist solidarity.
