Working Families Staged a Protest Against Cambodian Government's Brutal Repression Against Garment Workers

January 13, 2014

Deadly violence against striking garment workers has set off a global response by unions and allies around the world. Over the past several days, unions, labor rights activists and student groups protested at Cambodian embassies and consulates first in Seoul, Berlin and Jakarta and since then in Washington, D.C., London and Hong Kong. During the Jan. 10  protest in Washington, D.C., the AFL-CIO delivered a letter calling on the government to cease violence, investigate the violent events, release detained workers and return to negotiations with workers for a fair wage.
