Campaigners collapse on the floors of High Street retail stores across Europe to highlight poor working conditions in garment factories.
Next time you see a frock or top that makes you go weak at the knees, spare a thought for the person who literally went weak at the knees making it for you.
That seems to be the message of anti-sweat shop campaigners who have been staging flash mob style protests at major retail stores across Europe.
The “faint-ins” were organised by the Clean Clothes Campaign to highlight unsafe workplace conditions endemic in South East Asia. Stores included H&M, Zara, Gap and Levis in London, Warsaw, Copenhagen, and Paris.
The Clean Clothes Campaign claim in 2011 alone over 2400 workers fainted in Cambodian factories due to poor diet and overwork. Unions say many more go unrecorded.
