Join the Twitter vigil for Bangaldesh

At 11am on Thursday 24th April a Twitter vigil for the victims of the Bangladesh building disaster will take place. Join us.


What is a Twitter vigil?
I don’t know, I just made it up.

What’s it all about?
I wanted to do something to remember those who died a year ago. This seemed one way to go about it, something we could all do together online.

How do I take part?
Simple – just click this button to tweet the message at 11am BST on Thursday 24th April.

[Tweet “I will not forget and I will not give up until fashion changes. #RememberingBangladesh”]

Will it change anything?
It’s intended only as a moment of solidarity with the people of Bangladesh. However, if you fancy making a nuisance of yourself with the brands who still haven’t signed the Bangladesh Health and Safety Accord or compensated the victims, you can use these tweets.

[Tweet “I will not forget. I will not give up until @gap act. #RememberingBangladesh”]

But I live in [insert name of place far away from UK] so in a different time zone. It will be the middle of the night where I am.
Use a tweet scheduler, such as Tweet Deck and Hootsuite. Or just organise your own 11am vigil with people in your own country.

Tweet you soon then
11am, Thursday 24th April – I’ll be there!

  2. I love this idea! I was just planning on letting my readers tweet whenever they like but having it all at 11:00am is a great idea! I’ll link my post over to your site! Looking forward to all of the actions and blog posts tomorrow. ~
