This Thursday is the first anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, the worst industrial accident to ever hit the garment industry, where 1129 workers died and thousands were injured.
Although almost a year has passed since the factory collapse, the survivors and the families of the dead are still waiting for compensation.
Workers, students, unions, NGOs and other civil society groups are calling for brands to Pay Up!
