Zara and Bershka sell low quality clothing, but you buy something new every month anyway so who cares if it breaks? We care! We want cool clothing too but we don’t want to make people work for low incomes, long days in horrible conditions + breaking the environment that sustains us all by polluting chemicals that are used in this industry!!
INDITEX: Your business model is breaking the earth Your business model is breaking your own clothes so we have to buy new clothes. Your business model is violating human rights Your business model hurts women Your business model is only good for one family’s wealth: the Ortega’s
Do you want to be more involved and help us organise this action? you are welcome to contact us: @Julie 0623045288 @Rots 0644481659
