Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Image above is a photo of Forever21 garment factory workers on their two year long boycott of the said company. Presently Forever21 is seeking to investigate who is agitating and identify the struggling workers and campaigners to harass and sue them. Despite this the workers are not scared and will not back down. Help spread this appeal and the previous article in solidarity to their fight. Strike, sabotage, boycott, flames to corporate leeches.

Six Forever21 workers (three which has their employment ended) is currently on an on-going court case against Forever21. Please help cover:

1. Court expenses.

2. Personal necessities to those who’s currently finding new work which wont have them paid for a month or two.

3. Medical expenses for the father of one of our folks who’s currently confined in the hospital and don’t have healthcare to cover cost as Forever21 denied them this benefit.
