    It’s a primary task of any government to protect human rights, not to violate them.
    M. Mishu deserves her feedom.

  2. Dr Akhter Sobhan khan Masroor Dr Akhter Sobhan khan Masroor

    I demand immediate release of Moshrefa Mishu. I also condemn oppression to garment workers, demanding full fire safety in the industry,trade union rights and immediate implemetation of pay commision.

  3. If Moshrefa Mishu inspired garments workers to vocal for their rights. That’s the voice of millions of workers in and around the world. I believe people who claim them self human, can not be depart with her fight and struggle for justice.

  4. Rumana Hashem Rumana Hashem

    Mishu’s arrest, and most shamefully, unlawful remand helps us see the fascist face of the ruling regime once again. Shame on this fascist rulers. Shame on the perpetrators. Silencing people must stop!
    Please add my name to your list and let us know what else can we do from abroad.

    Moshrefa Mishu must be released. Speech and assembly are rights of all citizens, and safe working conditions and living wages are rights of all workers.
    In solidarity,

    Solidarity greetings from the Socialist Party east London branch. We will do all we can to publicise this outrageous victimisation against Mishu and all other detained garment workers who are fighting for basic human rights: a living wage, decent working conditions and trade union rights. Your fight is our fight and we stand together.

  8. Grace Stubel Grace Stubel

    Moshrefa Mishu’s arrest is an injustice to us all, as is any violation of human rights, like these intolerable working conditions and wages. They must be changed, and Moshrefa Mishu must be released.

  9. R. Kempers, the Netherlands R. Kempers, the Netherlands

    I heartfully support the statement against the unlawful arrest of garment workers leader Moshrefa Mishu, and all garment workers, who have either been arrested or are being intimidated and persecuted, for protesting against non-implementation of promised wage increases.
    I happen to know Mishhu myself and met her a few times. She should be released immediately, in my view this is not the way a government should react on abuses in the garment sector, especially on human rights, working conditions and labour agreements.
    It should be realized by the government too that these kind of actions is negatively impacting internationally on the garment industries in the long end as also consumers will be informed about these unjust situations. Therefore the government is obliged to keep the industry owners to the laws and agreements which have been reached before.
