Emma Watson remembers Rana Plaza
Hollywood actress Emma Watson posted a tweet in remembrance of the Rana Plaza Collapse on Tuesday, four years on from Bangladesh’s deadliest industrial disaster. In the tweet, Emma urged her followers to “consider #whomademyclothes” on the fourth anniversary of the horrific building collapse in Savar that left over 1,100 people dead and countless more maimed in April 2013.

Due to Bangladesh’s status as a major garments exporter, the collapse of Rana Plaza, which housed five garments factories, drew global attention. Two foreign buyer’s platforms – Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh (Accord) and Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety (Alliance) – were subsequently formed to improve safety standards in the country’s apparel industry. On July 18 last year, the court framed charges against 41 accused including building owner Sohel Rana regarding the collapse. Afterward, the court fixed four dates- on September 8, November 17, January 22 and February 26 – to start recording statements of witnesses. But the process has so far been blocked by various time petitions from both the defence and the prosecution.
