Oxfam Blogs On Garment Workers In Indonesia

Oxfam Australia has created two blogs based on the experiences of garment workers in Indonesia.  The first is “In My Shoes,” in which Sewani tells her story as a footwear factory worker.  The other blog, “Adidas: Stop Wearing Us Out” is a blog written by three workers who were fired by Adidas for participating in a strike for better wages. You can also watch a couple short filmed produced by Oxfam about these workers, which I have embedded below.

Along with these great English language resources, there are also a number of e-actions you can take through the Oxfam website in support of garment workers.  Following this link, you can send messages to many of the major garment corporations urging them to respect workers’ rights.
