This is a disturbing, inspiring, illuminating and excellent piece of journalism on the Rana Plaza collapse 1 year ago. I think what disturbs me the most is how this event that killed 1,133 people has faded so quickly from our memory and resulted in only incremental changes to the global fashion supply chain.
Also a great moment to think about our complicity as consumers, and at the same time the complexity of the global supply chains that we live within.
Until you’re about the age of twenty, you read everything, and you like it simply because you are reading it. Then between twenty and thirty you pick what you want, and you read the best, you read all the great works. After that you sit and wait for them to be written. But you know, the least known, the least famous writers, they are the better ones.
A small tribute to GGM … Amazing author and a wise man. My late aunt turned me onto his writing in my teens with Hundred Years — she waxed eloquent about his passion and how his writing pushed you into thinking differently.
