We demand that Joly Talukder and seven other union leaders of the Garments Workers Trade Union Centre will be released immediately !
We have learned that Joly, the general secretary of Bangladesh Garments Workers Trade Union Centre and other seven leaders of this organization have been arrested and sent to jail today, 1 April 2018.
We also learned that Joly Talkuder is in solitary confinement. This is a monstrosity.
All accusations against Joly Talukder and her colleagues are fabricated lies.
We demand the immediate release of Joly Talukder and her colleagues!
Joly Talukder is one of the respected coordinators of the World Women’s Conference and we protest vehemently against the solitary confinement of Joly Talukder !
We will distribute this protest declaration internationally.
