Sign this petition to demand justice for 28 Bangladeshi strawberry pickers who were shot when they asked for their wages.
Instead of holding the farmer accountable for this disgusting crime, a Greek court has cleared the farm owner and head foreman of all charges.
In the wake of the Rana Plaza tragedy where 1,129 Bangladeshi garment workers died and hundreds were injured, the acquittal of these farmers who shot 28 Bangladeshi strawberry pickers when they asked for months of unpaid wages is more proof that people seem to think of Bangladeshis as subhumans to be treated literally worse than animals. Demand the Greek government jail the Greek farmers!
The fact that an EU country like Greece could allow people to shoot with not even a reasonable motive -- again, the Bangladeshi workers were simply looking for 6 months of unpaid backpay-- and then to walk free makes a mockery of the whole institution.
Unless the EU wants a "wild west, shoot at first disagreement" mentality to spread (just what the recent verdict encourages), it needs to sanction Greece for turning a blind eye on what was essentially an "I'll kill you if you complain" work environment for migrants!
Tell Greece to jail farmers who have admitted to shooting Bangladeshi workers!
Thank you for your time!
I am writing this as a protest against Greek farmers who shot 28 Bangladeshi farmers being able to walk free. The workers endured slavery of the worst kind, something that has no place in our supposed peaceful democracy in the EU.
