This is completely unacceptable.  I get the corporate profit margin, I work in it but there is a line that must be drawn.  More than 300 human lives have been taken for nothing more than the almighty dollar; mothers, fathers, daughters and sons taken from their families for no other reason than the corporations – GAP, Wal-Mart, H&M and Joe Fresh keep a healthy profit margin.

Maybe it is time for the buying public to insist that profit expectations be lowered in favour of a raising of the value of human lives.  Or is that too much to ask?

I will make a conscious effort to avoid any further purchases from the above mentioned companies.  I may not make much of a difference to these mindless money machines but I will make a difference to myself and my sense of what is right and what is wrong.  And on no level is this right, on no level is this acceptable.  These people were not disposable liabilities.  These were people with families; these were people who were loved.

I am sick at heart.  Really sick.
