1.1.2 Activity 1
You have already glanced at Figure 1 and some of the working conditions highlighted by Oxfam in one of their campaigns. Now consider the images in Figures 2 –5 , which have all been used by campaigning groups at various times to convey the message that it is consumer demand for cheap clothing and other basic goods which perpetuates sweatshop conditions.
Figure 2 gives you a sense of the scale of the factory workshops and together with the other images provides an insight into sweatshop working conditions.
Do such images connect with your life? Are you moved in any way? Or are they simply too remote to register in any meaningful manner?
