Last night I saw an article at the Daily Mail about the situation of child labor in Bangladesh and the real price of 5 Euro jeans. The article focused on the labor practices of the British retailer Primark (which has already been exposed on exploitation practices before).

I didn’t post the article last night because it was late and I was already signing out. Then today, I went back with the intention of posting it and it’s gone. All the links from my newsfeed have been disabled/ deleted and the article is nowhere to be found. Through Google cache I did find this photo still hosted at their website, but that’s it. All references to the article are gone for now. Maybe it will be reinstated later, that much I do not know.

Democratic Underground has a summary and a couple of photos but that’s it. I’m going to put on my tinfoil hat now because quite honestly, this doesn’t seem very transparent, does it?

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
