Ruma Akte is one of Bangladesh's approximately four million garment workers. She is a working mother with a young son, and she is the leader of one of Bangladesh's newly-registered trade unions. Spurred on by the stream of horrific incidents happening in garment factories around her, and inspired by television talk shows watched in small tea stands, she started gathering workers together last year. It has taken about six months, but the Welltex Sromik (Workers) Union is now formally registered and has almost 500 members - and the changes in the factory are visible to everyone.

**Bangladesh : une nouvelle voix pour les travailleurs de l'habillement **

Ruma Akter fait partie des quatre millions environ de travailleurs de l'habillement au Bangladesh. Elle travaille, elle a un jeune fils, et elle dirige l'un des syndicats récemment enregistrés au Bangladesh. Suite à l'enchainement des accidents tragiques dans les usines de textile autour d'elle, et inspirée par des émissions de télévision qu'elle regardait dans de petits bars, elle a commencé à rassembler des travailleurs l'année dernière. Ça lui a pris environ six mois, mais le syndicat Welltex Sromik (travailleurs) est maintenant enregistré et compte près de 500 membres -- tout le monde peut voir les changements dans l'usine.

** Bangladesh: una nueva voz para los trabajadores de la confección **

Ruma Akter forma parte de los cuatro millones de trabajadores, aproximadamente, que posee el sector de la confección de Bangladesh. Es madre trabajadora, con un hijo de corta edad, y dirige uno de los sindicatos recientemente creados en dicho país. Tras los trágicos accidentes en las fábricas textiles de su alrededor e inspirada en emisiones televisivas que veía en pequeños puestos de té, empezó a reunir a trabajadores el año pasado. Aunque le llevó casi seis meses hacerlo, el sindicado Welltex Sromik (trabajadores) está formalmente constituido y cuenta con casi 500 miembros; los cambios en la fábrica son patentes para todos.
