The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Between Past and Present

Benedetta Grasso (March 31, 2010)

99 years after the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire many people gathered for a moving commemoration and a series of educational events to inspire everyone to create a safer and better world.
The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire ( March 25, 1911) was the largest industrial disaster in the history of New York, causing the death of 148 garment workers (Jewish and Italian women) who either died from the fire or jumped to their deaths. It was the worst workplace disaster in the City until September 11, 2001.

Also, we did present Bella Ciao in a revolutionary stance, for me, vocalizing in English , "You must bury me" was particularly astonishing feeling.

JOE ZITO, the hero of heroes of the Triangle Fire, is still in an unmarked grave.

"Tu mi devi seppelire"

Our work in 2010 is nowhere near done.

Yes revolutionary.

this day of remembrance is much needed, especially considering the strides we still need to make in the garment industry today, and how many women an children are still subject to these bad conditions and dangers in the workplace.
