Humans 'not for sale'

Lutheran World Federation General Secretary Martin Junge shared prayers and "deep pain" after the April 24 factory collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh, that killed hundreds of garment workers. "Every single life has its own dignity and beauty because of God, who is the Creator of all life on earth. Human lives are therefore 'not for sale' and their value should never be subordinated to the rules of profit and competition in the global market," Junge wrote in a letter to Bangladesh Lutheran Church Bishop Arobindu Bormon and Bangladesh Northern Evangelical Lutheran Church leader Paulus Hasdak.
