Garment workers killed and injured by police in Bangladesh

Garment workers in Bangladesh have been in almost constant mobilisations over the last year against the appalling conditions that they have to endure. Major disaster like Tazreen and the Rana Plaza collapse have been the outcome of an industry that employs millions of workers but is based on brutal and inhumane conditions. At a protest this week, workers were met not only by police charges and tear gas, but also by live bullets, leading to the death of two workers and many more injured, click here for video. The continual actions and organising by our brothers and sisters in Bangladesh are an inspiration to all of us.
