BANGLADESH::: Fight for rights continues for workers in Bangladesh

It has been well over a year since the massacre of over 1,100 garment workers at Rana Plaza and still the fight for proper compensation continues. Benetton is one of the major brands that has not contributed anything yet. In an unrelated development, owners of two of the garment factories that were in Rana Plaza were granted bail, raising fears that they will never be held to account for their actions. Meanwhile a separate investigation, has highlighted the appalling working conditions for workers in the coal processing sector. The continued repression of unions in Bangladesh has forced millions of men and women to work in appalling conditions for starvation wages.
