Bangladesh garment workers protest on May Day
01
May '13
Several thousand garment workers staged a protest in the capital Dhaka holding red banners and flags on May Day.

The workers were demanding strict action against the owners of the apparel units that were functioning from a building that collapsed last week killing nearly 400 people.

The eight-storey Rana Plaza that collapsed on April 24 housed five garment units.

According to media reports, many of the 4,500 apparel manufacturing units in Bangladesh have remained shut since the disaster struck a week ago.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has made an appeal to workers to resume work in factories.

She urged the workers to keep their head cool and return to work, as otherwise they might end up losing their jobs.

In the aftermath of Bangladesh’s worst industrial tragedy, the Government of Bangladesh faces increased pressure from overseas buyers and governments to raise safety standards in its clothing industry.
