Meanwhile, protests continue. This video of a protest by Magic Movement cannot be embedded, but here is the link:
Dhaka, Nov 30 (ANI): Calling for better working conditions in the garment industry, protesters in Bangladesh took to the streets of Dhaka after 111 people perished in a factory fire last Saturday. Police watched from a distance as the protesters wearing Muslim white death robes lay down on the pavement in front of the Bangladesh Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BMGEA). The protest was organised by a group called "Magic Movement".My prayers are with the brave young woman speaking out at this protest, Sabhnaz Rashid Diya, that she will not meet the same fate as Aminul Islam.
This incident has happened before, there were fires before, there were no reports. No proper jurisdiction, no proper um.. there was no law executed through the whole process and the families were not compensated enough. And this has been happening for year after year.
