Unrest among Bangladeshi garment workers

Written by Stacey Dove

Bangladesh - Angry garment workers torched 15 vehicles and vandalised over 50 others in January, shutting down production in all garment factories on the Dhaka-Gazipur highway, after a bus crushed a garment worker.

The workers clashed with police leaving at least 40 injured while turning the shanty Boardbazar area into a riot zone. Nearly 100 factories were forced to halt production.
