Sweatshop Fire: Outrage in Bangladesh as Few Arrests are Made

• Common Dreams
 Industrial workers from the Bangladesh garment industry continue to demand justice in the face of widespread abuse, as labels from leading western brands are found in the rubble of the record sweatshop fire that killed 112 workers on Saturday.
Bangladesh police fired rubber bullets, tear gas and jets of hot water from a water cannon to disperse the crowd of over 3,000 who gathered for a third day Wednesday in the streets just outside the capital of Dhaka, demanding justice for the fire victims and the arrest of the Tazreen Fashions Ltd. factory owner, a police official told Agence France-Presse.
