Protests in Dhaka, Bangladesh, continued for the fourth day on Thursday, even after violence broke out on Wednesday when workers took to smashing cars and breaking barricades to show their anger over the fire at the Tazreen Fashions Ltd. factory that claimed 111 lives.
Several groups organized committees and roundtables to draw up specific demands. Organizations like Ain o Salish Kendra, or ASK, a legal aid and human rights organization, have made comprehensive lists of demands, including that the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Export Association submit a report on the incident within two months. ASK demanded that the report include whether the industry executives comply with the relevant laws and what steps they have taken to safeguard the workers from fires.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
