GENEVA — Textile and apparel labor union leaders and workers in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Peru and Kenya were among last year’s victims of killings, assaults, arrests and dismissals, a global survey said.
In 2011, there were 76 labor union activists killed, including 29 in Colombia, 10 in Guatemala and eight in Asia, according to an annual survey of violations of trade union rights in 143 countries by the International Trade Union Confederation. This was down from the 90 trade unionists murdered worldwide in 2010.

"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)
