Pro-labour forces today called out for justice over the Rana Plaza tragedy, five years after the biggest industrial disaster shook the world with death of over a thousand workers in building collapse.

In thousands, victims, families of those dead, pro-labour organisations and common people converged on the collapse site at Savar this morning, remembering this day as it unfolded back in 2013.

They placed floral wreath at the base of the monument, a pair of hands holding hammer and scythe, at the collapse site in mourning of those 1,138 dead and over 2,500 others injured.

“Five years have gone by and we still see no progress in justice,” Jolly Talukder, general secretary of Garments Workers’ Trade Union Centre, said at Savar. “We demand quick trial and justice of all those institutions involved with the Rana Plaza disaster.”
