Incredible Bangladeshi garment workers hold boss hostage for promised bonuses in an act of desperationOctober 15, 2013
Minimun-wage workers in a garment factory in Bangladesh finally extracted a long-promised bonus from their boss after holding him captive in the factory for over 18 hours.
The factory boss — who was unharmed — had held back payment of worker bonuses for the Eid al-Adha holiday. Unions are celebrating the success of the bold worker action as a “positive development” in the context of a long fought labor dispute.
The workers forced their way into the office of owner Delwar Hossain and locked him in when he said no money was available.
Police, relatives of the owners and the factory owners’ group, the BGMEA, launched talks with the protesters and a police official said Hossain was released after bonuses were paid to 900 workers late on Sunday.
“I see it as a positive movement as the workers were not violent and were able to realize their demand peacefully,” said Amirul Haque Amin, president of the National Garment Workers’ Federation trade union.

This past Tuesday, October 1, 2013, a group of over 20 Ole Miss football players and their friends nearly shut down the Theatre department’s performance of The Laramie Project, a play based on the murder of Matthew Shepard, killed for being LGBTQ. The majority of the audience member not only shouted slurs such as “faggot,” and laughed during serious scenes, but photographed members of the audience and verbally harassed the cast members.Ole Miss has made no official statement other than to say, “they’re working on it,” and the Athletics Department will say nothing other than the students “didn’t know they were representing the school.” The only punishment for the students so far has been to apologize, and it was insincerely done.This is hate speech, and my school is doing nothing about it. They did nothing when white students literally ran a black student off of campus by keying KKK signs into his dorm room door & truck, and they are doing nothing now to protect and ensure a safe school environment for their LGBTQ students.Please, if you can share this, do so. Ole Miss has a habit of brushing away the bad things that happen on campus because they’d rather make money and win football games than actually care about their minority students.To voice your concern:Daily Mississippian School Newspaper Email: dmeditor@gmail.com Dean of Students Phone: (662) 915-7248Dean of Students Email: deanst@olemiss.eduAthletics Department Phone: (662) 915-7241
