Movement to demand

Garment workers staged a protest by blocking the roads at Mirpur in the capital Dhaka. The blockade created huge traffic congestions in Dhaka forcing city dwellers to be on the streets for hours. The protesters demanded that their salaries must be raised or the prices of all essential commodities must decrease. Workers of several garments also demanded their dues and protested against the abrupt sacking of their colleagues.
