I dont think it's a matter of what bloggers or media write/tell. It's about interpreting a series of events using logic.

Then obviously a remedial course is in order. While you are at it, go lookup Occam's Razor.

Here Are The Companies Committed To The Bangladesh Factory Safety Accord
In the weeks since a tragic building collapse claimed more than 1,100 lives, a pact among global retailers to protect Bangladesh factory workers has garnered newfound support, with more companies signing commitments by the day.

The pact, officially known as the Accord on Fire and Building Safety on Bangladesh, originated last year and focuses on expanding worker rights and bettering fire and building safety standards. Now, facing international pressure to take action, numerous retailers have committed to a modified version, including Swedish retailer H&M, the biggest purchaser of garments from Bangladesh.

The pact entails a five-year commitment and requires participating retailers not only to conduct independent safety inspections of factories, but also pay up to $500,000 per year toward safety improvments. The agreement is also backed by the International Labour Organisation, trade unions and other lobby groups.

Eight top fashion retailers fail to sign Bangladesh safety accord
The accord on building safety in Bangladesh has been signed by Primark, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Zara and Tesco
Quote:
At least eight of the UK's leading fashion retailers had last night failed to put their names to a legally binding initiative to offer financial support for fire safety and building improvements in the wake of the Bangladesh garment disaster.

George at Asda, Next, Matalan, River Island, Sports Direct, Peacocks, Shop Direct and the Arcadia group – which includes Topshop, Bhs and Dorothy Perkins – all failed to meet a deadline set by NGOs and labour leaders to sign the pledge.

U.S. companies drag their feet on Bangladesh factory safety
The whole world is outraged over the deadly Bangladesh building collapse, but U.S. companies are dragging their feet when it comes to changing safety protocols.
On Monday, six major companies -- representing some of the largest purchasers of clothes from Bangladesh -- signed on to fund a five-year, legally binding agreement that would improve factory conditions in the country. By Tuesday, four more had joined: Benetton, Mango, Marks & Spencer, El Corte Inglés and Loblaw (Joe Fresh's Canadian parent company).

H&M was under particular pressure to sign from an online petition organised by Avaaz, a human rights group, in the aftermath of the deadly collapse. With the blunt title "Crushed to Make Our Clothes", it has so far gathered nearly one million signatures from around the world.

Buoyed by its success, Avaaz says it is now targeting Gap and trying to embarrass others into signing.

Walmart Names Names: Its List of 240+ Banned Factories in Bangladesh
After the disaster in Bangladesh last week — one of history’s deadliest industrial accidents — some of the world’s biggest clothing makers have signed up to a new industry-wide system for monitoring safety standards at Bangladeshi garment factories.

Some, that is. Not all. Wal-Mart has not signed on to the system, instead going ahead with its own set of safety initiatives in Bangladesh announced today. From the WSJ’s Shelly Banjo:

Wal-Mart said it would pay for safety inspections at 279 Bangladesh factories and publish results on its website by June 1. When fire and building safety issues are found, Wal-Mart will require factory owners to make necessary renovations or risk being removed from its list of authorized factories.

Wal-Mart won’t pay for the renovations but will “expect the cost of safety improvements to be reflected in the cost of goods we buy,” said Rajan Kamalanathan, Wal-Mart’s head of ethical sourcing, in an interview. “We don’t want anyone to cut corners to put workers safety in jeopardy.”
Quote:
Also yet to announce their plans regarding the proposed industry accord in Bangladesh: big U.S. retailers including J.C. Penney, Sears and Gap.

Wal-Mart released a list of all the factories it has already determined to me unsafe. A quick look at the list of around 250 factories, spread through the country but primarily in the two largest cities, Dhaka and Chittagong, shows the extent of the work involved in inspecting all Bangladeshi clothing facilities. Monitoring hundreds, or thousands, of such factories, will be a tall order both for Wal-Mart and for the many manufacturers coming together under the new safety accord.

Aro koto kisu je shunbo !!
Kon dike je jai !!

======================
রানার মা জীবিত আছেন সহানুভূতি পেতে সে সময় মিথ্যা বলা হয়

রানা প্লাজার অন্যতম মালিক সোহেল রানার মা মর্জিনা বেগম জীবিত আছেন। ক্যান্সারে আক্রান্ত মর্জিনা বেগম শয্যাশায়ী। রানার এক আত্মীয়ের বাসায় আছেন তিনি। রানার বাবা আবদুল খালেক ঢাকা জেলা গোয়েন্দা পুলিশের কাছে এ তথ্য দিয়েছেন। বর্তমানে রানা ও তার বাবার দ্বিতীয় দফা রিমান্ড চলছে।

পুলিশের একজন শীর্ষ কর্মকর্তা জানান, সহানুভূতি পেতে রানার মায়ের মৃত্যুর সংবাদ ছড়ানো হয়। রানা প্লাজা ধসের তিনদিন পর অর্থাত্ ২৭ এপ্রিল তাদের আত্মীয়স্বজনদের কেউ কেউ প্রচার করে মর্জিনা বেগম হূদরোগে মারা গেছেন। আবার কেউ কেউ বলেন, রাজধানীর একটি বেসরকারি হাসপাতালে তিনি ক্যান্সারে মারা গেছেন। আত্মীয়স্বজনের সঙ্গে পুলিশের বেশ কয়েকজন কর্মকর্তা তখন নিশ্চিত করে বলেছিলেন, ২৭ এপ্রিল রাতে রানাদের মানিকগঞ্জ সিঙ্গাইর উপজেলার জয়মন্টব গ্রামের বাড়িতে মর্জিনাকে দাফন করা হবে। তবে পরদিন ইলেকট্রনিক ও প্রিন্ট মিডিয়ায় সংবাদ প্রকাশ করে যে, ধামরাই উপজেলার সোয়াপুর ইউনিয়নে আনন্দনগরে রানার নানীর বাড়িতে মর্জিনা বেগমের দাফন সম্পন্ন হয়। এর পরপরই ধামরাই থানার ওসি এস এম আলমগীরের নেতৃত্বে পুলিশ আনন্দনগর গ্রামে গিয়ে অনুসন্ধান চালান। সেখানকার বাসিন্দারা এবং রানার নানীর বাড়ির লোকজন পুলিশকে জানান, মর্জিনাকে এখানে দাফন করা হয়নি। এখানে দাফন করা হয়েছে রানা প্লাজা ধসে মারা যাওয়া এক কর্মীকে। তার নাম রবিন। সে রানা প্লাজার চতুর্থ তলায় একটি গার্মেন্টসে কাজ করতো। রবিন ওই গ্রামের আবদুল হামিদের ছেলে বলে নিশ্চিত হয়েছে পুলিশ।

Don't you think, only an idiot will look for logic and reasoning in a set of coincidents/miracle? Just look for the facts.... And that's in every report; facts like where she was, how much space she had, what she ate, what she did there etc.

Most garments workers would carry buiscits kind of stuff for eating on the job. And the building had markets in first two floors, so buiscits must be in most of the shops... She could walk around and found such food scattered.

Yes, anything can happen.... But why would they fake it. Did anyone benefit out of it except the survivor and some satisfaction for the rescuers, who gets any benefit? No AL doesn't get benefit, rather people would say; had the government been efficient, more lives could have been saved, if we can get her alive after 17 days...

It's hard to believe... That's why it's a miraculous survival story...

CNN reports on a factory that has decent standards and "plays by the rules". A good read.

A couple of weeks back, during the immediate aftermath of the Rana Plaza disaster, I wrote a Note outlining the current position in Bangladesh on employees’/workers’ insurance and the provisions that exist for workers’ compensation under Bangladesh law, with particular consideration of how the collapse of Rana Plaza indicates the weaknesses of such laws and norms. I also makes a few tentative suggestions on how such a status quo may be improved and briefly evaluate some of the reforms that have already been proposed.

It's a bit long, so if interested, please see: http://thebarnecessities.wordpress.c...ere-it-can-be/

I couldn't help but feeling so sad .

May Allah give them enough strengths and money to live well.

Baring their scars with dignity, the survivors of Bangladesh’s factory collapse who had limbs amputated without anaesthetic by amateur first-aiders so they could be pulled from the rubble

As they lay for hours trapped in the rubble, these women felt a surge of hope when rescuers eventually found them.
But incredibly the worst was yet to come - in the desperate bid to free the garment workers, rescuers with no medical training were forced to perform amputations on the spot to free them without anaesthetic.
They were heard screaming in agony as some of the rescuers used butchers knives or hacksaws to cut through the flesh and save the trapped workers.

even though its not on other newspapers yet, but this long detailed news with some facts starting to make sense. If its becomes the truth, what will be our image to our already damaged image to international community on savar tragedy?

রানা প্লাজা ট্রাজেডি : রেশমা ‘উদ্ধার’ নিয়ে চাঞ্চল্যকর তথ্য
মাহমুদা ডলি ও শিশির আবদুল্লাহ

সাভারের রানা প্লাজা ধসের প্রথম দিনেই বের হয়ে এসেছিলেন আলোচিত গার্মেন্ট কন্যা রেশমা। সামান্য আহত রেশমা এরপর সাভারের একটি হাসপাতালে চিকিত্সাও নেন। আমার দেশকে এসব তথ্য জানিয়েছেন রেশমার সঙ্গে বের হয়ে আসা নিউ ওয়েব স্টাইল গার্মেন্টের লাইনম্যান এবং রেশমার এক ঘনিষ্ঠ সহকর্মী।
মাত্র চারটি বিসু্কট ও এক বোতল পানি খেয়ে রেশমার দিনের পর দিন বেঁচে থাকা এবং পরিপাটি নতুন পোশাকে উদ্ধার হওয়ার ঘটনা নিয়ে দেশব্যাপী ব্যাপক রহস্য সৃষ্টি হয়। এ ঘটনার সত্যাসত্য সম্পর্কে জানার জন্য অনুসন্ধান চালায় আমার দেশ।
ঘটনাস্থল সাভার, রেশমার গ্রামের বাড়ি দিনাজপুরের ঘোড়াঘাটসহ বিভিন্ন এলাকায় সরেজমিন অনুসন্ধান চালিয়ে জানা গেছে, গত ২৪ এপ্রিল সাভারের রানা প্লাজা ধসের পর প্রথম দিনই ভবনের ভেতর থেকে আহত অবস্থায় বের হয় রেশমা। তাকেই আবার কথিত ১৭ দিন পর ‘উদ্ধার’ করা হয়। ‘উদ্ধার’ হওয়া ‘অলৌকিক কন্যা’ রেশমাকে নিয়ে শুধু দেশের মিডিয়াই নয়, আন্তর্জাতিক মিডিয়াও বেশ মাতামাতি করে।

As much as I dislike the current govt, I refuse to believe they would fabricate the rescue.

Am I being optimistic? Maybe, but the alternative is too depressing to even think about.

I always thought it was faked right from the start. Other BC members thought i was an idiot for thinking that. I'll wait for more concrete news though.
