Bangladesh: textile workers on strike


Bangladesh textile workersFrom Stephanie McMillan’s blog in the USA:

I drew this cartoon over the weekend, before I read the article below which explains that not only the importer/retailers, but also their governments, reap huge amounts of wealth from the products made by exploited workers in Bangladesh and other countries, through tarrifs and taxes.

That appropriated wealth goes to whatever it is our governments spend money on: infrastructure, perks for politicians, tax refunds for rich corporations, subsidized agriculture, wars, etc.

This article explains how that happens, and why the workers rebelled recently in Dhaka.

It was sent to me by its author Anu Muhammad, journalist and editor of Megh Barta, an online progressive journal based in Dhaka; and Professor of Economics at Jahangeer Nagar University, Dhaka.

Why the Workers Became So Audacious?

  1. APPEAL FOR JUSTICE TO SAVE FROM OPPRESSIVE LAWS

    Dear Sir
    From 1972 after independent ,Bangladeshi Nationals started to Established Industries investing family resources ,adopting innovative technology as SELF EARNER & to create job for million of unemployed as well as to achieve economic freedom when everything were damaged and leftover .
    Government also started helping these fast growing PRIVATE SECTOR INDUSTRIES having fund from International Grant or Loan Giving Agencies and distributed through different Bank. From 1980 period..
    But unfortunately Owner of Industries becomes helpless victims of deep rooted conspiracy & Anti Propaganda .. The Bank Official refrain themselves from ascertaining production capacity of imported machineries and to provide required working capital loan in time extending non-cooperation, negligence or even were reluctant to receive back their loan money if any Industrial Owner decided to pay back the entire bank loan for non-banking activities .These have been done willingly to Jeopardize the Government Decision of Privatizations as well to occupy the mortgaged properties of the Owner of Industries of Bangladesh
    Hundreds & Thousand of Industries in Bangladesh have been destroyed by Bank Officials & Policy Maker who are not aware of First Changing Technology of present time. even.
    Over and above Capitalizing the Illiteracy, Ignorance and Extreme Poverty of majority of Bangladesh Citizen Every things have been forced upon the Owner of Industries of PRIVATE SECTOR in co-operation with their alliance , who are always interested to make Bangladesh a bottom less country.
    Due to Such Conspiracy , Negligence’s , Fraudulent Activities including Non – Banking Activities of Bank Official & Policy Maker, Most of these Industries have became in-operative & have lost their Cash Capital, Expatriate Capabilities. And became helpless victims of oppressive laws
    In 1992 &1996 the Sick Industries Rehabilitation Cell were formed by GOVERNMENT OF BANGLADESH & have Identified and Registered these Industries as SICK INDUSTRIES declaring not as defaulter but victims of Violation of Contract, Negligence, Fraudulent Activities, Malpractices of Bank Officials including Policy Maker.
    LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY in different Organization of Bangladesh are no more hidden matter till date .
    THE OWNER OF THE INDUSTRIES OF BANGLADESH ARE LOOKING VERY HELPLESSLY FOR JUSTICE BUT THE DOOR OF JUSTICE ARE CLOSED FOR UNKNOWN REASONS.
    The owner of Industries of Bangladesh are deprived of Legal Right due to enactment ARTHA RIN ACT ACT ( Money Landing Act ) on 1989 which were amended several time on 2003 and 2007. The Bankruptcy Act of 1997 treating the OWNERS OF INDUSTRIES as like as SLAVE of COLONIAL PERIOD When the Hands of the Producer and Technician of Muslin Fabrics ( which were only produced in UNDIVIDED BENGAL ) were cut down

    But these laws are not applicable in Nationalized Sector where billions of US Dollars are invested, till today and are unaccounted
    Total outstanding Defaulted Bank Loan are about 60 to 70 % lying with Government Sector / Nationalized Concern . And less then 10 % Bank loan are lying with Small & Medium Size Industries of Private Sector.
    And Bank Official can explain well about the balance of the remaining out standing Loan.

    LAW OF TORTS and LAW OF CONTRACT ARE MOST COMMON LAW IN ALL COUNTRY and even in our NEIGHBOURING COUNTRY Like INDIA , BUT NOT APPLICABLE IN BANGLADESH YET DUE TO WHICH BANGLADESH HAS BECOME A HEAVEN FOR REPRESSION / EXPLOITATION forcing the Process of increasing – Poverty line in Geometric Ration and also helping HUMAN TRAFFICKING in large scale.
    OWNER OF INDUSTRIES OF PRIVATE SECTOR CAN NOT CLAIM ANY COMPENSATION OR SET OFF on the Suit filed by the Bank Official or Loan Giving Agencies under Artha Rin Act , 2003 FOR VIOLATION OF CONTRACT, NEGLEGIENCES, MALPRACTICES, including fraudulent activities of Bank officials instead of huge loss and damages although Bangladesh is known as DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY

    The present condition OF SICK / DISTRESSED INDUSTRIES are deplorable due to lack of Accountability of Bank Official / Policy Maker & Indemnity offered to Bank Official / Loan Giving Agencies These have been done to hide out existing high profile Malpractices, Corruption and Fraudulent Activities & Negligence as per opinion of Expert Personals depriving the Owner of Industries from Justice

    Also Common PEOPLE WHO ARE FACING ANOTHER TYPE OF REPRESSIVE LAW UNDER CERTIFICATE CASE for realization of Taxes , Agricultural Loan , including Weaver’s Loan etc.

    OWNER OF INDUSTRIES can only file a separate suit for compensation in separate CIVIL COURT CREATING MORE complicacy for life long litigation WITH OF NO RESULT .
    Due to restriction to obstruct or resist any order / decree of ARTHA RIN ACT / COURT by any other DECREE OR ORDER OF ARTHA RIN COURT or even of by HIGHER COURT. THE RIGHT OF EQUITY OF LAW HAVE COMPLETELY BEEN DENIED TO THE INDUSTRIAL ENTREPRENEUR OF PRIVATE SECTOR IN BANGLADESH .
    But in India for recovery of defaulted Bank Loan there are separate law known as D R T ( DEBT RECOVERY ACT ) in which The Owner of the Industries or any Borrowers can claim set off or can claim compensation for the violation of contract , negligences , fraudulent activities including malice or malafide activities of Bank officials

    Now there are no other alternative way but to draw the kind attention of Concerned Authority Including International Community / Organizations seeking help for JUSTICE and Support to save & protect the OWNER OF SICK OR DISTRESSED INDUSTRIES OF Bangladesh under Private Sector, including their properties from such deep rooted conspiracy and oppressive laws as well to protect the interest of large number of workers, staffs of the Private Sector and also for CHANGE of such oppressive laws to restore Accountability of Bank Official / Loan Giving Agencies including Policy Maker to ensure greater Interest of The Nations
