Protestors Call on Gap to Improve Conditions at Bangladeshi Garment Factories

Protestors rallied in front of gap’s headquarters in San Francisco to present the clothing company with an award of shame ahead of its annual shareholders meeting. A panel of business ethicists and human rights experts chose gap as the winner of this year’s Public Eye Award to shed light on the company’s human rights record. Gap has come under pressure to sign an accord to improve conditions in it’s garment factories in Bangladesh after a factory collapse killed more than eleven hundred workers in that country over a year ago. Nick St. Charles filed this report.
