Bangladeshi garments workers, relatives and activists hold placards and participate in a protest demanding that companies sign the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh, Saturday, June 29, 2013. U.S. President Barack Obama announced Thursday the suspension of U.S. trade privileges for Bangladesh because of concerns over labor rights and worker safety that intensified after hundreds died there in the global garment industry's worst accident. Lawmakers have criticized U.S. retailers that source garments from Bangladesh for not joining the more than 40 mostly European companies that have adopted a five-year, legally binding contract that requires them to help pay for fire safety and building improvements.
