    I'm already refusing to buy made-in-Bangladesh clothing, and will notify the manufacturers of that. I'm also planning to contact the buyers at stores I frequent (Penneys, Kohls, Target, etc) that I won't buy B-desh made clothing.

    The major brands - Benetton, etc - which use B-desh to make their clothes make huge profits and could afford to build their own facilities there, instead of delegating it to corrupt local builders/manufacturers.

    Other ideas?

    Nearly 500 people have been killed in the last 12 months or so - that we know of SO FAR.
