Kamal Hossain

The redoubtable Dr Kamal Hossain has said he will stage demonstrations outside garment factories if he sees garment workers emerging without umbrellas in the rain. His remark highlights the daily hardships suffered by garment workers in Bangladesh not just at the point of production but also outside of work. And though I reckon Dr Hossain will have his work cut out, if anyone has the energy to stage a demonstration it is Dr Kamal! His wife, Dr Hamida Hossain, has also been very active in the struggle for garment worker rights, and of course she features in our documentary ‘Bostrobalikara’ (premiered on Bangla ATN earlier this month).

I am interested to read also that Mirza Hasan launched his film at the meeting. I can’t wait to see it.
