A terrible tragedy. I hope that this is fully investigated and changes to building regulations are implemented to stop it happening again.

What more can be written. The owners of this building have consequences they now must face.

The owner of the building has been arrested, trying to sneak into India. He knew the construction was not only illegal in adding 3 entire floors to the 5 story structure, but that it was built with inferior materials on A WEAK earth foundation. He has the blood on his hands of those who died as well as the owners of the factories within the building who FORCED employee/slaves back into the unsafe building. The mother of the building owner died of a heart attack last Saturday morning. That is very quick karma! No tears for anyone other than those who were murdered and their surviving families. R I P

Noted. Well I hope that the searching continues until all of the people who were in the building are accounted for.

Sadly, the fashion industry uses cheap sweat shop labour in may countries knwoing that the conditions are like this. I receive many emails for petitions on different subjects and a surprising number have been to the companies such as GAP have been sent requests not to buy from these places. I do not believe that the companies listed, and others, were not aware of this impending tragedy. In fact, the sweat shop owners forced their employees back with threats.

In between the owners and those companies who used these sweat shops, I hope that all of the families will be properly compensated for life.

I am disappointed that changes were not made after the fire despite calls and legislation but hope that no other tragedy like either of these 2 tragedies can happen again. Sadly, I think that it will.
