NoAlibis 5/01/13 Bangladesh factory disaster; Anti-drone protest

imagesIn the wake of the Boston marathon bombings, scant attention was paid to the horrendous collapse of a factory in Bangladesh that killed more than 100 workers. With international workers day in mind, Barbara Briggs of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights joins Elizabeth Robinson to discuss the conditions in the factory and elsewhere that compromise safety daily. In the second hour, Elliott Adams of the Syracuse Peace Council reports on the demonstrations in opposition to drone surveillance and warfare that occurred outside of Hancock Field Air National Guard Base. Thirty people were arrested on Sunday and Adams reports on their status.
