Child Baton by Munir ur Zaman

A Bangladeshi policeman threatens a child with a baton during clashes with garment workers in Dhaka on June 30, 2010.  At least 15,000 protesting garment factory workers blocked key roads in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, the latest in a string of protests over low wages and poor conditions. Police fired tear gas and used water cannons to disperse the workers, who sew clothes for some of the top names in Western retail, after they blocked a major intersection in the north of the city.

    Great Munir…

  2. I can not see any more brutality or aggression by those stupid polices. They have crossed the boundaries as human beings and now is their time to get repaid. Welldone Munir bhai, your photos always speak a lot.
