A year after factory collapse in Savar which killed more than a thousand workers, activists say little has changed.

    In Bangladesh, its the first anniversary of the factory collapse in Savar, a sub-district of Dhaka, which killed more than 1,100 garment workers. In the wake of the disaster, major retailers pledged to force safety improvements, but activists say many US-based brands have changed little.
