The Historic May Day observed today in Bangladesh and elsewhere in the world with a renewed pledge to protect the right of workers. The day is observed every year since 1886 commemorating the launch of a massive movement of works at the Haymarket in Chicago of the United State to establish the rights of eight-hour working day. In the next few days of agitation, several workers were killed. © Monirul Alam
