Protesters storm The Bay in Vancouver over factory workers’ rights.

Dozens of protesters calling on The Bay to protect factory workers snaked their way through the store’s flagship location in Vancouver Monday, yelling “Sign the Accord” as they marched through the department store. The demonstrators, which include garment factory workers and members of the B.C. Federation of Labour, want The Bay and its chain of stores to sign The Bangladesh Accord — which promises independent safety inspections, public reports on factory conditions and that companies will cover the cost of needed repairs. Up to 100 people rallied outside of the downtown Vancouver store before making their way inside. Staff shut down an escalator in the centre of the ground floor after protesters started using it to make their way onto upper floors.
