The Bangladesh Krishak Samity (BKS) farmers organization is planning to hold a sit-in protest in Dhaka on Thursday, May 23. Supporters are expected to gather outside the National Press Club to demand fair prices on farm produce. BKS leaders have threatened to launch a nationwide protest movement, including road blockades, in June if the government does not meet their demands. Localized traffic disruptions are anticipated around Thursday’s demonstration.
Individuals in Dhaka are advised to monitor developments to the situation and avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
