    News from Bangladesh vol.2


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Ruhelahmed told me, as to why he has gone to Dhaka, Bangladesh from his current home in Austin, Texas, 'I was born and raised in Bangladesh and actively participated in our War of Liberation as a Freedom Fighter guerrilla. I was wounded towards the end of the war and still carry the injuries in my body. The Shahbag Movement remains neutral and apolitical in characteristic, The protest continues and young citizens have vowed that they will continue to occupy the square until the last of war criminals are hanged. So far the the new generation protesters got some results and it seems that they are very determined to get what they want.'

    The clip was shot on the 14th of February.

    More than half a Million Bangladeshi gathered at the Projonmo Chottor ( generation square ) at the heart of Dhaka, Bangladesh to show Solidarity with the on- line blogger and activist who are demanding capital punishment for the war criminals of 1971.
