Quote of the Day, from Bangladesh, where people demanding safer streets after the killings of 2 students by a speeding bus have been attacked.
In #Bangladesh ruling Awami League supporters beat students for demanding road safety. But government punishes not its party hoodlums, but activists, journalists who criticise these attacks #FreeShahidulAlam
Thousands of students, including school children, have been protesting the killing of two students by a speeding bus in #Bangladesh. The government's response? Attacks and arrests: #childrights
#Bangladesh should investigate and prosecute those responsible for attacks and violence against dissenters rather than lock up journalists who document abuse. Shahidul Alam, among others, should be released.
Instead of prosecuting those responsible for unlawfully attacking student protesters demanding road safety, Bangladesh is arresting students and targeting activists and journalists who are highlighting the problem.
