Along with Mizanur Rahman, the magazine also highlighted 4 other climate change activists based in Philippines, South Africa, USA and Honduras.

Mizanur Rahman has served as an organiser of the Sudarban Rakkha Andolon [Movement for protecting the Sundarbans] since it gained momentum a few years ago.

He was critically injured by the police while participating in a demonstration in Shahbagh, Dhaka for cancellation of Rampal Power Plant Project on January 26 this year.

Images and videos of Mizanur Rahman being severely beaten by gun butts went viral on social media, and garnered intense criticism from both home and abroad

One of the leading environmental journalism portal, Mongabay published a report on the incident, and the report grabbed the attention of Swedish magazine the RE:Public.

Quoting Mizanur Rahman, the RE:Public report read, “The Sundarbans is essential for the survival and of 5 crore people living in the coastal area of Bangladesh, and for their livelihood.”
