Left-leaning student bodies have announced a countywide blockade to be held on Wednesday in protest of the attack on their anti-rape long march in Feni.

The attack, which took place at the Central Shaheed Minar area of Feni town at around 11:30am on Saturday, left seven people injured.

The protesters alleged that members of the ruling party’s associate bodies as well as law enforcement officials attacked several leaders and activists of leftist organizations who were getting on a bus, on their way to Noakhali from Feni.

Masud Rana, president of Socialist Student Front, announced the blockade program to be held on Wednesday, while addressing Monday's protest in front of National Museum in Dhaka, under the banner “Bangladesh Against Rape and Injustice.”

Masud Rana threatened to adopt tougher movements if subjected to any other hurdle during their next demonstration.

Anik Roy, general secretary of Bangladesh Chhatra Union, said: "The people of Bangladesh will respond to the blockade the same way they responded to the anti-rape long march.”

Following the protest in front of the National Museum, they brought out a protest procession which paraded from Katabon road to TSC via Shahbagh.

The protesters started the long march on Friday in protest of the rising incidents of rape across Bangladesh, to press home their nine-point demand to curb sexual violence against women.
