Bangladesh, Strike, Level 2: Nationwide half-day strike on 25 August – Bangladesh

2022-08-18: According to the sources, the coalition of left-wing political parties led by the Left Democratic Alliance (LDA) has scheduled a nationwide strike across the nation on Thursday (25 August) from 6:00 am – 12:00 pm (local time) to denounce a recent increase in essential commodity prices, including fuel and fertilizers.
If the strike proceeds as scheduled and is followed by enough workers, local traffic disruptions are to be expected. Before and after official strike hours, disruptions are also possible due to organisational reasons. Travellers should schedule additional time for their journey.
