People have started to occupy Wall Street for some 4 weeks back as a protest to the support that the corporate houses are getting from the government and the treatment they have offered to the people. The protest has a very close relation with recession in USA, bailout of banks by the state money, failure of the government steps to overcome the recession, no improvement of unemployment situation and no abatement of luxury of corporate bosses.

From initial small presence it is gradually swelling up with days and nearby streets and park are being occupied by the people. They are virtually camping in the areas.

Hundreds of protesters are already arrested and it’s spread causing a headache for the government.

People in sympathy to the movement are organizing protests in different cities of USA.

And now, it is spreading to the other cities of the world from Melborne to London.

Will there be any ripple of this movement in Bangladesh also where people are frustrated over the plight of the poor, state of governance and politics and immunity of the rich?
