18-party brings out black flag processions 1/11

Times National Desk - January 8th, 2013

The BNP-led 18-party alliance will bring out black flag processions across the country on January 11 protesting the 2007 political changeover.
A military-backed government took over the state power on January 11, 2007 (widely known as 1/11) for nearly two years, during which top political and business leaders were put behind bars.
BNP spokesman Tariqul Islam announced the fresh agitation programme at the party’s Naya Paltan central office in the capital Sunday afternoon.
Tariqul, also a standing committee member of the main opposition party, was speaking at a press conference organised to brief newsmen about their nationwide shutdown.
