The Occupy Movement is now in Dhaka. On October 22, activists of different stripes gathered at the Teachers-Students Centre of the University of Dhaka and held its Occupy Dhaka programme in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street. 

The participants, hailing from university professors, students, intellectuals, and members of the general public, protested against financial corruption, capitalism and the large gap between the rich and the poor.

Some of the slogans used in the Occupy Dhaka were: "We won't let peoples' Bangladesh be multinationals' Bangladesh," "We are against the exploitation and looting of multinational financing," "Stop commercialization of education," "Garment workers be given the minimum wage," and "Save the national resources of oil, gas and coal."
