Farmers form a human chain in Ghior, Manikganj on Friday January 18, 2019 | Dhaka Tribune

The protesting farmers have informed the upazila nirbahi officer of the developments

Farmers in Ghior upazila of Manikganj formed a human chain yesterday afternoon in protest against local brick kiln-owners illegally appropriating farmlands.

According to the protesting farmers, owners of several local brick kilns have dug up the soil in several farmlands and used it to lay roads on another farmland to allow trucks to easily travel to the brick kilns. 

The farmlands are not the only ones under attack. Government land, in particular a state-owned canal has been filled to support roads for trucks, killing the water flow.

The protesting farmers have informed the upazila nirbahi officer of the developments, and demanded the trespassing and illegal actions stop.
