Sri Lanka major opposition to hold a ‘day of protest’

Nov 23, Colombo: Sri Lanka major opposition United National Party (UNP) has decided to hold a massive protest in Colombo on November 29 naming that day a Protest Day.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake says the protest is against the imprisonment of former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka, takeover of private enterprises, non-provision of relief measures to people through the budget, and undemocratic moves of the government.

UNP has extended an open invitation to all organizations and individuals in the country to join this protest.

The party says it hopes to hold the protest island wide.
