by Ravinath Wijesekara

The Jathika Jana Balawegaya (National People’s Power) led by Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna staged a protest today (17) demanding the government to withdraw the Kotelawala Defense University Bill which is being brought to privatize free education and militarize education.

Protesters carrying placards and shouting slogans lined up in front of the Colombo Fort Railway Station and peacefully protested.

Jathika Jana Balawegaya leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake, Tilvin Silva, and many Jathika Balawegaya parliamentarians and artists participated in the protest. The government is accused of attempts to bring education under military rule through the controversial bill.
