Protest to stop eviction of Tamils from Colombo

A large number of concerned persons from civil society representing both organisations and individuals gathered at Lipton Circus, Colombo from 12.00 – 1.00 pm to protest against the government order to evict Tamils from Colombo lodges, and the forced transportation of over 300 Tamils who had been living in lodges to Jaffna and Trincomalee on the 7th of June. The WMC was among the groups that facilitated this event.
