SSU marks National Student Heroes Day


The Socialist Students’ Union (SSU) celebrated National Student Heroes’ Day on 20 June.

Commemorative lectures were held at the Colombo Public Library Auditorium under the slogan ‘They Fought for You’.

JVP politburo memeber Sunil Handunnetti, Prof. Hiniduma Sunil Senevi and National Organiser of the SSU, Rangana Devapriya, participated in the event. Addressing the crowd, Handunnetti said President Gotabaya Rajapaksa came to the scene as the hero who would save the country but has now destroyed everything including foreign reserves of USD 7.9 billion.

“Today the majority of people in our country are on the road, some are in fuel queues, gas queues and kerosene queues. People are on the streets in vehicles waiting in queues for three to four days against their will,” he stressed. (AK)
