Bodies washing ashore won’t dissuade protesters


Former JVP MP Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa said, bodies of youth washing ashore at Galle Face Green will not intimidate protesters in a world where technology has developed by leaps and bounds.

He said, such age-old methods should be eschewed by the country’s eighth Executive President, who has become frightened of the continued protests demanding him to step down from his position.

The former MP charged that the law enforcement authorities, with the blessings of the President, have already launched a campaign to intimidate protesters and their family members. He stressed such actions will not be suffice to stall protests anymore.
