Hundreds of protestors gathered on the streets of Colombo yesterday (8) to oppose selling national resources to foreigners and for the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) to be given authority to initiate LNG power plant operations. The CPC, Sri Lanka Ports Authority, and Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) led the Colombo protests, blaming the Government of dysfunction and fraudulent activities in pushing for investments. 

Some demonstrators held signs that read, “The Government is breaching Tender Procedure,” “Stop selling the country to China for Dollars,” and “Stop selling power plants.” Protesters marched from Colombo Fort Railway Station to the Presidential Secretariat.
