Rage Against the KNDU Bill
Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) held a protest against the Kotalawella National Defence University (KNDU) Bill blocking the entrance to the Parliament road yesterday (3).
They stated that the Bill would militarise and tear down free education. The protest that was joined by university students, university lecturers, celebrities, representatives of political parties and civil society activists commenced at the Institute of Indigenous Medicine in Rajagiriya. The protestors then headed to the Parliament main road where they set fire to a casket to demonstrate the death of free education. Pic by Laksiri Rukman
