A massive protest march organised by the joint Opposition parties took place yesterday.
The march began at Hyde park and ended in front of Welikada prison. A short rally was then held. Sarath Fonseka’s wife Anoma was also present, and addressed the protestors.
Those attending the march were asked to dress in black, to protest former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka’s arrest. At the event, the joint opposition parties called for Fonseka’s release.
