Local News Update: A location reportedly has been designated as an’ Agitation Location’ near the Galle Face Green, Colombo. In the recent past, it has been a common sight that continuous protest protests during Colombo disturb the public.
As protesters select crowded public areas such as Lotus Road in Colombo, Galle Face Green, Town Hall and Lipton Roundabout to hold their demonstrations, vehicular traffic and daily life are largely affected.
In addition, the general public and the protesters become victims of anti-riot measures such as road closures, water cannon firing and tear gas to disperse protesters.
This way, a dedicated location for protests and demonstrations was reserved in this context.
