A demonstration was staged by the Women for Rights organisation opposite the Fort Railway Station, in line with International Women’s Day.

The demonstrators who expressed their opposition against drugs, signed a large banner which read, We reject the drugs, ethanol and casino alliance …

President for Women for Rights, Attorney-at-Law Sumana Beneragama shared these views;

“Even yesterday we witnessed, they took into custody drugs worth 360 million rupees. Today’s economy is blanketed with the illegal importation of drugs, ethanol, alcohol and the casinos. Through this, our male population as well as our children could get addicted… Women will be left completely destitute as a result of this.”
