Pavement vendors in Colombo staged a demonstration opposite the Fort Railway Station on Friday.

These vendors lament that as the government has informed them to evict from their trade locations, they have been inconvenienced. This situation has prompted them to stage a demonstration opposite the Fort Railway Station.

These vendors engage in their trade on either side of Malwatte Road and Second Cross Street.

Although a location had been allocated for them to engage in their trade at Keyzer Street, these vendors charge that it is not a suitable location for trading.
