A protest march organised by the Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) citing several demands concluded on
Friday November 27. The march began from Kandy on November 23 .
The march commenced from Kadawatha on Friday morning.was Students of the Kelaniya University joined the march later on. The demands cited by the IUSF are – Abolish the private University in Malabe, stop collecting money in schools and stop issuing vouchers – introduced as a replacement for providing school uniforms.
The students marched towards the Parliament, through Borella and Rajagiriya. However, though the march was
scheduled to proceed to the parliament the police had obtained an order from the Kaduwela Magistrate’s Court to
prevent the march from moving forward from the Polduwa Junction, towards Parliament.
Thereby, the march proceeded towards the parliament roundabout, passing Diyatha Uyana, following which, the
protesting students erected a makeshift tent and held a meeting at the location.
