COLOMBO (News 1st); The Socialist Youth Union launched a massive protest march in Colombo on Friday (18) morning with the participation of thousands of its members, against many decisions made by the Sri Lankan Government, which they term as detrimental to the well being of her citizens.

The protest march commenced from the Technical Junction in Maradana, and the Socialist Youth Union is attached to the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna.

These protestors are demanding the Sri Lankan Government end the shortage of fuel and gas, terminate the agreements that handed over the Trincomalee Oil Tank Complex to India, and the transfer of shares of the Yugadhanavi Power Plant to US-based new Fortress Energy Inc.

The protest is heading towards the Fort Railway Station, in the heart of Colombo, and one of the busiest main roads in the city.
