COLOMBO (News 1st); Ambassadors and High Commissioners in Sri Lanka have expressed concern over the Friday (22) morning raid on Sri Lanka’s main protest site at Galle Face Green.
Deeply concerned about actions taken against protestors at Galle Face in the middle of the night. We urge restraint by authorities & immediate access to medical attention for those injured.

Hearing what is happening at the Galle Face protest site. Not sure why this is happening now. It is crucial the authorities act with restraint and avoid violence.

Freedom of expression proved essential to 🇱🇰 current transition. Hard to see how restricting it severely can help in finding solutions to the current political and economic crises.
