‘Platform for Democracy’ today (Apr. 02) launched a poster campaign to promote a public meeting and vigil it is organizing in five days’ time titled “Let People Live and Speak.”
The poster campaign began at 9.00 am from Lipton Circus, Colombo, and simultaneous campaigns took place in other parts of the country.
In Colombo, participants included attorney Sudarshana Gunawardena, coordinator of ‘Platform for Democracy’, United Socialist Party leader Sirithunga Jayasuriya and representatives of several political and civil society organizations.
As the title of the planned events implies, there is a necessity to rally people together to safeguard their rights to live and speak, said Mr. Gunawardena.
The public meeting and vigil thereafter take place on April 07 at J.R. Jayewardene Centre, Colombo, starting at 3.30 pm.
