Student protest to go ahead despite Court ruling – Weerasekara

The protests that were organized against the functioning of the Private Medical School in Malabe will be held today (17), at 11.00 am.

The convener of the protest, Lahiru Weerasekara stated that although a court order was passed against the staging of this particular protest, supporters are still not willing to back down and will continue.

He further added that the students will engage in the protests until a suitable solution is provided by the government.

Weerasekara stated that the government’s decision to protect private higher education systems, the deduction in the number of students enrolled and the reduction of public grants, being a few of the reasons for the cause of the protest.
