Protests are expected to intensify with opposition political parties, trade unions and civil society organisations warning they would take to the streets over the massive increase in fuel prices and resultant increase in prices of essential items.

JVP affiliated National Trade Union Enter (NTUC) convener Samantha Koralearachchi said yesterday they had organised a series of protest campaigns to demand a substantial wage increase for public, private and estate sector employees who could not cope with soaring cost of living.

“We have organised lunch-hour protests today, tomorrow and the day after at the Government Press, Sri Lanka Railways Head Office, Colombo National Hospital, Kalubowila and Sri Jayawardanapura Teaching Hospitals, Lake House roundabout and the Ratmalana Water Board as a means of sending a stern warning to the government,” Mr. Koralearachchi said.

    Imran Hussein Tuesday, 21 February 2012 05:38 AM

    Its not the JVP, its people with your mentality that taking Srilanka to 70s era while making Mugabes and Mobutu sese sekos.

    Well done. Educate the massed and get them on to the streets. Feel the summer winds begin to blow as the war song is now out of date. Still hear it being sung on and off.

    JVP has bad track record and the people who wants to participate with their protest need to think twice.

    chandrakumar Tuesday, 21 February 2012 07:38 AM

    It isgut wrenching to see the way JVP and UNP trying to take advantage of the oppertunity. What can you do when the the world prices increase for oil?

    kondebendapucheena Tuesday, 21 February 2012 07:55 AM

    JVP this is the only thing they can do for rest of there life

    DonQuixote Tuesday, 21 February 2012 08:02 AM

    Some windmill....the people cannot live and the economy is messed up.

    Anyway I am with them !

    DonQuixote Tuesday, 21 February 2012 08:03 AM

    This has little to do with the world prices and everything to do with bad economic management. If you don't understand that you don't deserve a vote !

    Szozs Tuesday, 21 February 2012 01:15 AM

    No use!

    Get a higher paying job instead of disturbing the others.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 21 February 2012 02:09 AM

    Hope the protestors won't be treated to a "dessert" of tear gas by the authorities.

    Saranga Tuesday, 21 February 2012 03:14 AM
