The Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) is due to commence a protest march today at 1.00 p.m. to urge the authorities to take steps to arrest the police officers responsible for the alleged attack on the deceased Ruhunu University student Susantha Bandara. 

The protest which is due to commence from the University Grants Commission (UGC) is planned to proceed up to the Police Headquarters. The students plan to stage a sathyagraha campaign in front of the Police Headquarters.  According to IUSF Convener Udul Premaratne, students from all the universities are due to participate in the protest march. 

Premaratne also stated that some of the student groups that are travelling to Colombo to participate in the protest were harassed by the Police on their way. (Daily Mirror online)

    Our professor knows the law well to say this protest is democratic just like the one where WW was involved!

    Now, the people's guardian called for reports from all the parties concerned; what is the outcome? What is the conclusion of the doctor who conducted the post-mortem? Is his conclusions or reasoning unacceptable? Why? Are students ready to accept the conclusions of a police investigation, after arresting the suspects, as they demand? Students must understand that there are certain evils that we have to live with.

    You would not say this if the dead student Susantha was your brother or your close freind.

    bash Wednesday, 28 July 2010 04:52 AM

    You can take trucks also to High security areas, like WW did... this will be the test of the democracy that our govt was talking to the UN

    Oh don't worry. The Police will cooperate with the students just like they did with the protest march of Wimal to the UN. No roads will be closed, no water cannons, no tear gas or batten charges and there won't be any road barriers. Good luck guys!
