In a bid to ease traffic congestion in Colombo caused by protests, a dedicated area has been allocated near the Presidential Secretariat and in close proximity to the Galle Face Green to conduct protests and demonstrations.

It has been introduced by the Police and named as “Agitation Site’. It would be allocated for the protesters to carry out their demonstrations. Pic by Waruna Wanniarachchi

    AND THOSE WHO DON'T OBEY THESE RULES SHOULD BE GIVEN SEVERE PUNISHMENTS.

    Good Initiative by the Govt to reduce traffic congestion in the city roads

    yakopala Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:20 PM

    What about a execution area?

    ANTON Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:21 PM

    LOOKS LIKE A NEW NAME FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL SECRETARIAT.

    Well-done Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:25 PM

    Long awaited solution, really appreciated for putting in action. Way to go Mr. President. You are writing the history in good books.

    rama Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:25 PM

    FANTASTIC MOVE. THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT. if any agitation outside this area maximum force is what is desired by citizen.

    P.R.Kumaran Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:26 PM

    Its a good idea. But if there are more than one agitation per day where will different agitators gather.

    ChanakaJ Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:29 PM

    Good idea to have a contained " protest area". Let's hope they use it!

    Game Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:34 PM

    Finally a good idea! so that the people who work and contribute to society can move on and the rest can stand in the scorching sun without interfering in the hard-working people's lives.

    JIM Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:45 PM

    This is a brilliant idea, more should be setup, tea kiosk soon to follow.

    Anmanpan Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:46 PM

    Shame Shame or no shame! Can with the magic wand and now an empty hand.

    Dharma Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:47 PM

    What a fantastic idea.One step towards empowering democracy.

    Visitor Wednesday, 05 February 2020 03:58 PM

    We can feel now the country is in control and the President is governing the country. Sirisena-Ranil government suggested this but never implemented due to lack of courage or backbone.

    Samson Wednesday, 05 February 2020 04:04 PM

    Good idea of our President. There must be legislation to be tough with those who use elsewhere. Such protesters must be punished

    Shelly Wednesday, 05 February 2020 04:05 PM

    What a good idea, we were waiting for this some time ago, brilliant work

    Gayan Wednesday, 05 February 2020 04:05 PM

    Excellent idea.

    Bus community Wednesday, 05 February 2020 04:13 PM

    Excellent initiative! Protests outside agitation area should be made illegal (law). Most public, commuters , office community etc certainly will appreciate.

    Bulldog Wednesday, 05 February 2020 04:14 PM

    Excellent. This is part of DEMOCRACY. People should be able to say and hear anything without prosecution and violence from the opposition.

    Be Fair Wednesday, 05 February 2020 04:59 PM

    Wow, this is a super initiative. May be the site should be rented to the protesters.

    Expatriate Tamil Wednesday, 05 February 2020 05:31 PM

    This new President is changing Sri Lanka for the good like no one ever expected he would do.Probably there is no such officially declared “protest area” anywhere else in the world, so this is globally a “Sri Lankan first” initiative.
