    If you're retired, why are you protesting? Especially when it's an alleged attempt to privatize.

    If privatized, those who retied may lose their pension. That's a fair reason to protest when you are old and vulnerable. If you lose pension, its not only the ,money you lose, you lose pretty much everything. Sometimes, even your children may leave you.

    Belonging to public means the institutions change hand from one group of crooks o another after every election

    they should be protesting not against the privatization as they have now retired. They should fight to ensure they continue to receive their pensions

    Selling public asserts [Including Post Offices] is the style of UNP, don't you surprised they may sell even the public toilets next!
