Colombo, March 05 (Daily Mirror) - Tensions erupted near the University of Colombo as police resorted to tear gas and water cannons to disperse protesting students. 

The incident occurred shortly after reports surfaced of a road closure in front of the university premises due to the demonstration organized by a group of university students.

Furthermore, severe traffic congestion also gripped the area as the protesting students initiated a protest march.

  • PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATIONS AND/OR PROTESTS SHOULD ALWAYS BE PEACEFUL Tuesday, 05 March 2024 05:54 PM

    Lesson to PROTESTORS, do not block roads. I cannot understand why PROTESTORS have to disrupt others going about their day to day activities, this sort of DEMONSTRATIONS AND/OR PROTESTS will NOT serve the cause, it will ONLY put people off and gather NO SUPPORT for the CAUSE. PROTESTS SHOULD ALWAYS BE PEACEFUL TO GATHER PEOPLES SUPPORT.

    That’s the only way low life people can attract attention! By force and by harassment! Now imagine the new government our masses are trying to vote in?

    Only good thing that will happen if JVP/NPP come to power is that we won’t have these protests anymore. Obviously they can’t protest against their own party

    Nothing Gained in this Protest - Useless Tuesday, 05 March 2024 06:54 PM

    By now these morons should know that the police will tear gas and water cannon them during a protest. Just a waste of time as eventually it will be broken up. Should think out of the box being Uni students and protest accordingly.
