The Samagi Jana Balawegaya has organised a protest march from Kandy to Colombo on the 16th of April, in opposition to the present government.
The march will reach Colombo on the 1st of May.
Speaking to media today Parliamentarian Harin Fernando said they hope the protest march will act as a symbol of support to the youth currently protesting at Galle Face.
MP Fernando said the protest march will commence after attending religious observances.
He said the protest march will be a historic feat.
The Parliamentarian said the protest march will in no manner challenge the public protest in Galle Face adding however certain groups are attempting to create friction between the public protest and the protest march.
He said the march is conducted to extend support to the youth’s struggle.
MP Fernando said the protest march will commence from Kandy and move towards Peliyagoda through Mawanella, Galigamuwa, Danowita, and Yakkala.
The MP said the final day of the march will commence from Peliyagoda and move towards Colombo with massive crowds.
