The Trade Union Coordinating Centre has decided to declare a week of continuous protests from Monday to Friday.
The decision was reached at a special discussion held this morning to discuss the future course of action of trade unions in order to overthrow the present government.
Accordingly, the Trade Union Coordinating Centre when contacted by NewsRadio said a decision was reached that public consensus will be sought on the 11th of May for the protests while they will rally in the vicinity of Parliament on the 17th together with the public.
Chairman of the Inter-Company Employees Union Wasantha Samarasinghe speaking at a media briefing this morning said curfew was imposed across the island on the 3rd of April, which he said was disregarded by the public.
Samarasinghe said public emergency therefore does not pose a threat to the public.
He said the working class is prepared to continue the people’s struggle to win over their demands and called for the state of emergency to be revoked.
Samarasinghe said the government and President’s time in office is limited.
