Anti-SAITM forces to stage protest next Thursday

by Kaumadi Punsaradevi

The anti-SAITM movement will hold a protest in Colombo on Jan. 25, says Media Coordinator for the Medical Faculty Students’ Parents’ Association (MFSPA) Wasantha Alwis.

Alwis told The Island that more anti-SAITM protests would be organised at an MFSPA meeting on Sunday (21). He said the government was attempting to mislead the public and the anti-SAITM movement with political tricks and, therefore, a massive crowd of protestors were expected to gather in Colombo on January 25 to urge the government to abolish SAITM and fulfill their promises.

Coordinator Alwis said both the previous SLFP and the current yahapalana

governments had fooled the country with bogus promises and the public should not back either of these parties at the upcoming local government polls so as to protect the country’s free education and free health systems.
