Police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse student activists attached to the Colombo university who were protesting on Reid Avenue near the University of Colombo a short while ago.

Abolishing the ‘Ranil-Rajapaksa’ government and the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), holding the elections without delay, and scrapping the latest tax revision were among the many demands of the IUSF protesters.
