‘Equal Rights’ awareness campaign disrupted by Police .

Campaign in Jaffna
Police interrupted a banner-signing campaign held in Borella, which was one of a series of awareness programs held island-wide today (23rd) by the Movement for Equal Rights (MER). The MER had begun the program entitled “no to another black July”, around 9am in the town of Borella, when police officers attached to the Borella police station arrived at the location and informed them to stop the campaign and remove the banner.

Later, police officers who had arrived at the location forcibly took away the banner, and at this moment are preparing to arrest the members of the MER who were involved in the program.
