Black January protest next week


The Alliance of Media Organizations says it will organize a major demonstration next week against the government’s suppression of the media.

 In a statement, it says the agitation will start at 2.30pm on January 25 in front of Colombo Fort Railway Station.

It has decided to name the protest as Black January in view of the media attacks in the months of January in the past three years – including the killing of Lasantha Wickramatunga, attack on Sirasa Media Network and the disappearance of Prageeth Ekneligoda.
