Sunny Side Up: Graffiti wall on Wijerama Mawatha
a year ago
The massive protest march organised by university students last Sunday (24) saw the protestors converging outside Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s residence on Wijerama Mawatha in Colombo 7. The protesting university students shouted slogans, hung black flags at the entrance to the premises, and decided to express their sentiments by writing anti-Government slogans on the wall of the residence. The wall was instantly converted into a graffiti wall with several eye-catching statements. One of the key slogans that caught many eyes was “we asked for food and we were given bullets instead” (‘illuve kanna, dunne unda’).
