JAFFNA : The Norh East Women’s Collective staged a mass protest against the Anti Terrorism Act bill in all eight districts of North East Provinces on Thursday,April 20.
Participants were women including feminist human rights defenders, women’s organizations and Women CBOs. Hundreds of minority women came to streets and voiced against this tabled bill.
Women said, minority communities have already suffered and are still being oppressed by the PTA and the new ATA bill is more draconian and it will horrendously suppress the voice of minorities, women and the entire Sri Lankans. Therefore they collectively voiced not to enact the ATA bill in the Parliament.
