Protest Against Intimidating Social And Cultural Activists

2013 Jul 18

A group of concerned citizens yesterday organised a media forum on the issue of the use of State media, especially the Independent Television Network (ITN) that uses its air time to stick labels on and intimidate social and cultural activists who stand for plurality and fair play and for their dissenting views. The event was held at the National Library Services Board Auditorium Colombo.
In this video Prof Sarath Wijesuriya, Victor Ivan, Dharmasiri Bandaranayake, Parakrama Niriella and Kusal Perera and Gamini Viyangoda express their views on the matter.
