Massive Anti-Government Protest Planned - Colombo, Sri Lanka
Activists called for a massive anti-government protest in Colombo on 9 July, amid the ongoing crisis in the country. Traffic restrictions and road closures are likely. Violence may erupt during the demonstration. Public and private transportation is expected to be disrupted.
SITATA is constantly monitoring the situation for further updates.
To minimize safety risk, avoid areas of large public gatherings or protests. Even events intended to be peaceful can escalate unexpectedly and quickly become violent. Avoid all non-essential travel to Sri Lanka at this time due to the ongoing economic and political crisis.
