Respect The Judgment: Join The People’s March On 10th January
Lawyers Collective requests all those who value and uphold democracy to join hands to demonstrate, even at the eleventh hour, to take all peaceful steps to stop the unlawful impeachment against the Chief Justice.
We remind all Sri Lankans that this is the first time ever that a Supreme Court decision is deliberately violated by the Executive and Parliament, indicating the level to which democracy has deteriorated in our country.
We invite individuals, political parties, trade unions and civil society to join us for the People’s March on 10th January at 10 am commencing from the Superior Courts Complex. Your participation will make the national and international community realise that the public do not approve the government’s decision to ignore the Supreme Court judgement.
