Crackdown Against Peoples' Movements in Sri Lanka
Plagued with power cuts, soaring fuel prices, and shortages of essential items since January 2022, Sri Lanka is facing its worst economic crisis since independence. The people of Sri Lanka are taking to the streets in droves to demand accountability for the policies and measures that led to the crisis. Despite the violent crackdown against human rights defenders, people are relentlessly voicing their dissent.

Join us at this online public event to hear from human rights defenders who have been at the forefront of the crisis, as they speak about their experiences at the protests and as a part of the peoples' movements in Sri Lanka. The event will discuss the ongoing crackdown against human rights defenders, and identify ways foward.

Speakers:

- Fr Jeevantha Peiris, Protest Leader
- Prashandini Uthayakumar, Attorney at Law
- Amali Wedagedera, Researcher
- Ruki Fernando, Human Rights Defender

Moderated by Debendra Adhikari, FORUM-ASIA.
