The All Island Govi Jana Sammelanaya has commenced a protest demonstration in Lipton Circus, Colombo, against the slashing of the fertilizer subsidy.

The collective is also calling for several demands including a call to rectify the injustices they are facing due to 2016 Budget proposals.

The farmers have joined the protest attired in the traditional 'Amude' (loin cloth) and with their traditional farming tools in hand.
