Students from the University of Visual and Performing Arts in Colombo held a protest march today (October 6) calling on authorities to address several issues affecting the students. The students marched from their university to the University Grants Commission (UGC) building. However, they were met by barricades and riot police near the UGC entrance. The students thereafter staged a sit-in in front of the barricades. Authorities eventually allowed several student representatives to enter the UGC to hold talks with officials.
