* Sri Lankan Buddhist movement to hold protest march against cattle slaughter
Fri, Feb 7, 2014, 08:51 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 07, Colombo: A Sinhala Buddhist movement in Sri Lanka that has been restrained by court from holding protests in the country has decided to engage in a protest next week.

The Sinhala Ravaya organization is reportedly planning to conduct a protest march against cattle slaughter from February 9th till the 16th.

The protest march has been organized despite a restraining order preventing Sinhala Ravaya from engaging in protests.

The march is scheduled to commence from the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic in Kandy and conclude in front of the President's residence in Colombo.

The movement has continuously campaigned against cattle slaughter and has demanded the government to ban it in the country.

In May last year a Buddhist monk of the Sinhala Ravaya organization self-immolated to protest cattle slaughter.
