Protests were held in Slave Island Colombo yesterday demanding that the Government cease and desist from establishing a casino zone in the area. The Slave Island People’s Front organised the protest claiming that a casino zone in the area would result in a moral and cultural degradation in the area. The protestors charged that there were several schools and religious centres in the area that will be directly influenced by the setting up a casino zone in Colombo 2.
