Cardinal Ranjith Announces 'People's Wall' on Fourth Anniversary of Easter Sunday Bombings, Demanding Justice for Victims

Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, the Archbishop of Colombo, has announced plans to build a "People's Wall" on the Negombo road in Colombo on April 21st to mark the fourth anniversary of the Easter Sunday bombings. The wall is intended to demand justice for the victims of the bombings and to highlight the need for stronger laws to prevent such incidents from happening again.

The Cardinal made the announcement during a press conference held yesterday at the Bishop's House. The wall will be built for half an hour from 8.30 am to 9 am on the Colombo-Negombo road, stretching from St. Anthony's shrine in Kochchikade to Katuwapitiya's St. Sebastian's church.

During this time, a two-minute silence will be observed at 8.45 am, the exact moment when the first bomb attack took place on Easter. The Cardinal has called on all people who value justice to join the rally, regardless of their race, religion, caste, or color. For those unable to attend, the Cardinal has requested that they stand up at their place of work at 8.45 am and observe two minutes of silence.

The Cardinal has emphasized the importance of the event, stating that the people's wall will serve as a symbol of unity and strength in the face of terror and injustice. The event is expected to draw a large number of participants, and the Cardinal's call for justice is likely to resonate with many in Sri Lanka.
