Civil society groups and activists staged an apolitical protest at the Independence Square in Colombo on Monday evening (19), demanding that democracy is restored in the country. 

Sri Lanka is currently in a political stalemate following the sacking of Ranil Wickremesinghe by President Maithripala Sirisena.

His actions have come under severe criticism from civil society and the international community for not adhering to democratic practices.
