The vigil was held by the statue of Sankiliyan II, the last ruler of the Kingdom of Jaffna who resisted Portuguese colonisation of Tamil areas.

 

The protestors held banners referring to Gotabaya as the owner of white vans, which were used by the Sri Lankan military and its paramilitary forces  to abduct and disappear thousands of Tamils.
