The residents of Hambantota say that they are opposed to giving lands to the Chinese. Therefore, a group of Hambabtota residents have also joined the protest at the Magampura Port Management Company (MPMC) where port workers are protesting.
Sri Lanka is in negotiations to enter into a public-private partnership (PPP) with a Chinese company to ease accumulated debt in the South, from the previous government. Workers at the Hambantota port are currently in their eighth day of ‘satyagraha’ against the government decision.
Temporary employees of theMPMC employed at the Hambantota Port launched the strike demanding the government to make them permanent employees of the state-owned Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA). The workers say they fear losing jobs if the Chinese company takes over the port.
