Equity UK stands with the people of Sri Lanka and sends a message of solidarity to all Sri Lankan workers and artists.
The events of recent weeks have highlighted the desperate need to address historic and ongoing inequality and injustice in Sri Lanka.
Equity UK condemns all threats of violence and intimidation directed towards peaceful, progressive activists. The persecution reported by performers, artists and creatives seeking to give a voice to the Sri Lankan people’s struggle must stop immediately and the right to freedom of expression must be respected by the authorities.
Equity members send their full solidarity to all of our friends and activists across the Sri Lankan artistic community and wider protest movement. We stand with you and applaud your fight against violence and for a fair and just society.
