The All Island Egg Manufacturers Association yesterday engaged in a protest against the introduction of a new method for poultry named battery cage system.

Protestors in Hettipola town said that the method was introduced as per the needs of the Minister to benefit a small group.

Protestors blocked traffic in Hettipola and even burned an effigy of Minister P Harrison.
