Fishermen who had protested against sand-mining in deep sea close to Negombo are currently staying in the Negombo Municipal Council premises.

The protest that had been launched last morning ended at about 7 p.m. yesterday.

However the fishermen say that they are prepared to launch a fast-unto-death if they do not receive a response to their demand.
