Around a 100 demonstrators protested against the visiting Channel 4 journalists at the lobby of the Bandaranaike International Airport, when they arrived in the country a short while ago.

A group by the name of “Movement to Promote National Harmony” organised the protest.

The Channel 4 journalists had not left the airport until protestors dispersed, after which they had spoken to the media personnel present to cover their arrival.

    If they really wanted to promote "National Harmony", they should allow for an International Investigation without protesting and mud sliding the dignitaries.

    the protests are selectively orchestrated! this time it falls under the right to raise free opinion!

    We should not stoop to the low levels of C4 and their main sponsors the pro-LTTE elements and tamil diaspora. Whoever organized this has unwittingly only played into their hands

    Anything for a rice packet and the morning off.

    To promote National Harmony, you have to give justice for those who lost their love ones during the war and thereafter. SL has almost 15 million Sinhalese, then why only 100 people were demonstrating against channel 4? Isn't it too little?

    well said Kumar

    The footage shown in these films have come from our soldiers cameras.

    Saskia Monday, 11 November 2013 12:50 PM

    At least 1000 could participate, right?

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 11 November 2013 10:17 AM

    How come these same protestors do not demand for an investigation into war crimes which has destroyed national harmony or are they just those famous hench-aiyas of the state.

    Shaik Anwar Ahamath Monday, 11 November 2013 10:22 AM

    To what effect are these protests, when these journalists are already here, except expose ourselves as a bunch of morons.

    Concerned Monday, 11 November 2013 12:57 PM

    Any of the protesters seen the video?

    Prometheus Monday, 11 November 2013 10:34 AM

    100 demonstrators? Thats it? Thats a sign that our patriots are losing big time even in the Sinhala dominated areas.

    ind Monday, 11 November 2013 10:40 AM

    sling mud? don't they have to to protest against who actually slang mud to SL for LTTE $$$ ??

    ind Monday, 11 November 2013 10:41 AM

    idiot? you want 15 million to come ??

    CP Tuesday, 12 November 2013 06:06 AM

    Government banned any protest during CHOGM. How come only this been allowed in a very high security area during CHOGM. Interesting to know...

    Saman Monday, 11 November 2013 10:47 AM
