    If the country is going forward this type of traffic jams will not be helpful it will waste money in huge amounts.If they need to oppose or support the move there is a place called Parliament where the people have sent their representatives no need do demonstration all over the roads people have send their representatives to present the view of public.

    This may be the last of the demonstrations that the people may have. After the 18th will such protests be tolerated. hema

    I cant believe that we had an opposition that was asleep all this time.People should have been educated on the adverse effects of the 18th amendment but we have a dead opposition leader who spends more time at Temple Trees than in Sri Kotha. People are protesting only because they are just awakening to the stark reality of what will be law in the days to come.

    Street protests normally for opposing, not for supporting.

    Awakening of srilankans to the great reality!

    The majority of people always reacted against unreasonable decisions of their represented in the Parliament, who simply exist to satiate their desires and not serve the people

    Utter waste of time and human resources that could have been used for many productive activities. Pro or anti-government protests take us nowhere.

    Do you want the people to be the silent viewers of everything?
