    Roshan Shanaka has paid a huge price to save the POOR workers their hard earned EPF / ETF.

    He is our Hero who is similar to the Israel Boy who led the Egyptians against Dictator Mubarak.

    Why was live ammo used and who ordered it? A total violation of human right. Where is the freedom of expression.

    We are deeply shocked to hear the condition of the poor victim, vehemently condemn the high handed action of the police and there should be a proper investigation and have the culprits punished.

    freedom of expression is a basic right and we have to respect to it in the name of democracy.

    But other hand we should undestand the reality in the world where things happening in iraq, agfanistan or other palces in the name of demacracy. we leant that western power used name of democracy to in order to them to involve internal matters of other states. therefore our politicialns and people must undesttand that and react .
    power greedy politicians can turn around things without looking countrys future prospect as things happened in 88-89.
