    I thought protests were banned during this time. How do they know on what train the man is travelling?

    good advertisement for the killing field

    These Villagers in Anuradhapura who are unaware who Macrae is, are protesting against him. This shows the state of affairs in Sri Lanka.

    Yet another case of Rocking the cradle and pinching the baby.

    President invites for a cup of tea, his supporters opposite to the President. Miracle of SL.

    What a disgrace, we are supposed to be a civilized race and we should behave like that. We should handle this diplomatically.

    Exhorcist Wednesday, 13 November 2013 07:45 AM

    Official GOSL : No protests!!!
    Unofficial GOSL : Will protest!
    Double standards

    Game Kolla Wednesday, 13 November 2013 03:42 PM

    Protest is one thing while... obstructing some one's path is another serious matter...

    nalaka Wednesday, 13 November 2013 07:49 AM

    true the lies of the diaspora will come out soon

    Chris the Silva Wednesday, 13 November 2013 07:54 AM

    When President Rajapaksa visited UK as a Londoner I saw how LTTE supporters laid siege his hotel and even threw bottles at him when Cemeron government was happily witnessing.
    Whatever said and done whether one likes it or not Rajapaksa is a head of a state and even I who had voted for the UNP back at home was very disturbed by the treatment the Sri Lankan President received in London.
    Macrae is a journalist who does not have credibility even here in UK and Sri Lankans have been quite tolerant given the manner he had ventured to ruin country's reputation with channel 4 film.
    Macrae is lucky to get away only with protests as it was nothing compared to what the Sri Lankan president went through in London.

    It only takes a one cell phone call from a passenger to let someone else know, it's not that difficult for news to travel. This is not 18th century!

    Ruwan Thursday, 14 November 2013 02:09 AM

    I could not agree with you more. Another stunt by this govt to hide the truth.
