Civil Monitoring Commission Convener Mano Ganesan said the protesters had called off their planned visit to Colombo.

Mr. Ganesan said that thousands of relatives of missing personswere camped at the Vavuniya Urban Council Grounds guarded by riot police armed with water canons.(H.F)

    Dear Protesters, you have to go to Geneva, not to Colombo. What do you expect from Colombo? Even CJ has no power in Colombo.

    Give the freedom and democracy to sri lanka people , not to provoke by police by stopping them .
    all the time when protest or demonstration police act 1st move or send tugs to make things happen and blame the protesters .
