    Dinesh Monday, 27 February 2012 05:54 AM

    sri lankan Monday, 27 February 2012 06:21 AM

    Protesting is not the solution for this..... We are human not animals... Government must able to manage these situation way in professional. But what they are doing is ask peoples to protest against UN... is this really practical and will gov get a solution???.....

    loop Monday, 27 February 2012 06:21 AM

    stupid way of dealing an international diplomatic matter !

    Labby Monday, 27 February 2012 06:24 AM

    Have the police obtained a court order to prevent this protest? And have the police come out in readiness with their water canons and tear gas ? Will they batton charge these protesters and even shoot them? Yes, these are our own people trying to protect their motherland. A few days back too they were our own people trying to protect their families. And they were shot.....

    Can't Police stop these protests like UNP one.

    Sanath Monday, 27 February 2012 02:42 PM

    Why no tear gas? Why no tear gas??????

    Ajith Monday, 27 February 2012 06:43 AM

    omg...I hear this conspiracies for long...Why can't we prove these conspiracies, and stop the relationship with those countries...That would make sense.. Now, our people will think all patriotism, and talk about conspiracies, where as , they are fooled, to forget the rising cost of living, and badly managed economy. Now if anyone talks about it this time,we become traitors......

    Wara Monday, 27 February 2012 06:43 AM

    This is one way only, Not the only way!!!

    neil john Monday, 27 February 2012 06:44 AM

    These unprofessional, silly work of government will attribute more fuel to the fire at Geneva.

    ind Monday, 27 February 2012 06:44 AM

    Do you get solutions by protesting against government ???

    Szosz Monday, 27 February 2012 06:44 AM

    Save all the trouble and millions of man hours.

    Let Wimal do another fast unto death.

    pASAN Monday, 27 February 2012 06:45 AM

    Arshad Monday, 27 February 2012 06:58 AM

    Strongly agree with you.

    pASAN Monday, 27 February 2012 06:46 AM

    Mifaz Monday, 27 February 2012 06:59 AM

    Well said LABBY.. unfortunately such protests will be labeled as unethical & terrorised.

    Rochelle Monday, 27 February 2012 07:01 AM

    Only stupid people see this as a stupid thing

    Jalba Monday, 27 February 2012 06:55 AM

    This is to hoodwink protest against staggering cost of living!!!!

    Sam Monday, 27 February 2012 03:52 PM

    We showed the world that how stupid we are. Can we solve the problem by going on to streets????

    beeta akka Monday, 27 February 2012 10:46 AM

    They should be protesting about the high food prices and corruption by politicians instead of protesting against the UN.

    Azaad Ahmed Monday, 27 February 2012 10:52 AM

    dev Monday, 27 February 2012 11:40 AM

    dev Monday, 27 February 2012 11:28 AM

    parata thara danna wage?

    gamini Tuesday, 28 February 2012 12:21 AM

    This is like beating up the deer skin in the house for the damages done by deer to the paddies. (Wele goyan kawama gedera thiyana muwa hamat thalanawa). The country is the is the dying patient. Govt. is the parasite/cancer. Medication is bitter. The parasite needs to face the medicine though bitter.

    Pathi Monday, 27 February 2012 08:25 AM

    Yes, majority of the people in this country will think this as a stupid activity.

    AJ Monday, 27 February 2012 11:55 AM

    This is a clear illustration of a country which do not have equal rights. When the government bring people to the street, the treatment from the police is different, but when the opposition bring their people to streets, it's a non patriotic act, it could create road blocks, traffic etc etc. So isn't this going to be another point for UN to understand that the Police act differently to two different set of crowds?

    citizen1 Monday, 27 February 2012 08:38 AM

    Hopefully this time he will succeed if he did protest !! Then we'll have one less idiot squandering public funds and resources.

    citizen1 Monday, 27 February 2012 08:41 AM

    Not the most informed person, are you? Keep on imagining that there s a conspiracy...good luck.

    citizen1 Monday, 27 February 2012 08:41 AM

    I need a beer.

    Robert Monday, 27 February 2012 08:43 AM

    " Fort Railway Station, opposite the Khan Clock Tower in Colombo Fort, opposite the the Ceylon Electricity Board and at the Technical Junction in Maradana" THESE ARE NOT High Security Zone ?????

    buffaloa citizen Monday, 27 February 2012 08:43 AM

    Past Governments never produced solutions to the ethnic issue, because it was a lucrative vote platform to do or say something against the tamils and get all the sinhalese votes.
