Police were forced to use teargas to disperse opposition protests staged in Galle, Matara and Ampara this afternoon. The protesters have not informed the police about the demonstration against the arrest of General Sarath Fonseka, police media spokesman SP Preshantha Jayakody told Daily Mirror online.

Police used teargas as the protesters who had pelted stones towards the police. (S.D)

    No one can raise a voice ... what kind of democracy is this?

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 07:14 PM

    Not God's decision ... but, his reaction will come in due course.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:14 PM

    Keep it up. Let's get rid of the evil rulers.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:16 PM

    This is the politics of Rajapaksas. They should leave the stage now go in to hiding.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:20 PM

    EVERYONE READ THIS CAREFULLY

    "Police used teargas as the protesters who had pelted stones towards the police"

    IS THIS WHAT U CALL A PEACEFUL PROTEST?

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:20 PM

    All this because the Presidential Election, was without a doubt a fraud. Nowhere ever has a victor hounded his fellow contestant and his close supporters after winning by a landslide. MR and his clique know that the MAJORITY are AGAINST him. What the govt. is doing now is injecting fear into the minds of those who know the truth or even half the truth. So that, their lips are sealed for ever. If MR really has the 60% on his side should he worry and chase after his opponents this much? And what is the $310 million arms from Russia for?

    People with a 'backbone' will fight ...

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:24 PM

    Because they censor all what good people have to say.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:31 PM

    democracy is there. u just can't see it. when someone points to the moon, look at the moon and not the finger.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:31 PM

    In sri lanka there are 2 Doctor. one is our president and our Hon. Mervin Silva. So they'll Do...............

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:32 PM

    God has decided who should rule the country. accept it

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 02:33 PM

    don't be too emotional bro

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 09:24 PM

    Anybody who disrupts civil life should be dealth with ... they are only being tear-gassed, not burnt on tyre pyres ...

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 10:00 PM

    I feel sad for my motherland. What democracy, with a bunch of hypocrites ruling the country.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 03:28 PM

    If voting is people's right so does peaceful protests when things go wrong. If the rulers want to uphold the law they first must obey it themselves.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 03:39 PM

    God will give courage to our beloved General to show these Rajapakse Cowards what a true warrior means!

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 10:18 PM

    This is 'five star' democracy !

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 11:15 PM

    Wicky, I was there ... this is not how it started ... sure, the 'coppers' got what they deserved, afterwards !

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 11:23 PM

    On the fast-track to another Myanmar, Somaliya or former Uganda ?

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:17 PM

    See how insecure they are that even a peaceful demonstration is tear gassed. This will not deter the people to continue until our President General Sarath Fonseka is released immediately.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:18 PM

    why cant speak about the truth to public? who is reponsible for this??

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:25 PM

    this is just going to give more support to the opposition!! big tatical error by MR and Gota

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:28 PM

    The agitations must not stop. General Fonseka has to be released.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:30 PM

    we don't need tear gas to cry for our country... time to shed real tears for what we have made and making of ourselves...

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:34 PM

    Why should they inform the Police. Are they saints like Mahinda. We treat the Police as puppets of Mahinda and we dont care for them. If Mahinda is doing wrong acts, why not we citizens of SriLanka do it.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:41 PM

    Many more bad days to come. Be vigilent MR - Bros. & all Snr. Ministers.... its true, better in-house.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:43 PM

    Now you guys will taste your own medicine

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:43 PM

    Dimo-o-cracy vs Raja-o-cracy.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:51 PM

    Release him before it gets worse !

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:52 PM

    well done Dr.king

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:52 PM

    Why not use tear gas on the whole country? maybe they can fill cylinders with them.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 12:57 PM

    dont these guys have any PR skills? with the elections around the corner they keep acting like thugs..... or are they planning to rig this election too???? Shame on you Dayananda

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 01:04 PM

    Because of Maharaja's selfishness, the whole country is burning. Only God can save us from this ruthless regime.

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 01:10 PM

    Magdi Raja Go home . We need democracy weneed peace

    Wednesday, 10 February 2010 01:10 PM
