The movement of heavy traffic was reported in the Town Hall area and Slave Island as the main opposition UNP started to march to Hyde Park grounds in two groups from Darley Road and from Slave Island.
The UNP and the Trade Unions led by Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna and  opposition political parties and organisations in the ‘Vipakshaya Virodhaya’ will hold the rally at the Hyde Park Grounds this evening against state oppression, corruption and to push for the abolishment of the Executive Presidential system.

    Oh Anton! Just hope that you are an odd one out. It is high time that opposition to what is happening in our country grew to tidal wave proportions!

    Well I saw that sarath fonseka's democratic party had shown up in impressive numbers. Good to see momentum being gathered against government.

    Why don't they do this opposite the parliament?

    they are fighting for us...we are not ready to bear atleast part of the burden they carry on our behalf. You people who are fast to criticize the opposition deserve to have this government.

    Baila....Democratic Party very little...mostly only UNP..I am here at the demo

    By doing this and causing traffic will only result in public going against the opposition.

    If traffic congestion, that too just for a few hours, is going to make the public go against the opposition, then what should the public do for having to endure hardship after hardship and a state of lawlessness?
    For good governance, you need a good government as well as a good opposition. Do we have either?

    Who cares this type of demonstrations? People are well aware of the nature of these leaders and their capabilities. utter waste of time during organized traffic by these idiots.

    We are glad at last the UNP is spearheading a very useful protest march. We do hope the common man will derive benefit from it.
