    What freedom is there in Sri Lanka?
    Media freedom!
    freedom to support any party?
    freedom to support speak?

    why my countrymen are not realising what is happening to others will happen to them soon?
    I can pray for my country...

    What more freedon these donkeys want if they can protest in public, shouting like mad cows and still can go home. This is their job to discredit the country for few NGO dollars.
