The Movement for Street Protest today staged a demonstration at Thummulla Junction in Colombo urging the authorities to bring back the family members went missing during the armed conflict and after. Pix by Kithsiri de Mel
Feel sorry for these parents. By allowing these protests the present govt is ensuring that the Tamils in Colombo will never vote for the SLFP. They want to keep the wounds raw.

Register these people as officially missing and help their families gain closure. Provide appropriate fiinancial aid counselling and support. Help them move on. I know it is easy for us safely tucked in Colombo to say. Other wise we will be back to square one with a new separatist war and future mothers fathers from sinhala tamil or muslim ethnic backgrounds will have to have similar protests for their loved ones.

What a sick comment. Respect their sorrow and keep away if you can not help. They are looking for their kith and kin who they handed over to authorities for investigation after the war and do not insult their wisdom.

Bring back the 700 policemen went missing after surrendering to the tamil terrorists too. Let us seek justice to all. Not to a selected few.

@ Sumangala ..you were thoroughly mistaken ..this is not against the SLFP.....please note MS got the highest percentage in all Tamil speaking area including Colombo ..? This is to SF and not to the present regime ...please take it as a request and not as protest
