    Theese type of incident will lead our country to another "Civil war" which we have experienced severl ocasions. Politicians, you should be prepared to face crticism and opposition parties ideas.

    Imperialist, and international big gap. If one trust the law would wait for executing the law. Democracy is more painful than communism.

    This is nothing but karma comrade, comrade's karma!

    What goes around comes around. Strange to see JVP talking about going international. Not too long ago, they would have been the first to oppose any move by international community to intervene in SL's domestic issues.

    PGA Saturday, 16 June 2012 02:01 PM

    Reports say that the meeting was about condemning the 'imperialist invasion'. How can the JVP then take the issue 'internationally' and expect international assistance?

    Bandara Saturday, 16 June 2012 01:41 PM

    The Govt. has just accused the Westminster for letting the protesters against Mahindha's visit to London.
    Hence the Govt can deny our people their Right to hold a meeting in H'tota to show the world, how we practice democracy in SL.

    chandana Saturday, 16 June 2012 01:32 PM

    This is really funny. They have forgotten that they have challanged the right of the people to do politics democratically in 88 & 89 period. Moreover that still they are opposing others using violence in the universities where they have the power of student councils.

    Union Saturday, 16 June 2012 01:06 PM

    It is possible. However this is what JVP criminals did during late 80s. So history repeats against you.

    Perhaps this is in reply to the London humiliation and the freedom of protests over there!

    Kumar Saturday, 16 June 2012 12:43 PM

    Were you able to print posters in time ?

    Oooooooooooooo Saturday, 16 June 2012 12:13 PM

    Of course governments are always behind such dastardly acts,this Srilankan government too likes to out perform others in evil acts.

    Musthafa Saturday, 16 June 2012 11:39 AM

    MI Saturday, 16 June 2012 11:36 AM
