The activists of Movement for People’s Struggle staged a protest in front of the United States embassy in Colombo urging the NATO to immediately stop bombing in Syria. The activists who participated in the protest seen here holding placards written with anti- American slogans. Pix by Pradeep Pathirana
I thought I was well behind time when I read the news item. When did NATO bomb Syriya? This clearly shows the mental capacity of these protesters. Did they obtain permission to protest? The Govt. should order the Police to dismantle the Protest as it is NOT their democratic Right to Faulsely accuse a country or To demonstrate for a wrong Cause or display ignorance to the US. This shows that any idiot can hold a protest rally 'At The Drop Of a Hat', Only in Sri Lanka. This is a disgrace to Sri Lanka. Americans will be laughing at Our expense. Govt.! Do something!! Arrest the idiots to say SORRY to U.S.

America got a lesson from Egypt.I think they may think twice before helping.I dont think they will involve in this situation.

This is a High Security Zone area only for Opposition protests! Here the protestors are given even police protection and Government support as well.

Every citizen has the right to protest peacefully but to see women holding placards with the F word written on them is wrong , im sure they can't read english and they are not to blame but the organisers should be ashamed .

Exiled Syrian National Council (SNC) says city of Aleppo is facing carnage with the Assad regime deploying its full military might, including Air Force, against civilians and lightly armed Free Syrian Army. NATO is not bombing Syria. IT is clear the Movement has no knowledge of the real facts.

What a bunch of idiots ! Seems like they are protesting against the police? They should face the embassy if they are protesting against the embassy. They have their backs to the embassy and showing the placards to the police?
lalith Monday, 06 August 2012 10:32 AM

Just Another Citizen Monday, 06 August 2012 10:46 AM
There are things happening in Sri Lanka, why don't they protest about those in front of Temple Trees, Parliament etc?
RajasH Monday, 06 August 2012 10:48 AM

Minister Tuesday, 07 August 2012 03:38 AM
Do some of them at least aware of the meaning of the writings on the boards they are holding in their hands?
neil john Monday, 06 August 2012 10:33 AM
I am sure NATO will stop bombing now.
Ruvin Monday, 06 August 2012 10:35 AM
NATO isn't even bombing Syria, these people are so ignorant. No wonder Sri Lanka is in the state that it is currently.
Sisira_kk Monday, 06 August 2012 10:44 AM
Yeah, I doubt even the organizers have any idea about it, They seems think of Siriya as a another Libiya,
C'mon guys NATO has NOT bombed Syria yet, What's happening there is still an internal struggle,

The woman holding the play card (2nd photo) can't read it in English or she is doing it for money.

Most of these people really don't know what is happening in Syria.. It appears that they are presenting idiocy something totally irrelevant to us. (And there is no such thing as F*ucking for virginity)
Namal Rajapakse Monday, 06 August 2012 11:43 AM
Are these people mad or nature of them. The people who lead these ptotest might not even know what is NATO is and what they are doning now. Stupid, first sort out problems in Sri Lanka, we have enough things to do in Sri Lanka before we try to protect Killers in Syria. We love Syria because Both governments are similar.

Dee Monday, 06 August 2012 12:06 PM
B'cause then the protestors might get bombed.
Sammy Tuesday, 07 August 2012 04:40 AM
Why not protest against President Assad to stop killing his own people and end dictatorship.If the lady holding that particular placard understood the meaning, she would probably not be carrying it.
limatc Monday, 06 August 2012 12:07 PM
