    Must have been organized by the UNP. Only UNP is capable of organizing meaningless and laughable protests or rather a pass time judging by the 4th picture.

    For this very reason the government is not threatened nor takes the party serious.

    When Thomas Alva Addison invented the light bulb someone queried him - what is the use of it?. He has told the person that somebody will tax it very soon and don't worry. So the inventor is the culprit of all these protest and antics.

    Joseph Thursday, 16 May 2013 05:42 PM

    Discarded items were disposed in the street.
    I feel pity for the Municipality workers.

    look at the harm they done to the vicinity, TV and computer monitors had to be disposed in safe manner.

    Way to go ladies...

    Shan Thursday, 16 May 2013 03:41 PM

    Look at the 4th Picture, Police fellows seem to be enjoying the scene, because they don't feel the pinch of electricity tariff hike.

    DHA Thursday, 16 May 2013 03:33 PM

    Protesting is ok but why dirty the place....
