The demonstrators who gathered at Piazza Politama marched towards the ministry office via Kavuru shouting slogans against the Government of Sri Lanka and its president Mahinda Rajapkasa. They also carried a picture depicting Mahinda Rajapaksa as a killer of innocent Tamil civilians who were subjected to economic blockade, refusal of humanitarian supplies, subjected to extra-judicial abductions, extortion, killings and targeted military attacks such as aerial bombardment, artillery barrage and explosions triggered by covert attacks by the Deep Penetration Unit of the Sri Lanka Army.
