Protest held against killing mentally ill Tamil youth in Colombo

[TamilNet, Thursday, 05 November 2009, 14:58 GMT]
Several political parties along with some human rights organizations Wednesday afternoon held a demonstration in front of Fort Railway station to protest against the police on the alleged attack on a mentally unstable Tamil youth in the shallow seas near the Bambalapitya Railway station last Thursday. Democratic People’s Front (DPF) led by parliamentarian Mano Ganeshan, United Socialist Party (USP) led by Sritunga Jayasuriya along with ‘Mothers and Daughters of Lanka’ and the ‘Platform for Freedom' organizations participated in the demonstration.

The protestors shouted slogans and held banners against the police claiming that the Sri Lankan police had undermined the democracy and the human rights of the country.

All speakers addressing the event said that the attack was an image of the state terrorism in practice and it is time that everyone despite political differences, race or religion, join their hands to stop the government from putting democracy, human rights and media freedom of the country in danger.
