The people in the Northern Province who were held as a human shield by the LTTE terrorists also staged massive demonstrations in the Killinochchi, Mullaitivu and Jaffna districts yesterday.

They lauded the government for eradicating terrorism which was sponsored by the some foreign countries in the West to create divisions among communities.

These people who underwent a number of hardships in the clutches of LTTE terrorists openly denounced the terrorists for depriving them of their rights for 30 years and condemned attempts by the United States and the West for moving a resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Counci(UNHRC)l session.

Tens of thousands of people across the country took to the streets yesterday to condemn a resolution sponsored by the US and the West against Sri Lanka that is to be moved at the 19th United Nations Human Rights Council sessions in Geneva. They voiced their anger over attempts by United States and Western countries to meddle in the internal affairs of the country under the cover of human rights.

Islandwide protests, including several in Kilinochchi and Mullaitiviu,
were held yesterday against the resolution which is to be presented against
the Sri Lankan government at the United Nations Human Rights Council
sessions in Geneva. Protestors down South included foreigners.

The massive protest held in Kandy began with an Adhistana pooja at the Temple of the Tooth which came under the attack of LTTE terrorists in 1998, with the participation of Mahanayakes of the Malwatte and Asgiriya chapters.

The members of the Maha Sangha invoked the blessings of the Triple Gem on the government led by President Mahinda Rajapaksa for his courage and wisdom to defeat the conspiracies aimed at creating divisions among the communities.

Even foreigners participated in the massive protests that were held down South. Over 100 foreigners who participated in the protest at Hikkaduwa said Sri Lanka is a beautiful country where people of all communities live in peace and harmony and any attempt to destroy this ethnic diversity and harmony should be defeated.
