Local Americans trying to kill me: Wimal
Minister Wimal Weerawansa today claimed that he had been subjected to a huge attack and local Americans were trying to kill him following a request he made to boycott American products.
“Yes, I made a request from our patriotic Sri Lankans to boycott America and American products to show our protest to the American sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC sessions in Geneva and express our solidarity with the government. Surprisingly, the local Americans are attempting to kill me for making this statement,” Minister Weerawansa said.
Minister Weerawansa said he never expected such a protest and uproar for making a statement of this nature. “I have now realized that there are so many media personnel who get excited by such statements. It is surprising to know that there are so many American sons and daughters in Sri Lanka,’ Minister Weerawansa said.
“It seems President Obama has travelled not only to Kenya but also to Sri Lanka as well. I do not care if they want to kill me. But what I said was to refrain from using American products and services.
The media has distorted my request and are attempting to interpret it as if I asked to boycott Sri Lankan products. I do not understand as to why they get so agitated when I asked to boycott foreign goods. They do the job when the US Embassy phones them to do the job,” Minister Weerawansa said.
He stressed that the people of this country had a right to protest foreign influence.
“What I did was only a small protest against foreign influence on the country to show that there are people who love this country. There are patriots who are ready to face any risk on behalf of the motherland. American torch bearers are found in any country,” he said.

group of gooligans attacked some foreign tourist in srilankan capaital
Clown of the world!!
This is not a time for fantacy and jokes. Please be serious and grow out of the childhood.
All Sri Lanka citizens who have the green card or dual US citizenship should set fire to their documents in front of the US embassy.
I suggest we take one more step forward and deny all Americans visa for coming to our country as tourists.
Also why not nationalise Coke bottling plants. We can take them over like the Sevenagala Sugar Factory as an underperforming asset.
Americans asking (or bullying) the world to boycott Iranian products is a similar request in protest. The reason for the protest (what ever it is) is only fair to the protestor.
Therefore I see no problem in the protest called by the minister Wimal Weerawansa to boycott American goods which also is a “Human Right” of him.
Criticising the minister for the request is also a “human right” for those who criticise him.
Hi Manjula,It is the joke of American trying to kill him. To people who want to discredit SL he is an asset since it is impossible not to think how much facntacy the Hon. minister is capable of. By being there alive, he can make that kinf of statements often and make SL looks like a land of fools!
By the way, Mahesh Prabhashwara, why don’t you ask Gota and his 10% brother and Fonseka to start the bonfire and start putting their documents first? Because I don’t think they could ever visit US in the future anymore. While you are at it put Minister Weerawansa in it. This guy is a disgraced clown and his cousin brother Mervyn Silva, a champion asshole.
Such a disgrace…..
What happened to all the educated class?????
Politicians and especially ruling poeple (present gov) are now frequently talking about the poeples of sri lanka, patriots,human rights and ups and downs of their lifes.
Do you know for why????????? these politicians are hanging without any thing so they need sri lankan poeple’s support by boycotting and protesting.they need much more help from us thas y.
Politicians never do as they promised and when they speak at stages most of them are lies and they are the great liars.
they would jump from branch to branch as per their necessity and those are the examples of selfishness.
They earn for their family for living luxirious life and for their own life threatening.
Innocent poeples of this country like us are the bites for them.If they need they would keep us nearby, if we are not necessary they will through out us any by teloing some reasons.
this is the politics.
Now they are depending on Sri lankan civilians.as because they are helpless now and we are the only strength for them now, son that is why now they are thorughing most of the words our people, our nation, our peoples life , our peoles humanity,ect.
so dont be cheated by these politicians.
