Sri Lankan security troops raid Galle Face protest site, 50 injured
Posted in Local News
A tense situation is reported at the Galle Face protest site near the Presidential Secretariat as Sri Lanka Police and troops move in and remove protesters from the area during the early hours of today (July 22).
The security forces removed some tents and structures placed around the Presidential Secretariat and arrested some persons.
At least 50 protesters were injured, the organisers said, including some journalists who were beaten by security forces.
If they were asked to leave and given a fair amont of time to leave that is fine by me. Government is to govern, not to be governed by the mob.
Rarely Wimal Weerawansa says something useful. But yesterday, he analysed what happened precisely and the role of ‘Aragalaya’ hooligans. Cannot agree more, but, he forgot to mention the roles of Gammanpila and himself in the very beginning. Video clip is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqeoFLBU_No
FANTASTIC! HIGH TIME! CLEAN UP TIME BABY! HOORAY!
Indeed high time these ‘aragalaya’ parasites were shooed-away with bug spray. True there were sincere, hard-done protesters once, but now what remains are all radical, extremist parasites and deadly ones at that! Arson, assault/battery (including battery of our dear Ranavirus and stealing their weapons), murder, are all hallmark of INSURGENTS/TERRORISTS (e.g. LTTE, once-JVP, recent-SL-ISIS, etc) and although they think their violent acts should qualify them for being the rulers of SL (or even separated parts of it), the law-abiding masses (aka the silent majority of SL) do not think so !
Last time, as a university student, I was on the road against executive presidency parachuted to the country and against what was said to be going on Batalanda detention centre. How time change! I am happy to do offer my voluntary service in the Batalanda as ling as I can mete the well nourished Anthare leader.
Alright, let’s get on with the toxic clean up. Enough is enough, and in this case enough is an excess! Time the country moved forward in getting the essentials to the suffering people and clipped the wings of these ‘viplavakarayas’ who thought, instead of through the ballot, that they can install themselves in the Sinhasanaya (LOL) by carrying out a violent coup, and this time a coup with ‘mass uprising’ flavor! 1971, 1985/1989, 2022, …? LOL!
Good on you, Armed Forces.
I was an Aragalayist for > 70 days till IUSF/FSP Goons took over 100%.
