Sri Lankans in Europe protest against Channel 4

Jul 18, 2011 12:11:22 PM - itnnews.lk

Sri Lankans domiciled in Britain have protested against the baseless conspiracies of Channel 4 on Sri Lanka. Many Sri Lankans throughout Europe also joined in this protest. The massive demonstration opposite the Channel 4 Head Office was organized jointly by all Sri Lankans of different ethnicities and political hues. The protesters condemned the controversial documentary as malicious. They accused the Channel 4 TV of inciting racial hatred between the Sri Lankan communities in UK including the younger generations and thereby playing into the hands of separatist forces operational outside Sri Lanka. They chanted slogans accusing that Channel 4 was engaged in a well orchestrated campaign to vilify Sri Lanka. They expressed outrage that the film lacked any sense of balance or objectivity. The demonstration lasted about four hours. Waving Sri Lankan and British flags, the protesters displayed many banners urging Channel 4 not to abuse media freedom in Britain in such a biased manner.
