Sri Lankans in Australia protest against Channel 4

Jul 31, 2011 12:06:04 PM - itnnews.lk

The expatriate Sri Lankans in Australia have protested against Channel 4 drama against Sri Lanka and the War Heroes.

The people protested against the media organizations that telecast such films produced by foreign conspirators.
Thousands of Sri Lankans gathered near the Federal Square in Melbourne to protest against the Channel 4 documentary. The Victoria Police had provided special protection for the protest as a terrorist attack was carried out on a previous protest organized by Sri Lankans in Australia against LTTE terrorist activities. The protesters alleged that the documentaries that baselessly criticize the government and the war heroes fulfill requirements of the LTTE well wishers. The ABC Channel of Australia recently telecast the fake documentary produced by Channel 4. The expatriate Sri Lankans in Australia expressed their vehement objection to this action. The protesters pointed out that the humanitarian operation carried out by the Sri Lankan government was against the most dreaded terrorists in the world and was for peace. They pointed out that the countries and media organizations that attempt to give an inhuman face to the humanitarian operation are working against world peace.
