Lankans abroad rally against Geneva resolution

*Demos planned opposite UNHRC office

*Thousands gather in Milan

Sri Lankans in Italy conducting mass street protests on Sunday to oppose the US led resolution and supporting the Sri Lankan government led by the President to overcome the designs of forces against Sri Lanka.

Thousands of Sri Lankans living in Italy yesterday staged a massive protest in Milan condemning the proposed UN resolution backed by the United States and several European countries to be submitted at the 19th United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session in Geneva. These Sri Lankans, irrespective

of their political affiliations and ethnicity, showed their solidarity against the proposed UN resolution and condemned the vicious agenda of the US against Sri Lanka.

They said that the US and several Western countries are attempting to plunder the country’s resources by meddling with its internal affairs under the cover of human rights.

Crowds kept streaming into Milano from many cities in Italy and other European countries . The organizers said that they will continue these protests in Europe as the UNHRC meetings continue until March 23.

“Lanka is an independent and sovereign country. Sri Lankans living abroad should come forward at this time to safeguard their motherland,” Sri Lankans in Europe said.

A massive protest is also scheduled to be held opposite the UN office in Geneva where the UNHRC sessions are being held.

Meanwhile, massive protests held islandwide on Monday to coincide with the UNHRC meeting, continued in many towns yesterday too.

A massive protest was held opposite Khan clock tower denouncing the US led attempts to create disunity and mistrust among the communities by moving a resolution against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC session in Geneva. The crowd shouted slogans appealing to the United Nations and the United States not to disrupt the peace enjoyed by the people in the aftermath of 30 years terrorism.
