Sri Lankans rally in Washington D.C. in support of government efforts
A large number of Sri Lankans representing the three major ethnic groups of Sri Lanka gathered in Washington D.C. on Friday the 20th of February in support of Sri Lankan government's efforts at eliminating terrorism. The hastily arranged rally took place at the Ellipse in front of The White House to counter the false and malicious propaganda of the pro-LTTE diaspora put on display at a massive rally in the same vicinity.
The Sri Lankan supporters in their demonstration appealed to the American government to take action in Sri Lanka’s quest for peace.
