Cardiff Cricket Violence: Nine Arrested – South Wales Police

There were a number of arrests at yesterday’s cricket semi-final India v Sri Lanka at the Swalec Stadium, Cardiff, attended by 15,000 people. Officers facilitated a mostly peaceful protest outside the venue, South Wales Police told Colombo Telegraph.

Six men have been charged with aggravated trespass on the pitch and three men have been charged with criminal damage to a car, a public order offence, and assault outside the venue. They are all on police bail to appear at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court on July 7.

One man has been given a fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly and another arrested on suspicion of disorder remains in police custody, said South Wales Police.

Protesters trespassed, carrying a placard reading ‘40,000 Commonwealth Citizens massacred by Rajapaksa’ with a Tamil Eelam flag draped around his shoulders.

Tamil activists from the ‘Boycott Sri Lankan Cricket’ campaign staged a demonstration outside Swalec stadium in Cardiff calling on countries to suspend sporting ties with Sri Lanka, and support a call for an international, independent investigation into the mass atrocities of 2009.

        But what he said is correct, 4 Sri Lankan cricket fans were attacked yesterday. I didn’t see that news on this site. It should be impartial when reporting news.

      UK is a truly democratic nation where freedom of expression and peaceful protests are perfectly legal. Sinhala racists who are used to suppression of these democratic values in Srilanka are up in arms. Please remember that LTTE is banned only for it’s terrorist activities and not for it’s peaceful struggle for winning the rights of Tamils including independence from a racist murderous oppressive Srilankan state supported by majority of Sinhalese. Assault on peaceful protesters in UK is a crime, unlike in Srilanka where such agitations are broken up by the state using violence. It is well known that these anti-LTTE demonstrations in UK are organised by the agents of Srilanka government. This action by the Sinhala racists has only brought to light to the British public about the behaviour of the Sinhalese against the Tamils in Srilanka. Tamils in Srilanka are suppressed by intimidation and unlawful arrests to prevent them from staging such demonstrations, which the Srilanka government is trying to achieve in the UK using these Sinhala thugs.

          India was built by British before that it’s parts were separate countries.
          This country was built by us. We fought against western powers. We don’t like to give up what we have built.

          We want our Sinhalese Buddhist country.

          Even though Sri Lankan Tamil worship to India. India don’t care about Tamils. Indian government cannot provide facilities to it’s people. Tamils in Sri Lanka have better life than Tamil Nadu.

          India will not have a Tamil president or pri minister for next 100 years.

          We (Sinhalese Buddhists) defeat what ever against us. We win this.

        Asanka,The problem is that we Sinhalese did not allow the Tamils to live in peace.Protesting against state policies is the right of any citizen in a democratic country.What happened when they protested peacefully against the Sinhala only act.In 1958, the anti Tamil riots was formented by SWRD.The killing of the planter was because he was found with the wife of the person who killed him.That is his right.What happened in 1977,1978 and 1983? Was it the Tamils who started it?Since 1956, the Tamils were deliberately left out of employment.Since 1970 the Tamil students were deliberately left out of Universities.These are genuine complaints.Behind all this were the SLFP politicians and the Buddhist priests.If we feel that Lanka is a small state and we want to have it as one, we should be able to live with every body in peace.Other wise they react

          But I don’t like LTTE not tamils.

          For the LTTE which wants war, I haven’t see any solution than war.

      There are no social benefits and the land and houses they own in Sri Lanka and ran away from are not worth coming back to. How can they clone credit cards, buy houses and make the tax payer pay or deal in drugs, run rackets of extortion here … the police are too smart. The English police are so stupid that they cannot see a terrorist unless he has a beard and is dressed like an Islamist. That is all they look out for and who have they got? No-one only some Pakistani paedophiles. They can’t catch anyone even though they have CCTV all over their cities.
      Sri Lankan Police have got brains because the eat onions grown in Jaffna.

      I wonder how many tamil people will ACTUALLY RETURN from WESTERN countries if a separate Eelaam state is given? NONE !!!!! they are so comfortable now in Western countries that they will not want to go back to living in good old Jaffna again. Also remember because the Sri Lankan Government has become their common enemy the tamils have united. But once they begin to rule among themselves their cast system will come in an d all the low cast tamils will be marginalised.

      So my questions is do they really want a separate state or is it a ‘front’ to live in the western world?

    Some youth caryying the Sri Lanka flag demonstrated their stupidity in London by trying to attack demonstrators who carried the Ealam flag. One man was even trying to kick a girl. Then, the Ealam flag carrying demonstrators showed their version of stupidity in Cardiff by breaking into the ground to intimidate the sportsmen who have nothing to do with politics. Do you guys think that people in the World appreciate such violence? I write this to express my disgust in the way both sides expressed their emotions so that you know that not everybody appreciates what you identify to be heoism. It would be more heroic to express within laws – write, sing, do stage drama, blog, etc. I know this will be followed by a chain of hate speech. Just wanted to say, I don’t care, in advance.

    Imagine the reverse scenario..Eng tour SL, sympathisers of Al Qeada run to the cricket field to hound cricketers and to provoke their fans by saying we want Sharia Law in the UK or want the UK leaders to be prosecuted for war crimes over the Iraqi/Afghan fiasco.

    If the above happened :
    English authorities would make such a song and dance about player safety and etc. We remember the days when the LTTE bombed Colombo, the touring Western teams refused to tour SL on “safety” issues.

    Double standards and hypocrisy of these so called nations that harbour terrorists in these Western lands.

      VERY WELL put… that’s my thinking too. The WEST always have double standards.. The bomb the hell out of Iraq and Afghanistan, drone bomb Pakistan and call those dead as ” Collateral Damage” IF so, those who perished at the World Trade Center on 9/11 are COLLATERAL DAMAGE too, for the intention of those who did the act was NOT to kill those who perished. They were at the wrong place at the wrong time… just saying…… isn’t sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander too?

    For a country that has got it’s priorities wrong and all mixed up, the Corrupt leaders are making use of Cricket as a cover up to keep the Nation entertained and the Nation who blames the Opposition for not doing anything to change the corrupt regime are highly euphoric, engrossed in Cricket. What Hypocrisy? Incidentally the World Political Power Blocks also knowing the weaknesses of the Asians, are using the Tonic ‘Cricket’ to sooth the masses here to get their own business agendas addressed. It is just like the Corrupt govts that resort to increase prices of essentials while Cricket Matches are played. It is about time we got our priorities correct and dropped Cricket, otherwise this kind of protest will never end and is understandable.

      The head of the state is unfortunately a blood sucker, not seem to utter a single word about the security threat of the mahajanaya today, even if some women, kids, youth have been brutally assualted by police and pradesheeya saba offiers. It is his calibre guys who has got elected by stupid rural folks. Hungered rural folks should better be informed at least next time. This is the grand tasks before the opposition, if they too, love the nation and country.

        There were no Sinhalese thugs. They were Tamils trying to give the Sinhalese a bad name. Like the Tamils here who use Sinhalese names to pretend that they are Sinhalese attacking the Rajapakse regime. Most Sinhalese see the LTTE as their enemies and the LTTE flag carriers are included as enemies. Don’t ever forget with all the money you sent from your schemes and scams We Won the War.

      I think these were provoked. Why would LTTE supporters attend a Sri Lankan event? Couldn’t they have protested outside ICC or the English Cricket Board?

      I blame the poor intelligence services of Britain and its policing. They had every right to cancel or relocate these protests. This would be something similar to an Al Qeada protest during an English football match…a recipe for disaster. As I said before, poor security apparatus of the once might “Great” Britain. This is the nation that allowed one of its soldiers to be beheaded by another terrorist sympathiser.

    We do not appreciate demonstrating in cricket as we all love cricket as a game, but demonstrate against the Rajapaksha brothers and their ruthless regime as and whenever you can be it in England or elsewhere? These two Rajapaksha brothers who are solely responsible for killing scores of innocent Tamil civilians at the last stage of the ethnic cleansing? continues to hares the Tamil people, capture their lands and suppressing their rights. Not only Tamil people now they have even started their ethnic leasing war against the innocent minority Muslims and Christians also. This clearly shows that Rajapaksha regime does not tolerate any minority communities in Sri lanaka? This is a very serious situation where UN and international body’s monitoring universal peace must get involved? Otherwise these Buddhist Sinhala nation will wipe out all the minorities living in Sri lanka?

      You are damn right. There were just 20-30 people in Monday’s demonstrations. Sinhala thugs attacked women and children and all the rest of Sinhalese started to praise those thugs like war heroes (a certain sinhala post about Monday incident surpassed over 10 000 shares). Result- there were no lankan flags in India- Lankan match. However Tamil protesters didnt attack any sinhalese woman or child.

          I am also told:

          The Indian flag vendor made a neat profits from the Sinhalese spectators than the Indian ones.

          The Sinhalese were seated closed to Indian supporters.

          The Tamil protesters have rapped themselves round in Indian flags.

          Sinhala Weerawansas were mute inside the stadium and when they left the grounds. This contrasted with their arrival.

          It appears that Sinhala flags were nowhere to be seen on that day and when they left they were very much subdued and without any flags.

          While we are on the subject of flags, why do the stupid Sinhala/Buddhists use the horrible lion holding a sword as their emblem? Do you respect a ferocious but lazy animal than humans?

          In essence the stupid Tamils and stupid Sinhalese sought protection under Indian flag.

          Do you know the names of the Sinhalese thugs who attacked protesters at the Oval?

    They started a new episode in Sinhala- Tamil relationships by attacking a peaceful protest of Tamils outside Sri Lanka. All the other sinhalese praised those thugs in a war hero range. Even Sinhalese women shared posts containing photos of sinhala thugs assaulting women and children.
    What happened Thursday is the full consequence of Mondays incident.Tamils cant let Sinhalese attack themselves in foreign countries. Sinhalese, this is not Sri Lanka to attack minorities without any reason and justifying everything like Hitlers nazis. So behave yourselves. Otherwise you have to hide your lion flags in your pant pockets. Anyhow Tamil protesters didnt attack any sinhala women or children.
    Live, let us live. Peace

    Also CT has not reported the incident where a Sinhalese mother and her 7 year old son returning after the match were attacked with chillie powder outside the stadium.

    I wonder if any sinhalese burnt the Eelaam flag if it would be ok with these people? This is a political issue, THE NATION IS NOT TO BLAME. Sri Lanka is a beautiful nation with amazing people. A people designed to live together in unity, singlese, thamil, muslim and burgher. But its jockers like this, the RajaPs and Praba’s that have destroyed our nation.

    Today girls are not safe because of tamil gangs operating in Harrow and Wembley. They rape and kidnap girls which is a great concern to the London Police. Some have already been caught on CCTV. People are scared to send their daughters alone now.

    The cricketers are not to blame for the politics. They represent their country not a government. We all support them and the captain is tamil.

    Eezam protesters there is more to life that what you do ! You are not wise and bring shame on all the tamil people. Breaking the law in the country you have been given refuge is nothing but shameful and disrespective.

    sinhala toilet cleaners came to watch cricket on their day off. i don’t go near them because they stink like anything. they all look very black like the sinhala cricketers. i felt like lobbing a grenade in the area where the black monkeys were sitting. i just hate their looks. siva sankaran sarma ( bogus) is a black monkey who has just come down from the tree. he swings on trees and eats nuts. he loves banana. i have said to him many times not to come down from the tree but he says he is bored staying up there all the time.

        you are wrong. coolies are less racist than the aristocrats. in other words working class people are more tolerant than those of in blue collar jobs. it’s a pity that you can’t understand that.

      You are a disgrace to ALL Tamils. Not even the Sinhala’s greatest enemy, Pirapaharan used language like this. You should be ashamed of yourself Rama. You should apologise to the Sinhala and Tamil people.

      Your hatred towards Sinhalese is understandable. After all they killed your beloved sun-god and your wet-dream of an eelam state. You sound more racists than those you accuse of being bigots.

      Rama couldn’t be a Sri Lankan Tamil. They are more respectable than this guy. This man should be a Indian bugger who try to fish in the troubled water. These type of buggers wet their pant infront of Chinese. I can understand why Aussies hate Indian people that much.

    Another Peaceful protest by the British Tamil Forum?

    Nilakshi Moonasinghe has been living in London for 20 years and she visited Cardiff along with her seven-year-old son and her cousin, who too had a seven-year-old son. She had to go through a tough ordeal. “We were advised by the supervisors not to leave the ground. They even said to take off the Sri Lankan shirts that we were wearing. There’s no way I was going to take off my Sri Lankan shirt. We left with a bunch of other Sri Lankan fans. Even the Police requested us not to leave, but we were of the opinion that this was going to be a peaceful protest. We were on the main road (Cathedral Road), and as I turned around to wait for another Sri Lankan fan, someone came and wiped my face with chilly powder. I collapsed and I couldn’t see anything. I was worried about my children and I didn’t know what was going on. Then, I was taken into a pub and there they washed my face and we were in that pub for about an hour,” she told ‘The Island’.

    “Then, as we came out, another group attacked us with some metal. I was severely bruised. The Police arrested a person, but overall, they weren’t prepared to handle the situation.”

    “I was helped by a Welsh lady who was the owner of that pub. She took us in her car to where my car was parked and we returned to London,” she added.

      blakepala, i don’t know why you are making a big fuss about it. if you take me for example , i hate sinhala people. i don’t like the look of them and i don’t like to look at them either. their presence irritates me. when i see the sinhala crowd on tv i turn the tv off. i support south africa. i always want sri lanka to lose. i am sad south africa has gone out of the competition , however, i will support india now. i have no doubt the tamil guys who were involved hate sinhala people like me. you sinhala evil people committed numerous atrrocities on tamil people since 1948. in any case what’s this sinhala woman doing in the uk for the past 20 years. is she an economic refugee who wants a better life in the west. stop moaning and complaining .

        Yes I agree with you, it’s far better to turn the TV off, rather than blowing it up if you don’t like what’s on.

        BTW. Did you move from Soweto to East Ham?

              native veddha, if i have the ability and means i would definitely help all tamil people to leave sri lanka. sinhalas are uncivilised savages and barbarians. sinhala leaders are all liars and con artists. tamil people had enough with these monkeys. they say one thing and then do something else. they promise something and later deny a promise was ever made. look at these people talking about 13 amendment day in day out. tamil people want the 13 amendment to be kept as it will ensure a measure of self rule. these sinhalas want to get rid of it as they don’t want tamil people to have any power, however, small it is. in short they all speak with one voice when it comes to tamil rights. can you blame me for hating these people. ,

    Why is that guy waving a poster stating 40000 commonwealth citizens.Doesn’t the chap know that there is no country called the commonwealth.Trying to drag the commonwealth into this thinking you can get some publicity shows the quality of those who are organising these stunts.They should have just mentioned tamils instead of commonwealth.

      “As a citizen of this country i want the gov to identify the men in these pics and track their families living here.”

      You are introducing new concepts in good governance and best practices in compliance of rule of law. You are really a legal eagle.

      You have a very bright future in legal profession, may be one day you will be appointed as the Chief Justice, Attorney General, ………

      “There is a limit to which we have to bend becasue of a RECONCILIATION…we defeated u and we will defeat u again.”

      India, USA and other 30 countries won the war for you.

      “settle sinhalese and muslims in north!NO ETHNIC ENCLAVES! let the refugees who run to Aus flee”

      I agree there should be no ethnic enclaves.

      Therefore would you please now ask the the state to change the laws governing immigration and land and let foreigners to freely buy land and live here without any visa restriction. I am all for it.

      If you let the refugees who run to Aus flee, then there will be an obvious problem, there won’t be any Sinhala/buddhists to protect Sinhala/Buddhism. It would be good for my people. please go.

          The stupid Tamils and stupid Sinhalese will make their own life so much difficult for themselves they will voluntarily leave for greener pastures.

          I am betting on their stupidity and the way things are they will leave sooner than I hoped for.

          “sinhala buddhists are the ones who go in boats…few might be but the majority is …u knw who… “

          Sinhalese have been leaving the island in draws. Recent report in Australia confirmed what my elders knew all along. In the past few years, majority of the kallathonies seeking asylum have been Sinhalese.

          Read:

          “Going and coming: Sinhalese asylums seekers in Australia”
          Gehila ennam.
          Excerpt from the article:

          “The Sinhalese asylum seekers are therefore people who want a better life but do not have the means to go about achieving that through conventional methods. It can be argued that this, in part, is what lies at the heart of Australian anger over asylum seekers. It is not merely a matter of xenophobia, it is also a matter of classism. Some Australians cannot tolerate the fact that asylum seekers have found alternative routes into Australia. It is important to observe that the Australian government does not object to wealthy Sinhalese coming to Australia to study medicine or law. In fact, the government is very happy for them to invest large amounts of money in Australia especially through inflated international student fees. What the Australian government does mind is poor Sinhalese coming to Australia who have nothing to contribute. By ‘nothing to contribute’ this effectively means ‘no money to invest.’ This is evident simply by virtue of the fact that so-called economic migrants, i.e. those migrants who migrate due to poverty, are not considered legitimate asylum seekers according to Australian policy.”

          The above is the story of Sinhala kallthonies seeking asylum in Australia. Sinhala/Kallthonies are found everywhere. This started with thug Vijaya and hasn’t stopped yet.

      I agree.

      If Chingalese and Muslims are not willing to settle in Jaffna bring down Africans or Burmese and settle there. We should divide them and rule.

      Enough photos are there to track down these illegals and their family members in SL. Anyway they are in UK prison now. The list of names should be available.

    These Hippocratic’s never help the poor people in Sri Lanka. They lived a happy life and let innocent poor ordinary Tamils to go to the war. pl…kindly protest to stop cast differences and marriage dowry issues of Tamils….these are lunatics with having blood on their hands…they act like Prabakaran is a saint….do they know how many innocent people prabakaran killed? Not only Sinhalese Muslims as well…Prabakaran sent Muslims from North as well….it is an ethnic cleansing…These are rogues…They do not talk about prabakarans act of Tamils human shield during the last few days of the war…If Mahinda is a war criminal ….then Prabakaran and his direct supporters are also must treat as criminals….tell me what is the difference between mahinda and prabakaran?

      According to this comprehensive Analysis by a multi-racial group of independent intellectuals, the number who died in the last stage of the war is between 15,000 and 18,000 and not 40,000 as mentioned here. http://www.scribd.com/doc/132499266/The-Numbers-Game-Politics-of-Retributive-Justice

      The report states a large number of hardcore LTTE leaders escaped from the camp where they housed the refugees, by using their Gold extorted from innocent Tamil civilians to escape and go to terrorist friendly countries like Canada & England. To escape deportation from UK, they are using funds extorted from innocent Tamils in UK, to force large number of Tamils to stage these demonstrations.

      These Tamils without a command of English live in their Tamil enclaves, dreaming of a Tamil Homeland in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. The 987,692 Sri Lankan Tamils the Northern Province constitute 4.87% of the total population of 20,263,723 in Sri Lanka, according to the 2012 Census.

      Every month these Tamil Terrorists sponsor about 100 people to jump in to unseaworthy bots, to establish a simillar support base in Australia. The census also includes about 300,000 Sri Lankan Tamils living in other parts of Sri Lanka and owning land in the Northern Province. In response to these activities, the Government of Sri Lanka is taking action to protect the Territorial Integrity of Sri Lanka.
