    Violence is no answer. Please do not go down to the stinking low level of Politicians of corrupt, lawless Banana Republic. Let the Jokers dream of the Elam. We all know what is left for them is the dream of living in their own Elam.

      “Let the Jokers dream of the Elam.”

      Similar to the dream of a Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto in the Indian ocean.

        why are the tamils and India agitating for a piece of the ghetto to establish their mythical eelam?

          “why are the tamils and India agitating for a piece of the ghetto to establish their mythical eelam?”

          They are worried, when my people finally kick those descendants of Kallathonies out of the island,the Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims and others will become stateless refugees and will be forced to return to their ancestral homeland Tamilnadu.

          Those 20 million refugees would be a huge drain on their coffer.

          My people don’t want Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto. The 20 million can go back to either Tamilnadu or Bihar and build their own ghetto and live happily ever after.

      Would you agree with Dr. Gene Sharp’s Methods of Nonviolent Actions below, read them would come handy if and when you decide to join the people of this island to kick the clan out of office and out of the country. I never thought there are this many ways of peaceful and legitimate protests available to ordinary people until my elders refer to this site.

      They should call themselves LTTE Youth Organisation. For that what it they are. But, fooling the world is LTTE’s expertise. TYO has been doing that for decades.

      SL fans who attacked racist TYO members are utterly stupid. Unpatriotic idiots. You are not helping the new Sri Lanka we want to see. You gave the cunning, racist TYO the publicity and the video clips they needed.

      Apart from the fact that violence on anyone, including cunning, racist TYO is unacceptable.

      However, TYO was looking for this scenario. Shouting LTTE slogans while drunken fans were walking out. There calculation was correct. And it worked thanks to a few dumb SL fans.

      Imagine a similar situation against British Football fans. We all know the result. TYO would not dare to try something like that.

    Not happy with the fact that a girl was kicked, but, the picture is inconclusive, he could have been going for a guy and the girl happened to be next to the intended victim. Girl or guy, violence is not the way. However, the TGTE could hardly be classified as “rights activists”. Eelam flag and Eelam map wielding, far from activists. In any case, SL supporters should behave better next time, otherwise they are playing right into their hands.

      The ‘kick’ is aimed nowhere near that LTTE harlot – the guy is standing well to the left and behind her. In fact at the start of the last video you see a guy kicking around doing his little dance, so it looks like they managed to get a picture of someone doing that and with the help of a bit of perspective trickery tried to pass it off as an attack on the poor innocent terrorist supporter :)

      Then again what’s a small lie like this for these monkeys given the hilariously preposterous stuff they come up with on a daily basis.

    “Not happy with the fact that a girl was kicked, but, the picture is inconclusive, he could have been going for a guy and the girl happened to be next to the intended victim.”

    Look at the picture carefully it was not the man who kicked the girl as many may assume. I am certain that it was the girl who kicked him between his legs and pretending to be the victim.

    What a nasty diaspora.

      Any form of violance should be condemned. But the police should investigate the root causes for such an incident….waving the flags of banned terrorist organization, shouting against a relatively peaceful and standing after a protracted war against a bloody terrorist organization especially in front of a peaceful international sports event with nothing to do with politics or whatever. People should remember Murali who were embraced by all the SLs without any racial discrimination and Russal Arnold who is a commentator representing SL. These people didn’t mingle their sports life with the bloody politics. All the SLs admire them. As far as I know these protests are purely to protect their refugee status nothingelse as happen and heard from the Tamil people themselves in Aus. These won’t do any good for the Tamils living peacefully with other people.

    when these fellows go and shout ANTI sri lankan slogans infront of a stadium where Sri lankan spectators will be attending, confrontation is sure to happen. One must remember that these things have been going on for years. These terrorist funders kept on insulting, attacking SL in cricket stadiums when SL was playing, the authorities didnt take action to stop them to prevent any attack.

    So as time goes, emotions run high and the more SL is attcked SLn people would respond. This is what has happened. Also one must remember there were sinhala, muslim and even tamil sri lankan spectators.

    One thing i remember is LTTE protesters attacking sri lankan fans and sri lanka cricketers bus in Toronto in 2009. well i can understand terrorist supporters can stoop to such level, but you cant expect sanity from commoners when their country and them are bashed unfairly.

    LTTE supporters in UK have laid a trap to provoke Sri Lankan cricket fans walking back after the match, by taunting them. They have succeeded in provoking one or two of them, for the purpose of filming the incident to get news coverage. The videos show that they are armed with smart phones to film the event.

    If English football fans were taunted by such a crowd, it would have been far worse. For people who are masters of supplying fake videos to Channel 4, this is merely an extension of their mud slinging campaign.

    They didn’t get attacked because they are tamil. they got attacked because they are acting in a taunting way. whats their problem with sri lankan cricket? they don’t have have the right to ask anyone to boycott sri lankan cricket. LTTE was named as a terrorist group by many countries including UK. I cant understand why Scotland yard doesn’t take action against a group that is supporting a terrorist group. Tamil groups in UK are nothing but frogs in a well. they dont want to see the real picture. they dont know whats really happening in sri lanka now. After LTTE everything has got back to normal and now we are living peacefully but these people want another war here.

    I was under the impression that LTTE is a banned organization in the UK. If my impression is correct, then how could the protesters carry LTTE Ealam flags? Then they are clearly LTTE supporters and engaged in an illegal act. So then, it cannot be called a peaceful protest but an illegal protest. The Police should have taken action or the others should have pointed that out to the Police, and not take the law into their own hands. However, whether it is peaceful or not, the others, Sinhalese or SL government supporters, should not have attacked them. Two wrongs don’t make one right. The Sinhalese or SL government supporters should be careful in the future. There is nothing we could achieve by engaging in violence in a civilized society like in London (although such action is acceptable in SL.) British public and other civilized societies would condemn the Sihalese if we engage in such scenario.

    It is understandable that the LTTE supporters have to highlight the ethnic issue in SL for them to continue to enjoy refugee status in the UK. Sinhalese or the Govt. supporters should understand that and not further tarnish the country’s image. Why should we play into the hands of the Eelamists.

    I have many Tamil friends in the UK and elsewhere, who are not Eelamists and are really anti-LTTE, but they have certain concerns and grievances, which we have to address to. We should not drag this on or go into the denial mode that no such problems exist. Do not paint all Tamils with the same brush as Eelamist. It indeed is very unfair. Please do not equate all Tamils as Eelamists or LTTEers. One should distinguish them not because of their birth but by their action as what the Buddha has preached:
    “Na Jatta Vasalo Hothi,
    Na Jatta Hothi Brahmano,
    Kammana Vasalo Hothi,
    Kammana Hothi Brahmano”
    (One does not become a low-caste person
    or a Brahamin by birth,
    One becomes a low-caste person
    or a Brahamin by one’s own action.)
    (All so called Buddhists, if they believe they follow the teachings of the Buddha, should understand this and emulate.)

      Tamil cricket fans who attended the match were attacked by imported Sinhala/Buddhist thugs.

      Is it true?

        Even if it is true…so what? The diaspora have been doing this for the past 30 years…a storm in a Ceylon tea cup. Time to move on to Cardiff.

        Long live SL and SL cricket.

    “Sri Lanka Born Criminals” fascinating choice for a slogan and i hope the irony is not lost those touting it out loud :)

    Anyway it is a shame if the Sri Lanka cricket fans did instigate violence against the protesters regardless of the provocation. I haven’t seen any evidence for this as yet however, England is country where there is rule of law (as opposed to Sri Lanka) and will save the English police the insult of being compared to Sri Lankan police, so if wrong done, the perpetrators need to be held accountable and am sure will be.

    The Colombo Telegraph, once again, does not seem to be acting in contradiction to good journalistic ethics by implying and insinuating many things as fact without any semblance of solid investigative journalism. Once a staunch reader of this, now unfortunately it seems even this has to be read with a pinch of salt.

      Added to it is the pepper, the biased crazy moderators. I tried some posts with different perspectives and attitudes, in result and got the clue how systematically the moderators behave in their tendency.

    Colombo Telegraph, how on earth these be people can be called “activists”? Get your facts right, just don’t publish fallacies quoting others. These are terrorist supporters. Scotland Yard should arrest these people for supporting a terrorist organization that is band in UK. In the first place, these terrorists and their supports should not have been allowed on the London streets.

    If any SL fan has misbehaved and broken the UK law, please do enforce the law. But ensure, law is applied equally for everyone involved in supporting a banned terrorist organization in UK.

    Yogi Yogalingam comment is not true about GOSL carry out genocide.. Many of these people in UK are bogus asylam seekers who try to blow the issue in SL out of propotion to protect their personal interests… Did Yogi come to SL and fight with her fellow LTTE caders in the jungles and suffered??? Does anyone of these people know what the real war was and the pain to all parties? Has she gone through the pain the majority of Sinhala and Tamil people gone through during the 3 decade of war period. This is complete bullshit. I have personally witnessed how Tamil (even LTTE) and Sinhalese youth who experianced the war has enjoyed peace when ever there were peace periods/negotiations were carried out…
    On the other hand its true GOSL also should create positve actions in re-settlements, human rights and peaceful permanent solution kicking out extremist Sinhalese parties.They are lagging in this even they give and effort – which has to be doubled up and with a genuine interest…BUT for Gods sake… SL is NOT like Syria or Afganistan or at least like post war Iraq??
    One thing that who ever done any attacks has to be prosecuted, but need to find out what made them to do it too.. Since i saw a post that so called independent protestors thrown bottles and this has started soon after that. Further London Police didnt do anything anticipating this kind of an issue may arise??? Is this a set up?? Not sure??

    Anyhow we are against the violance those who did them required to be punished irrespective of they are Sinhalese or Tamils…

    Finally, SL Cricket is NOT “Sinhalese Cricket”…. Its “Sri Lankan Cricket” where we have, Sinhalese, Tamils (Murali) and Muslims (Dilshan, Maharoof) playing in harmony. What Diaspora should do is that seek for justice in real issues BUT work in hand with all Sri Lankans to unite the war torn country – starting from supporting Sri Lankan Cricket team to win ICC world Cup 2013. After all Angelo Mattews (Captain of SL) background also leads to a Tamil Burgers – where as a United country we play peacefully… to win the cup!!!

    Think wisely BEFORE act!!!!

      These Tamil Trouble makers, prominent ones, are from “Asutralia and they are waiting for immigration in the UK. I think, Australia did not accept them.

    Shameful. This teaches us some lessons on patriotism, ego, and senses. Usually English football fans too behave like this when their patriotism and ego are too boosted or too severely challenged. This demonstration by the LTTE supporters may have been seen as some threat to Sri Lanka, when in fact those who chose to be hostile to the demonstrators demonstrated that the real threat is their own little brains that think dissent should be met with violence.

    It’s quite apparent this article was posted by a tamil. Everyone knows LTTE is a terrorist organization, it’s already been classified as one in Canada, and other places.

    I still remember when they protested on dvp (highway in canada) sending their kids first onto a highway with cats travelling over 100km/h

    Shame on BOTH sides. Instead of supporting our cricketers and making it all about sports, these idiots must put up a stupid show that disgraces our players AND the country. The world will think we are a nation of thugs and that we take our violence to other nations, even during a sporting event.

    Those who support Elam Movement are the thugs and terrorists and not the innocent cricket fans who came to boost the morale of the cricketers of their mother land.

      Clement Perera,

      You have to see the root cause of all these communal problems, which is the Sinhala Buddhist Political crooks who play race and religion card to clash among communities.

      Unless all get to gether and take back our country from these crooks to live in peace, these Political Mafia Alibaba Looters will further ruin our country to divide on racial and religious lines for their Political survival.

      Please think deep to see how they play their cards.

      No Justice No peace.

      I was at the game and there were tamils and sinhalese enjoying it together, these are terrorist supporters that the government should deport or imprison. if they were Al qaeda supporters it would never have been allowed.
      To be honest they were lucky to leave in one piece, we should have smashed the living daylights out of them!!!

        Proud british/sri lankan

        “we should have smashed the living daylights out of them!!!”

        This rings a bell.

        Few years before LTTE’s demise its supporters were rejoicing their victories. They to wrote comments similar to yours.

        Rejoice Rejoice.

    Oh, enough already with the cries of genocide….no bloody genocide happened in SL. There was a war against terrorists and a lot of innocent and not so innocent people on all sides died….now its over and we are not perfect as country, we have our problems and a lot to fix but the Diaspora is doing nothing to help. So please butt out, create your Eelam in Britain if you want and leave us Srilankans alone to build our own future!

      “create your Eelam in Britain if you want and leave us Srilankans alone to build our own future!”

      Its a good idea the Tamils should create Eelam in Britain more appropriately in India. You can build your future in India either in Tamilnadu or in Bihar whence your ancestors came on Kallathonies.

      “we are not perfect as country, we have our problems”

      You are the problem.

      “a lot to fix but the Diaspora is doing nothing to help.”

      Why do you expect diaspora to help fix the country where a Kleptocracy is actively robbing the people and their coffer.

      Before you leave my ancestral island go get your share of the loot from your clan. When you go take your Tamil brethren with you.
