    Namal Rjapaksee has Tweeted the UNHRC protesting re his arrest by Yahap govt for exercising his Democratic civic rights to do peaceful protests.

    Thank you, Namal !!

    We wish that MILLIONS of people in Sri Lanka would also Tweet the UNHRC protesting the wrong direction the Yahap govt is taking re Democratic rights in Lanka, particularly re their Rights under the Law of the Land to peacefully protest unlawful and deceitful actions by the Yahap leaders and others in their govt.
