“Over seven thousand Tamil expatriates and others braved the snow falls inundating Britain this week to crowd Park Lane, where The Dorchester is located, to demand Sri Lankan officials be prosecuted for war crimes, while hundreds more filled the short street in front of the High Commission.” – Reports Tamilnet.com
Several thousand demonstrators have gathered in front of the The Dorchester (where Rajapakse stayed), carrying placards and hundreds of Tamil Eelam flags, and chanting slogans denouncing President Rajapakse and his regime. Despite unusual low temperature, cold and snowfall; more than 10,000 protesters have gathered in the demonstration.
Later, President Rajapska’s address to the Oxford Union, which the society canceled at the last minute amid expected mass protests in the university town.
