    எல்லாம் நல்லாதான் இருக்கு. இவளவு நாளும் எங்க போனநீர்கள்? இப்போது தானா, அதுவும் 30 வருடங்களுக்கு பிறகு எமது பெண்கள் பாதிகப் படுகிறார்கள் என்று. எதோ எல்லாம் நல்லா நடந்தால் சரி. உங்களுக்கு பின்னால் யார் இருக்கிறார்கள்? புலியா, எலியா. சிங்கமா, அல்லது இப்போது தான் விளித்து கொண்டீர்களா??

    We need some slogans like these every year to collect as much funds as possibe to make a living in London..We are now British citizens and carrying Brititish passports… So there is very remote chance for us to back to Sri Lanka and do any charity work..We usually throw a small portion of the money we collect from the international NGOs to some workers back home… They supply with photos and videos to us of people getting pittance from our workers..We just invite one or two delegates to give our work an eye-wash..Does anyone know that we organise many conferences of this type every year?
