Tue, Mar 25, 2014, 06:53 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 25, Toronto: Hundreds of expatriate Sri Lankans in Canada held a large protest Monday to show solidarity against the United States sponsored anti-Sri Lankan resolution at the 25the session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Canadian Sri Lankans in Toronto staged the "Hands Off Sri Lanka" protest rally in front of the U.S. Consulate on Monday March 24, 2014 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

The rally was organized with the leadership of Sri Lanka United National Association of Canada (SLUNA).

The protesters carrying placards and shouting slogans called on the U.S. and the co-sponsor UK to withdraw the country specific resolution against Sri Lanka, and to refrain from bringing similar unfair resolutions to harass Sri Lanka which is an independent sovereign member country of the UN and UNHRC.

Various Sri Lankan Canadian community organizations, 2014 Toronto Mayoral Candidate Dewitt Lee and Canadian Sri Lankans of all ethnic origins braved the cold temperature in unity to make a stand for Sri Lanka during the rush hour in Toronto.

Separately, a petition was signed by a large number of Canadian Sri Lankans which will be forwarded to the U.S. Consulate this week.

Canadian Sri Lankans in Ottawa will also be holding a similar rally outside the U.S. Embassy on Tuesday, March 25 2014 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
