One-man picket opposite US Embassy

A one man picket took place in front of the US Embassy in Colombo this morning.

The protest was launched against Army Commander Shavendra Silva’s travel ban.

“Get out America. Our heroic Army Commander Shavendra Silva cannot be bullied. Sri Lanka is not for sale,” the placard read.

On the 14th of February, the US banned Army Commander Shavendra Silva and his immediate family members from entering the country over ‘credible’ war crime charges.
