Boycott of Sri Lanka Cricket 2011 - Sign the Petition

http://www.change.org/petitions/view/bo ... icket_2011

People from across the globe are condemning the Human rights violations of Srilankan government. And civilized society is fighting hard to establish the justice to the tamils. Killing of nearly 1,40,000 innocents, war crimes, ongoing slaughter on the journalists, moderates, reformists, artists and having

opposition leader behind the bars make the Srilanka as a criminal and a failed state.

LIST OF FEW EVIDENCES:

People's Permanent Tribunal found Srilanka guilty of war crimes and Genocide.

UN's Human Rights Chief is critical of Lankan government Human rights records.

US human rights report accused Lankan rulers for the Human Rights violations.

For your reference i am attaching the supporting evidences for war crimes and Genocide

Srilanka: If this isn't GENOCIDE, WAR CRIME, Then What on Earth is?

I'm going to allow this thread to remain, at least for the time being. It should be known by the author that this is a cricket forum about cricket and little else and we do not want the tone for the entire thread to be about Sri Lankan domestic issues, as drastic as they may be.
