Sinhalese in London come out in support of Brigadier who threatened Tamils

Dozens of Sinhalese in London, describing themselves as "patriot Sri Lankans", demonstrated in Westminster on Saturday in support of Brigadier Priyanka Fernando, the Sri Lankan Defence Attaché that was seen making death threats to Tamil protestors.

The demonstrators held placards with slogans such as "Eelam is a delusion" and "arrest and deport them", while chanting "Sri Lanka, one nation."

The demonstration was billed as a mass rally on Sinhalese social media platforms but turnout remained under one hundred.
