Addressing a public meeting in Colombo, Sri Lankan government Minister Wimal Weerawansa has called for a boycott of all American products, including the use of Google.
The Minister also called for a boycott of brands such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, KFC and McDonalds. Weerawansa pledged to the crowd that he would personally stop using Google products, stating,
"We must show our protest even in a small manner to U.S. for the ill-treatment they are throwing at us."
"We should boycott American products in order to show them the strength of our nation, they will feel the effects of our actions.
I also used a Gmail account and from today I will stop using it.”
