Hundreds of JVP supporters took part in the demonstration where slogans demanding the agreement entered between USA and Sri Lankan Defence Secretary Gothabaya Rajapakse be made public.

Demonstrators said people of Sri Lanka should know the truth about these agreements that quite often sell Sri Lanka's sovereignty to foreign countries.

The demonstration caused traffic jam in Colombo Thumullai junction and Havelock road.
