Defence.lk was, under the Rajapaksa administration, a notorious website used to attack journalists and civil society activists. The content posted on the site, usually without attribution, frequently featured hate speech and content that targeted activists, independent journalists, websites, civil society institutions and NGOs under the guise of national security. Content on defence.lk was so bad, it even forced retrations and the deletion of content that offended India.

The current archive of defence.lk was taken on 26th January 2015. It is large, at nearly 2Gb. Download it here.
