Latest update:An island wide Public Emergency has been
declared and curfews may be imposed at short notice. Demonstrations are
occurring throughout Colombo. Several violent incidents have taken place during
large demonstrations. Avoid areas impacted by demonstrations. Carry relevant
travel and identification documents with you at all times. Follow the advice of
local authorities and monitor the media for updates.
We continue to advise you reconsider your need to travel to Sri Lanka due to the security situation. The Australian Government has authorised the voluntary departure of dependents of Australian High Commission staff in Colombo. Public demonstrations continue to occur throughout Sri Lanka. Demonstrations can lead to disruptions to traffic and public transport.
Sri Lanka is experiencing a shortage of fuel, cooking gas and medicines. You may experience disruption to fuel supply and planned power outages. ] https://www.smartraveller.gov.au/destinations/asia/sri-lanka
The above became family policy to us, even before the Australian cricketers left for Sri Lanka. A sovereign group gets early indicators. I took the above advice by the government as confirmation that my continuous reporting on how I read the Sri Lankan news.
Last night a fellow Australian Tamil responded as follows, to my article headed ‘CORRUPT PROTESTORS EXPOSED’:
[Well well, this is the kind of news item you expect to see in the govt run media two days before a major decision to be made in parliament that will make or break Sri Lanka. Someone is out there with a cheque book writing out millions to buy corrupt gullible politicos. ]
My response was:
[According to you, no media could be trusted. I take their report on what happened and then use my own truth to identify with why it happened.
Not surprisingly, you remained silent when I kept writing about ‘political influence within the protestors. Now media is confirming it. If you seek to be blind – that would lead to ignorance.]
Those who are dependent on others – like the LTTE, JVP and Politicians would eventually mark the person who challenges their ‘pictures’ , wrong – so they can mark themselves right. That is a form of ‘welfare mentality’ outcomes.
As if to offset the above, Mr Valentine Kursusumuthu– a long time loyal reader wrote to me on the basis of the same article:
[Dear madam... you compare Ghandi and Jesus in a right time about a fight for "democracy '.. Clever, intelligent and "very correct in an incorrect situation "]
As per the ABC report ‘As Sri Lanka's politicians decide the next president, locals feel country's crippling crisis’ at https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-07-19/sri-lankans-feeling-the-countrys-crippling-crisis/101251852
[A day after Sri Lanka's President fled the country, Mohamed Ishad waited outside an immigration office near the capital, clutching a file of documents that he hopes will get his passport renewed so he can leave, too.
He wants to go to Japan and find work there so that he can send money back home.
Mr Ishad is devastated to leave his family behind, but feels there is no choice — and no opportunity — in his country.
"Living in Sri Lanka right now is not good — if you want a good life, you need to leave," he said.]
As per my interpretation of the above, the economic crisis has opened the door for work outside Sri Lanka. In a way that is the pathway opened for Tamils after the end of armed war in 2009. Recruitment by other nations begins with deterioration of governance structure in one’s homeland. Tamils emigrated due to their community’s inability to deal with the deterioration of the structure. Now Sinhalese are doing likewise.
President Rajapaksa refrained from using the armed forces and this has paved the way for peaceful emigration. But often those who emigrate without settling their dues, continue to profit from war through locals who are pampered by free money.
Whether it is the Tamil community or the Sinhalese community – where the power of welfare is stronger than the power of work, the Administrative structures get damaged. The Administrative structures needed by a community is naturally developed when they sacrifice earned benefits. Below is an indicator about the Tamil community’s structural damage:
[Both Ranil and Anura Kumara are extremely racist : the Tamil MPs are well aware of this; those Tamils who support them are letting down their offspring. True historians shall never forgive them. ( incidentally Ramalingam Chandrasekeran of the JVP had been found guilty of murdering an anti JVP Tamil in the estate sector and let off - the fellow is now based in Jaffna & talks like a pious politician ) ]
Two out of the three contenders have been indiscriminately ‘dismissed’. That leaves only Mr Dullas Alahapperuma, who never held the position of leader of the Parliament. As a member of the SLPP, to which Mr Gotabaya Rajapaksa also belonged he has common responsibility for the decisions made by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. That is the structural outcome, we have the duty to accept.
As per the evidence surfaced by Sri Lankan media reports, Opposition to JVP is Opposition to the protestors and v.v.
If therefore JVP leader is elected today, and he is not opposed by the Protestors, JVP leadership of the Protestors is confirmed. This in turn confirms the acceptance of Communism in Sri Lanka.
If this were to happen, it is highly unlikely that the IMF, which is seen as a democratic institution, strongly influenced by the USA, would NOT bailout Sri Lanka.
Ranil, who is an heir of President J R Jayawardene, known as ‘Yankee Dickie’ is the best option available to Democratic Sri Lankans. Today’s voting in Parliament, is the test to know which force in Sri Lankan National Parliament is strongest – JVP Communism, SLPP autocracy or UNP Democracy.
