        The people’s Force should also be a movement to SAVE BUDDHISM FROM THE RAJAPASSA brothers and the terrorism they practice against innocents and minorities – in the name of Buddhism.

        Gota the Goon is DESTROYING BUDDHISM IN LANKA by promoting the BALU SENA RAVAY BALAYA etc.

        This Peoples force should challenge the VIOLENT BUDDHISM that the State and its agents run.. and clarify that Buddhism is about quiet meditation and the NOBLE EIGHTFOLD PATH…

      The Peoples Force Should be Formed.

      There should be civil disobedience.

      It should be like the 1953 Hartal.

      Agitate for Egalitarianism, and down with Tyranny of the Monk-Ruler Hegemony.

      Aug 13, Colombo: Sri Lanka’s main opposition United National Party (UNP) said it will take part in a mass protest organized by a people’s movement called The Force for Unity to protest the government’s military crackdown on a protest in Weliweriya and demand justice for the persons killed and injured in the attack.

    who are the “people” behind this peoples show of force?

    are we the innocent general public being used by one political party against their opponents?

      if you are forever going to stay away from protesting simply because a political party might try and claim credit for it, im afraid there will be very few opportunities anywhere in the world for you to actually protest.

    Force for Unity eh? Firstly it will be met by bullets. Secondly a power hungry political party will claim ‘this is what we have been saying all along’ and try to take it over. Thirdly its leadership will split. Finally it will disappear, probably into the UPFA.

    Disheartening? Yes it is.

    I’ve lost the count of ministers,
    I see they all fly with their backups,
    And live like kings.

    The government has done many wrongs,
    But no one takes the responsibility,

    Corruption is rampant,
    Waste is monumental,
    But no one takes the responsibility.

    UNP says they are the answer,
    But can we trust the UNP.

    There are many unanswered questions,
    Is the UNP an UNPatriotic party,
    Is there democracy within the UNP,
    Is the UNP leader an anathema to mass,
    Is this also another doomed protest.

    Jecho says protest will be a flop,
    So why waste our energy,
    What could Ranil do better than MR now.

    As a Western educated Sinhala Buddhist I call on the Sri Lankan govt to immediately provide asylum and grant citizenship to the 800000 Rohingya in Burma. These people are persecuted by Buddhists so we can show the world and make Buddhism proud. We must become like the West which allows millions of poor people to live in their country. Immediate citizenship to all persecuted Rohingya in Sri Lanka. or anywhere else. Also, Sri Lanka should allow Buddhists from Tibet also citizenship is they want to come here. Let Sri Lanka be a true Buddhist nation. Love all and peace.

      Thank You, Thank You. You are a true True Sinhalaya and a Buddhist. We shall tell the world that Sinhalayas are good people and they truly follow meththa, karuma and upeksha of Buddha’s teaching.

      We Muslims are very happy for you proposing to let 800,000 Rohingya into Sri Lanka. You should let Muslim refuges from Syria and other countries in the Middle East into Sri Lanka as well.

      As you know, we Muslims are capable of producing babies like rabbits. So, in a few years time, we Muslims will soon produce more than enough to be the majority in Sri Lanka. Then, we’ll make Shariya the law of the country. If you want to know what Sri Lanka will be like then, please visit Afganistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh or any country in the middle East. We will teach all Sri lankans how to be Jihadis and how everyone can end up in Allah’s heaven. Because we can have eternal virgins there even boys if you like.

    Not unless you include the struggle for the Sri Lankan Tamils for a the right to a homeland of their own will you be taken seriously. Sri Lankan Tamils need a review of the war, an examination of all legislature affecting minorities including the right to advocate a separate state,they need every person registered on the 1980 voters list accounted for, they need the area where the concluding stages of the war was fought excavated and all bodies accounted for. They want to be compensated for all losses resulting from this war against their right to form a state of their own.

    Is this big Sinhala Buddhist ‘force for unity’ willing to take on all these issues as part of its objectives? Otherwise it can go and you know what! After singing baila and dancing while the Tamils were being killed now what is all this shouting because a few sinhalayos were shot.

    The only way to defeat the present government lies in forming a PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT OF ONE YEAR of all anti government forces to realize the following within one year and then go for a General Elections .
    Introduction of a new constitution with provisions
    to abolish the executive presidency
    to abolish the proportional representative system and to introduce a better system to elect representatives to Parliament
    to meet the rights and aspirations of the Tamils and Muslims
    to empower the judiciary

    People of “Peoples Force” for unity,

    The simple answer to all these nonse is remove the FUCKInG executive presidency system and give power the parliment. The all these bullshits activities will have transperancy and responsibility.

      Whilst your at it, remove amendment 2 of the constitution as well and that should allow us to make headway to become the miracle of asia.

    What’s the point in publishing this item here unless it is for effects. If they need results, this should be published in Sri Lankan media. I thought CT has been banned in SLK and only foreign based Lankans read it. Hope CT will respond to my blog!

      I must say I expect it to be banned any day, but meanwhile am aware of many SL residents who read & contribute to it, including myself. Few, however, use their real names when blogging–unsurprisingly. Perhaps, like you, who seem to live abroad, I might adopt a different mask soon. Since u’ve grabbed Mahasohona’s perhaps I’ll use Garuda’s.
