News: Sri Lanka: New Government Makes U-Turn To China
Posted Date: 09/02/2015 (Monday)
When President Mahinda Rajapakse was toppled by a “peoples’ power” anti-corruption vote on January 8 there were messages from Western leaders and op-eds in newspapers in London, New York, Toronto and Oslo welcoming the success of another “regime change” campaign to overthrow a leader who was hostile to the West and cuddling with the Chinese.

News: Book Review: The Seasons o f Trouble
Posted Date: 08/02/2015 (Sunday)
Two books that are reportage from the Sri Lankan civil war—the fighting ended in May 2009—were published this year. Samanth Subramanian’s This Divided Island, published four months ago, took a macro view of the war’s end and its aftermath; in his own words, “picked at a loose tile and found a stash of corpses buried underneath”. It meditated on the tug-of-war over memory between the state and the individual, and took both the Sri Lankan army as well as the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) to task. An engrossing micro view of the end of the civil war in Sri Lanka, which touches as well as unsettles the heart

Rome with bread and circus-shows, Distracted citizens from their woes. Our rulers employ the ploys of Rome, To beguile the hoi-polloi at home With cricket, rugger, racing-cars, Lavish pageants and Bollywood stars. Highways, freeways, their priority need, To travel fast at breakneck speed,

News: MOHAN PEIRIS SAYS HE NEVER LEFT
Posted Date: 06/02/2015 (Friday)
Mr. Mohan Peiris claims that he never left, never resigned but was displaced. However when this matter was discussed in the National Executive Council, it was clear that Parliament never resolved to evict Ms Shirani Bandaranayke and never send such a resolution to the President’s office. Dinesh Gunawardena alleged that, “The Government’s action had undermined the authority of Parliament, as it overturned a decision taken by the Legislature. Only Parliament can remove the CJ and not the President. There is procedure laid down for this to be pursued, and it must be followed”. That is exactly the point. It was President Mahinda Rajapaksa who has violated this procedure by taking steps to remove Ms Shirani Bandaranayke without a removal notice from the parliament.

News: Modi’s Dangerous Silence
Posted Date: 06/02/2015 (Friday)
What will it take for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to speak out about the mounting violence against India’s religious minorities? Attacks at Christian places of worship have prompted no response from the man elected to represent and to protect all of India’s citizens. Nor has he addressed the mass conversion to Hinduism of Christians and Muslims who have been coerced or promised money. Mr. Modi’s continued silence before such troubling intolerance increasingly gives the impression that he either cannot or does not wish to control the fringe elements of the Hindu nationalist right.

News: End of an era
Posted Date: 05/02/2015 (Thursday)
There are an enormous number of lessons to be learnt from the presidential election held on January 8. I shall touch on a few that I think significant. The first is that in my opinion no previous such election had the historical significance that this one did. It needs very little reflection to realize that had Mahinda Rajapaksa won, this country would have been under a dictatorship for many generations to come. MR’s intention, it is alleged, was to hand the reigns over to his eldest son at the end of his third term.

News: Tamil refugees look to return to Sri Lanka after regime change India, Sri Lanka have much to hash out before mass repatriation can begin
Posted Date: 05/02/2015 (Thursday)
Subbiah Rajendran's eyes lit up as he spoke about the prospect of returning to his native Kilinochchi in Sri Lanka, which he left at the height of the civil war. For the past 25 years, this 53-year old has been leading a refugee's life in India. “We are hopeful of a better life after decades of suffering,” said Rajendran, who along with hundreds of others lives in Gummidipoondi refugee camp near Chennai, India.

News: CIVIL SOCIETY STATEMENT ON HUMAN RIGHTS
Posted Date: 04/02/2015 (Wednesday)
We, the undersigned conveners on behalf of civil society organizations and individuals who have focused on human rights protection through the dark and dangerous days of the Rajapaksa regime, welcome the victory of Mr. Maithripala Sirisena in the 08th January 2015 Presidential Election and the formation of a new government. We look forward to a positive and constructive association with the new government to ensure an end to the culture of impunity which defined the Rakapaksa regime’s record on human rights, and to a new era of robust human rights protection in Sri Lanka with due respect for the rule of law, accountability and the national and international obligations the Government of Sri Lanka is bound by.

News: Opening up? Sri Lanka's new government confronts legacy of war
Posted Date: 03/02/2015 (Tuesday)
Sri Lanka’s new government says it will address outstanding concerns relating to the civil war that ended in May 2009, including allegations of human rights abuses, missing persons and political prisoners. The new administration, which came to power last month, appears to be willing to tackle sensitive issues that were effectively taboo under the previous administration. But activists warn only swift, decisive, action can reverse the legacy of pre-existing draconian measures.
