Tuesday's bout of Bhagat bashing was succeeded yesterday by the SLFP's fervent championing of the Kandyan peasantry. If on Tuesday Agalawatte's Merril Kariyawasam made use of the adjournment to beat the war drums against India, yesterday during adjournment Attanagala's Lakshman Jayakody was equally vocal in declaring war on Minister Thondaman ......... Mr.Jayakody, who opened the debate with a discursive speech, said that the upcountry Tamils would ask for a homeland of their own on the Eelam pattern in 18 months time though he did not explain the basis for the time frame. Mark my words, he warned the House.

A star war will take place on January 8, 1986, in the house of Parliamentary affairs. This planetary was is between Mercury, the planet of communication and mass media vs mysterious Neptune.

This could also be a period of stress adversely affecting the rule of law. Resolutions of condemnation of rulers may be discussed as internal dissensions grow.

The world has yet to wake up to the fact that in the little island of Sri Lanka, there is a little area that has ceased to be under the island government's control. That area is the northern most portion called Jaffna Peninsula. In a country with a 74% Sinhala Population, the Jaffna Penninsula is today almost 100% Tamil. It occupies a position that is unique in the civilized world. There is no police force, and the courts of law are dormant. Lawyers get no briefs, the judges no work. The government writ does no longer prevail; the government appointed civil administration functions only to the extent that it is permitted to exercise authority by Tamil Liberation forces.

When events overtake human plans and efforts making them seen inconsequential that is the time when one senses the throb of a historical force. Sunday May 4th 1986 was the day when the Tamil Eelam Supporter's Organisation (TESO) held its SAVE CEYLON TAMILS CONFERENCE at madurai. It certainly promised to be an event of considerable political significance at that point of time. For the first time leaders and representatives of Opposition parties particularly from the North, with differing approaches on domestic politics were gathering in the heart of Tamil Nadu on a united bid to express solidarity with Tamils of Sri Lanka, Not withstanding the absence of the ruling party of the State, and the two Communist parties which were invited but declined to attend, the nationwide representation was broad enough to attract interest.

Two people – totally different in many respects, and between whom there no love is lost – have been in the news recently, in Sri Lanka. These two are likely to make more news in the coming months. They are: Savumiamoorthy Thonaman who is the acknowledgted reader of the vast majority of plantation Tamils and Minister of Rural Industrial Development in the present government; and Mrs Srima Bandaranike, twice Prime Minister in the past and now emerging as a distinct threat to President Jayawardene's stay in power.

Publication: Militarisation in Sri Lanka-01-06-1986

This paper raises the issues of Militarisation in Sri Lanka and the gross violations of human rights by the Sri Lankan government. These two issues are linked and have led to the dehumanisation of the Tamil people of Sri Lanka. Militarisation has also affected the development of the country to a great extent. We hope that this paper would bring about greater awareness of the developments of the country to a great extent.

To all those who look forward with naïve expectation that once the virtually imposed "Ceasefire" in Sri Lanka is made to stick for some period of time, a politicalm "settlement" would become and inevitable corollary, we recommend the wise words of Rudyard Kipling: " Nothing is ever settled until it is settled right."

The dynamic Madras evening daily NEWS TODAY carried in its issue of 17th December 1984 an editorial under the title "Enough is enough", which we are reproducing in full in our inner pages. If we can borrow a simile from Francis Bacon in his allusion to books that "some are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested", this editorial is one that deserves to be "chewed and digested" by all Tamils who are concerned about their future in that island polity of Sri Lanka. Editor T.R. Ramasarny has posed the one question that is most relevant to the critical situation in which the Tamils find themselves today: "Gentlemen, what exactly do you want?". A simple question, an embarrassing question, but a question that Editor Ramasamy has a right to ask, because he is speaking from our side of the fence!

The visit of a high powered 3 member delegation scheduled to leave for Iran on 10th November was cancelled by Iranian authorities immediately prior to the scheduled departure. The team was to consist of Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Tyronne Fernando, Chairman of the ruling party Harsha Abeywardane and SLFP MP Halim Ishak. The reason for the cancellation was to show Iran’s displeasure over Sri lanka’s contacts with Israel, particularlyPresident Jayawardene’s recent meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres In Paris. According to Iranian newspaper “Islamic Republic”. This was later confirmed by the Iranian Foreign Ministry. The Sri lanka Foreign Ministry contacted by the Colombo newspaper. “The Island”, declined to comment on the matter5. (virakesari 13/11 and Island12/11 and 13/11.

So, Mossad is here! The speed with which President Jeyawardena moved in to fill the awed silence that followed the tragic blast at Madras air port was a classic demonstration of the art of political one-upmanship. Even before Madras could blink its eyes or count its dead, the 78 year fox was busy writing a letter to Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi not merely expressing the customary “shock and grief”, but calling on her to “unite to fight terrorism”! The insinuation was as loud as the bomb.

If thirty six years of “freedom” from British rule had left them worse off than under colonialism, the past seven years of President Jayawardena’s rule have made them refugees and hostages in their own country; made them manful ‘tigers’ but also hunted humans; made them runaways and wanderers and job and asylum seekers in the five continents of the world.
