  • Apparently the police cannot take action against the thieves in parliament but they are fine with tear gassing and using water cannons on peaceful protestors …

    So are the police only ever useful in Sri Lanka as protectors for those in power? Not the people? 09:06:47

  • Yesterday was a day of mixed feelings.

    The (mostly) lying scum at parliament did what they were expected to do – side with the Rajapaksas.

    But the IUSF protest march and the subsequent setting up of #HoruGoGama and the public support for that was heartening. /1 09:20:19

  • A thread worth reading and thinking about …

    Often, “unity” actually translates to “majority opinion” and going with majority opinion is not a good thing.

    Think individually. Act collectively if your opinions match. 10:08:39

  • Have the police been ordered to do this?

    Or did they decide on their own that protests so near to their “masters” was not a good thing and it had to be stopped at all costs?

    Never mind that people have a right to peaceful protest, eh? Why should the police care about the law? 16:04:32

  • And yet, people go on saying that the police and military need to to be respected. Do they really?

    I am not so sure!

    I definitely am not advocating for violence, but do not put police and military on pedestals. They apparently do not know whom they serve … 19:15:01

  • Maybe Siyambalapitiya is thinking that they’ll appoint him as President since he resigns so easily all the time? 😜 20:24:50
  • Are all politicians in Sri Lanka so thin skinned? Or do their relatives mollycoddle them? And other questions …

    Explanation – @RW_UNP’s niece apparently tried to cooerce the sister of person who’s going to protest in front of Ranil’s house …

    How infantile, or what? 21:08:35

  • Something useful to know (and to use) these days in Sri Lanka.

    Please Re-tweet as much as possible so that it reaches those who can make use of this knowledge …

  • When will police in Sri Lanka realize that they are there to serve the people and not to lick the boots of those in power?

    Probably too much to ask for?

    I guess short term individual benefits trumps long term benefits to the nation? 09:17:32

  • The police in Sri Lanka is not there for the protection of the public. They are just the “legal” goon squad of whoever is in power … 09:28:06
  • When you’re right, you’re right — we need to review everything we do and say to realize (and correct) our biases … 09:29:46
  • The level of bum-kissery in Sri Lanka sometimes boggles my mind … Why in the name of all that’s holy (or unholy, depending on your preferences) would you go to these lengths for anyone, let alone a fickle politician who will not remember the things you did for them? 10:15:32
  • The way to a person’s heart is through their stomach (or something along those lines) is a common saying.

    Perhaps the way to a person’s mind/brain is the same route? 12:34:06

  • I’ve never understood this reasoning for years. Apparently, we’ve got to choose from the lesser of available evils, but we’ll only choose the same evils that we’ve seen fail us before and won’t give a chance to the unknown “evil” … Logic, or lack of it? 13:21:00

  • A thread well worth reading — it articulates what most minorities are probably feeling in some way about the struggle/අරගලය and not able to (possibly) put into words. 11:32:01

  • This is what people should be doing all over the island. Why kowtow to ministers as if they were descended from the heavens?

    They are public servants elected by the public. If they aren’t don’t their job, let them know your displeasure! 08:51:41

  • Been thinking a lot about what makes people, well … people recently. Finally gave me the motivation to write a story after a long time. Sat down in the morning and hammered out this one:

    Comments? Feedback? 🙂 09:33:15

  • If all else fails … 😛 09:43:57
  • 💯this! 15:41:49

  • This is a wonderful thread … so much fodder for a science fiction writer … Ah, what I could do with this if I but had time, (a place to sit at, and a computer to write on) … 😜 10:05:18
