  • People who (probably) didn't even know about @helakuru previously have suddenly become so concerned about its ownership and shareholders. All based on FB and WhatsApp messages from people purporting to be from Anonymous.

    Why are people so gullible and other questions … 13:20:32

  • I am so impressed by all that the university students are doing in this protest — first, there was the throwing back of tear gas canisters, then running off with barricades, now dismantling the barricades blocking their path 😃

    More strength to the youth protest!

  • It looks as if @PresRajapaksa is going to have to live surrounded by slogans against him 😝 Or is this wall going to be white-washed overnight?

    And if yes, at whose expense?

  • Barriers of metal and spikes on one side and barriers of flesh and blood on the other side — who will prevail?

  • There's a saying that a butterfly flapping its wings can create a storm halfway around the world… or something to that effect.

    When somebody dies (or is murdered) it creates a massive tornado whose effect can be felt not just in the present, but way into the future. /1 08:10:32

  • I feel that this PTerry quote applies to a whole lot of things going on at the moment … https://t.co/5hpTHgN684 06:42:00
  • Maybe it's an atavistic memory from when prehistoric cavemen ran with other cavemen trying to get away from a t-Rex thinking, "I just have to be faster than the other guy!", but humanity habitually reverts to "me vs. you" (or, by extension, "us vs. them"). /1 07:46:50

  • An admirable sentiment — the whole thread is worth reading.

    The trouble for most people would be differentiating between the trappings of patriotism and Sinhala supremacism given that those things have been conflated for so long. Hopefully, we do get there … https://t.co/v7KI07ejJt 17:59:57

  • Yesterday @ChayuDamsinghe tweeted a 🧵 that's well worth reading – first tweet in thread below.

    On reading his thread, what occurred to me was that the #GoHomeGota protest at #GotaGoGama could very well be seen as elitist — it certainly will be portrayed as such by some… /1 https://t.co/BSCk5VCgs1 08:35:31

  • Not sure that I'm in agreement with the letter to Limini that I've seen online and talked about elsewhere. I don't know if there are multiple letters, but the one I saw seemed a bit too personal and vitriolic. Is Limini the person you want to concentrate on at this point? 08:38:00

  • I'm seeing "they are weakening the protest", or, "singing/book reading is not going to help the cause" etc. on Twitter here and there …

    There's a bit to unpack here 🙂 /1 10:24:19

  • Years ago, during the war years in Sri Lanka, I accidentally participated in one of those workshops set up by foreign organizations to help us find a resolution … or something.

    As I watch the protests in SL with pride, I remember something I learnt at the workshop. /1 09:03:39

  • Maybe what we need is #GotaGoGama to spread to the rest of the island given the initiatives already launched there?

    Library, plastic recycling, waste management — they apparently are doing a better job at GotaGoGama than the government is doing … even though that’s a low bar 😛 https://t.co/oeQxkGKOfR 13:01:08
