On Aragalaya: says it is not true that he is going after protestors. Says peaceful protestors were always allowed to protest. But not those that unleash violence. He says he will not allow violence and ‘terrorism’. Says law will apply equally to May 9 perpetrators of violence.
THE PRESIDENT DESERVES PRAISE
AUGUST 1, 2022
The condemnation of the action taken by the President in ousting the rebels – the anarchists – and the forthright defence of the so-called ‘peaceful protesters’ by the American Ambassador Julie Chung, the EU Representative, the Human Rights Representative, and the Canadian Ambassador, should open our eyes as to what is happening at the moment. What is the role these representatives are playing? What is their intention? It should be evident to any critical observer by now.
To put it briefly, the chaos unleashed by the ‘peaceful protesters’ and taken over by the JVP and the SFP to bring about a revolution through the mayhem, murder and anarchy is aimed at making Libya this country.
I hope this video presentation of the latest news from Sri Lanka is helpful and
