Violence has been occurring in Colombo all day. It started this morning at Gall Face, the long stretch of green between House of representatives and the sea where about 200 Tamils performed Satyagrha by merely sitting on the grass.
This appeared in The Times of UK, On June 5th, 1956.
…Decades have gone bay, but violence perpetrated by those with the Sinhala Sri Lanka supremacist agenda continues through today under various guises…
Today “War on Terror” and even a “Humanitarian rescue” are being carried out by the Sri Lankan to uproot Tamils.

'To self-oblivious men no praise'; this rule Decisive wisdom sums of every school.
Thoughtlessness will never acquire fame; and this tenet is upheld by all treatises in the world.
