Celebrating the Independence Day when the government has defeated it’s meaning.

04/02/2010

Today’s the 62nd Independence Day, the first such day after the end of the terrorist struggle. So this day should be symbolic of our freedom, but are we? Are we free?… If you don’t give a damn about the government trying to censor news, if you don’t give a damn about the government banning newspapers, if you don’t give a damn about website editors disappearing, if you don’t give a damn about ballot papers being found in gutters (don’t know if this is true. But it’s not impossible in this country), if you don’t give a damn about recently released IDPs starving and suffering, if you don’t give a damn about Mervyn Silva terrorising the Kelaniya electorate, you are free, just as much as I am. Do I seem to be giving a damn? If so tell me. Hate to give the wrong impression.
