Why not you set am example to the world by inviting the Aragalaya participants to use US Embassy premises in Sri Lanka, now they are homeless? As the diplomatic convention goes, it is considered US territory and the human right violating SL police and army cannot enter. rest of the country and the SL government can then engage in what they should really be doing at this difficult juncture.
Of course, not only Your Highness Madam Viceroy, many of us Sri Lankans too are concerned. Not sure what your concern is, but we are concerned that the action taken to clear up violent anarchists, arsonists, assaulters, looters, murders might not be decisive enough to help get our beloved nation back on track economically and socially so that tomorrow we can look forward to at least rice and pol-sambol (if you don’t know what it is, Your Highness should try it in Colombo as it can be yummy depending on how it’s prepared) on our meager kitchen bench that serves as our family dinner table.
