Sri Lankan Americans Protest US policy towards Island Nation in Houston, March 12

Sri Lankan Americans (in Houston), will protest US interference in our homeland reconciliation process on March 12, 2014 between 11am and 1pm in front of the State Department Building at 8701 S. Gessner in Houston, Texas.

PRLog - March 8, 2014 - HOUSTON -- Sri Lanka quelled the Terrorist organization, the Tamil Tigers, in May 2009 ushering in peace and prosperity to all races (Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims and Burgers) in this island nation after three decades of conflict.    However, since the end of the war, various groups and countries have attempted to hinder the attempts of reconciliation by bringing fourth various unfounded allegations.

The United States, under the present administration, has joined these groups even though Sri Lanka has been making steadfast progress in reconciliation and currently experiencing commendable economic growth.

As Sri Lankan Americans (in Houston), we are organizing a protest on March 12, 2014 between 11am and 1pm in front of the State Department Building at 8701 S. Gessner in Houston, Texas.    The event will be attended by over 100 participants.

We will hand over a signed petition to Mr. Allen Greenberg of the State department requesting the United States honor Sri Lanka’s political autonomy, by respecting Sri Lanka’s own reconciliation process, and to stop instigating racial discourse under false pretence.

You are cordially invited to participate in the protest rally to safeguard Sri Lanka.

Rukshan Wijeratne, Hemaka Mendis (409-225-6499), Nilanga Weeratunga (936-718-6155), Ananda Manage (936-662-1396), or Mahendra Rodrigo (713-898-3960).
