    Thanks and best wishes for the people involved and actions.

    We should unite and tell the world about the Indian imperialism and stand up to them.

  2. Sarath W Says:

    Thank you all the patriotic, courageous and loyal Sri Lankans for forming the Global Sri Lanka Forum at a time the country is in danger of loosing it’s unitary status. As an expat living in Australia, Lanka Web is the only on line forum I can depend on to get the news of what really goes on in Sri Lanka. I hope GSLF will help expats living all over the world express their solidarity with the patriotic Sri Lankans to stand up to this puppet government.

    Excellent move. Best wishes.

  4. Hiranthe Says:

    Great move. This is what we have been waiting for. We appreciate the courage and dedication of these active members and all patriotic Sons and Daughters of Mother Lanka will back you with every possible way.

    Please keep all the patriots in the loop to share the actions you have taken to protect Mother Lanka and we are here to contribute to that cause by any means.

  5. Asanga Says:

    Thank you for this excellent action!! Please let us expats know how to participate through our individual country of residence.

    I am not sure if it’s premature to ask for a presence on the web through social media or blog, but this might be essential in the long run.

    As is common with an organisation where a large amount of people gather, it might be very important to remember and note that conflicts of ideas are bound to happen.

    It is essential that the main committee members expect this (especially among themselves) and take all steps necessary to resolve all conflicts to avoid dissension and to work towards the common goal of benefit for our motherland.
