    You should compensate the poor farmers, no 2nd thought, but you should have done the same to the FAMERS and FISHERMEN of north and east ! why , while the tamils are let to suffer , you only care about one community !

    Richard Boucher, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs (State Department release)

    [I think we all understand that the Tamil community in Sri Lanka has certain rights and certain needs and certain grievances that need to be addressed.]

    The government colonizes traditional tamil lands, Mavilaru farmers aren`t the ones who should be compensated, but the tamils whom the land was taken from in the first place.
