Case study
My name is Sebastian lived in Kapaveli. I am 69 years. I am driver. Last month I transported five village people to the NAFSO training center for year evaluation. I participated as diver .In that meeting I also joint   now and then for the common sessions. I got feeling that people should organized and awareness themselves. In the same time I also change my attitude that I also should get the membership from the Kopaweli group. Although I am diver I also faced all the problems that Kopaweli people faced .So when I went to the village I discussed with leaders and I joint the Village group. Now I am member of the group and I give my fully support for the team.  I thank NAFSO team and GANDI forum.

Written By Freedam to the nation resettlement of IDPs on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 | 12:05 AM

Cardinal Malkam Rangith , Bishop of Mannar, Rayappu Joseph, Defense ministry secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa , Military leaders and Mullikulam people had meeting at Mullikulam NAVY camp on 26 December 2012 , Decisions that they have taken as below *To give the land 750 meters outside of the origin village. *To build the houses and other all basic assistances including road, water, and electricity *Livelihood program –Farming and fishing If people agreed to below promises Cardinal Malkam Rangith also agree to support to these IDP people. That was the promises from the Government side. So as civil organizations and clergy we met people last 13 of January 2013. According to them Government break the first promises .Now they start to survey the land 1400 miters out of their village. People said how can we trust the promises. So finally they planed to send the Fax to the Cardinal Malkam Rangith and send the letter. People idea was that Cardinal Malkam Rangith should support to get the 26 December 2012 promises.

Will people get thier rights

SL Archbishop collaborates with Gotabhaya in militarization land grab • Written by TCEHR • Monday, 07 January 2013 00:28 resettling inhabitants, news sources in Mannaar said. The Sinhala Archbishop had come and the Tamil Bishop of Mannaar, Rayappu Joseph, was made to silently sit along with him at the conference called by Gotabhaya at Mu’l’likku’lam on 26 December, in coercing the largely Tamil Catholic villagers to the sulking reconciliation of accepting alternative offers of land, the news sources further said. The Tamil Catholic villagers, who were owning more than 1 acre of land per family as an average, are now given with half an acre per family 750 meters outside of the village and a ‘promise’ from Gotabhaya that a ‘state of the art’ village would be built for them having the Sinhala military of genocidal intent at their neighbourhood. It is now learnt that the Bishop of Mannaar was pressurized and coerced by both the Sinhala Archbishop and the SL Defence Secretary to silently present himself at the militarisation cum land-grab conference. Many villagers became silent after seeing the Bishop of Mannaar at the conference, news sources said. The Bishop of Mannaar later admitted to journalists, “there was nothing to take place through talks.” The Mu’l’likku’lam Sinhala Naval base in the Musali division of Mannaar district as well as militarization of Mannaar are particularly aimed at Sinhalicisation and dismemberment of the Tamil homeland on one hand, and on the other hand, wedging cum targeting the Tamil Nadu coast on the opposite side that has a predominant population of Tamil Catholics of the same clans, commented Catholic circles of the Western coast. The Sinhalicized Tamil Catholics of Puththa’lam, Gampaha and Colombo districts now realize the dismemberment of their own territoriality in the island, their loss of language and loss of communication with their own clans on the opposite coast with whom they were sharing the waters throughout in history, the Catholic circles commented further. The Sinhala Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith has gone on record on several occasions for siding with the regime in Colombo and subtly shielding the regime’s genocide against Tamils. It was the Bishop of Mannaar who boldly came forward to enlighten the world on the disappearances in the Vanni War running into a figure of 146,000. The Bishop was also leading the civil society movement of Eezham Tamils in recent times. Writing last month, Dr. Brian Seneviratne, Australian human rights activist of Sinhala origin steadfastly supporting Tamil rights, said the following: “It concerns me greatly that the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has just sent officers to question (intimidate) the outspoken Rt Rev Dr Rayappu Joseph, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Mannar in the Tamil North. The next step will be that he will ‘disappear’ in a white van – be ‘white vanned’. That is why the world must be informed, which is what I have been trying to do. “The Pope will have to act. After all, it is one of his flock who is under (real) threat. Will he? I doubt it. I have a photograph of the Pope clasping the blood-stained hands of Mahinda Rajapaksa - clasping it not with one hand but with both! “Vatican diplomacy has blessed many of the tyrants and torturers of recent history, betraying Catholic idealists in Singapore to Lee Kuan Yew, and secretly exerting pressure on the British government to free ‘Torturer-in-Chief’, former General Augusto Pinochet, who was arrested in Britain and was wanted by Spain to face charges of murder and torture. The Vatican’s unfitness for any role in world affairs could hardly have been better illustrated. “So I am not holding my breath that the Vatican will act even though Bishop Rayappu Joseph may well be the Sri Lankan version of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador who was executed by government gunmen when he raised the Chalice celebrating Holy Communion.” http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=79&artid=35913
