The rape of Sinharaja Forest

There were photos of vast swathes of forest land that had been destroyed on the periphery of the Sinharaja. This is the last great rainforest reserve we have and has to be protected without and ifs and buts.

There is no point making lip service as it is the political henchman of people in power who are up to this nonsense for personal gain without any concern for the future generations. The issue is that the laws are in place but it is not being enforced because the enforcer is afraid of going against the powers who will make sure he is denied promotion and be transferred out to the Gulag type postings.

It important we take a stand against this, shame the perpetrators in the press and get the people of the country to agitate in public. It is sad that similar acts are taking place all over including the Hakgala forest reserve and no one seems to be able to do anything about it, due to political patrimony.
