The banning of social media platforms in Sri Lanka due to some seemingly communal violence is as despicable as the orchestrated violence.
I think it is the time for all of us to think as one nation and stand up against the banning of such platforms.
Whether you are a Sri Lankan living in Sri Lanka or elsewhere in the World, it is the time for us the show our collective power by not accessing the Facebook, until and unless the full and free status is restored.
We can afford to stay without it but can it afford to stay without us.
Some Doubting Thomas’ will ridicule the idea of Self-imposed boycotting of accessing the site by stating that we are a small nation and the impact will be minimal and or would not even felt at all.
Those who are interested in the history know, how a small bunch of people who were determined to get the due justice brought a big bus company to its knees.
I have decided to boycott the Facebook site until the full and free status is restored.
I can afford to live without it but can it afford to live without us?
