"The recent violence and killings build up towards war. It began in Mavilaru and continued to Muthur.There will be large scale war soon in Sri Lanka.People need peace, development and justice.We urge the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to refrain from violence and return to negotiations immediately. Executing seventeen aid workers in Muthur is an extremely serious matter" says Dr. Jayadeva Uyangoda of Social Scientists' Association of Sri Lanka
