Replacing fascism with police state
On the opposite page we detail some of the happenings in the camps housing the Internally Displaced People (IDPs). In recent decades, Sri Lanka has had a chronic refugee problem. There was a time when a million people were in refugee camps some for years on end, like the Muslims driven out of Jaffna and staying in Puttalam. There were refugees of every community in the camps. A million meant that one in 20 Lankans was in a camp -a damning statistic by any standard.
