See us for who we are 🇱🇰

Dilrukshi Perera (Dily)

See us for who we really are 🇱🇰

Basic human needs have been stripped off,
Countless human rights have been violated by the current government,
Yet only peaceful protests.
In these trying times the hospitality, the kindness, the patience and courage of my people are unveiled in every city, in every village of our paradise island.

To the world outside of Sri Lanka,

The media may depict us as violent but I assure you we are not,
For the first time in a long time we are standing up for our rights,
We are leaving behind our religious and cultural differences that have held us back and coming together by understanding and embracing what it truly means to be Sri Lankan.

See us for who we really are,
Absolutely passionate people who love our motherland,
Stepping out and making a change.
The masses you see represent
UNITY NOT VIOLENCE

What you are witnessing is the common man going against a corrupt dynasty that is hiding behind the cloak of democracy.
What you see is CHANGE
What you see is COURAGE
It is HISTORY IN THE MAKING.

I have never been more proud to be
SRI LANKAN
🇱🇰🙏🏽❤️
