Last November, I wrote about Dr. Politics at Sri Lanka Politics proposing a genuine bill of rights for his country. Well, the powers that be listened to him and this morning, he reports some movement:

The first in a series of workshops on constitutional reforms organized by the Constitutional Affairs and National Integration Ministry will be held on Saturday May 6, 2006 from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute, Independence Square, Colombo 7.

The subject of the workshop will be "A new Bill of Rights".

They’ll have some scholars at the workshop and it will, of course, be open to the public. Let’s hope that the Sri Lankan people take notice, attend the workshop, and begin to fashion an inviolable bill of rights protecting all parts of Sri Lankan society, from Jaffna to Hambantota.

Let freedom reign.
