1. Express to our church partners in Sri Lanka (namely, the Anglican Dioceses of Colombo and Kurunagala, the Church of South India Diocese of Jaffna, the National Council of Churches of Sri Lanka and the Christian Workers Fellowship) our prayerful support and encouragement as they pursue their ministry of seeking justice and peace in Sri Lanka.
2. Request the Government of Canada to:
a) take a more active leadership role in the international community to facilitate a permanent cease-fire, authentic mediation and a negotiated political settlement between the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam;
b) continue to urge the Government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to work towards a peaceful resolution of the conflict;
c) urge all parties in the conflict to respect that human rights of all who are affected by the conflict, including minority ethnic and religious groups;
d) ensure that all Canadian government development assistance to Sri Lanka (including all aid going through International Financial Institutions) goes towards programs that address the root causes of injustice and violent conflict in Sri Lanka, rather than to programs that perpetuate them.
