Media Release: Solidarity and Support for Sri Lankan Community

The Community Migrant Resource extends our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to the entire Sri Lankan community of Sydney.

Over the Easter Weekend, a series of devastating attacks across Sri Lanka have once again targeted innocent families as they expected to celebrate Easter or share time with their families.

CMRC stands united in solidarity with the Sri Lankan diaspora in Sydney.

CMRC stands against those who promote division, hatred and engage in divisive commentary.

Every human being deserves the right to practice their religion, and be afforded the right to live their lives without fear of persecution or harm.

“CMRC supports all members of the Sri Lankan community at this time as they respond once again to an overwhelming loss of life and assault on their civil liberties. Since September 2012, we have supported thousands of community members resettle in Australia, build their capabilities and contribute to the democratic principles and values that underpin our commitment to social cohesion, understanding and egalitarianism,” Melissa Monteiro, CEO CMRC.

CMRC will be working in the coming days, weeks and months, on a mission to rebuild lives, restore hope and engage partners to help demonstrate our solidarity, unity and support for the Sri Lankan community.
