I think you got the message wrong. I think what it says is that then all kinds of weapons & ammunition were coming and now people are fleeing.

Exactly. Here's no politics in this cartoon. Navy has to changed their duty according to the situation.

Then: people from allover the world coming to settle down in Ceylon. (malay,burger, singoporian, indian, thai etc etc).
Now: since this demo-crazy thing all Sri Lankans educated or not trying to settle down in other countries.
All politician since the so-called independence from Birtain has done nothing for this country. we are pathetically failed state and that is the real Wonder of asia. Shame on all and curse your graves of all who failed us. Thank you so much for the great cartoonist who put it right on the dot

Then People liked to live in Srilanka so, They came. Now People don't like to live in Srilanka so, They go. (They think Tamil people can't live in Srilanka)

Most of those people in the boat got only 6 nos of GI roofing sheets after the war. That also donated by India. They are doing the best option available for then. It is appropriate that SLN consider humanitarian aspects of this high risk voyage.
