May Day message of the JVP

Today is May Day, the day the heroes and heroines of the working class, who shed their blood and sweat and sacrificed their lives in a bitter, protracted struggle carried out to win an eight hour working day, is commemorated. The 1st of May was named to commemorate the leaders of the working class who were assassinated by the capitalist rulers for the struggle they carried out demanding an eight hour working day. Hence, it is the day that belongs o the working masses. Today is also the day millions of working masses together with anti-imperialist, progressive, democratic, humanitarian and environment friendly people display strength of their unity and camaraderie by raising the red banners of international solidarity. It is the day the working class displays their opposition to the repression of the working masses by capitalist ruling class.

‘National government’ issue is to protect fraudsters

There are many factors that influence the ‘national government’ proposal by the SLFP. If an election is held now the SLFP would lose its majority in Parliament. They want to maintain their majority. Also, the ‘national government’ is a good device to protect fraudsters and the corrupt of the previous government. The fraudsters and the corrupt have been terrified. We are confident that this government, unlike the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime, would not act outside the law.
