The JVP issued a press statement condemning the decision by the authorities to deploy STF troops in inspection within Welikada prison:
The media has reported that the number of prisoners who died in the clash that occurred in Welikada prison is nearly 30. This is the number that has been reported. The real number could be more. The cause of the clash is carrying out an inspection in the prison deploying STF troops. It is true that there are drugs, mobile phones and various other illegal things within the prison. The prison could be made free of them by closing the avenues they are brought to the prison. Deploying Army or STF troops for inspection or operations in the prison is an invitation to clashes that end in tragedy. There was a similar clash when police was deployed in an earlier instant for an inspection in the prison. Creating another situation for a similar clash when the experience of the earlier incident was obvious displays idiocy of the authorities.Read more...

(Full text of the speech made by Comrade Somawansa Amarasinghe’s at the ‘Che’ Commemoration organized by Socialist Youth Union (SYU) will be held at Viharamahadevi Open Air theater today (22nd) at 4.30 p.m.)
The open Air theater at Viharamahadevi Park is full of both male and female young comrades. The wind here too brings the fragrance of the youth today. (or has the wind become youthful seeing the energetic youth assembled here?) Despite the heavy rain you have assembled here to pay homage to Comrade Che Guevara. This rain is fine as it is a youthful rain. We would be very glad to get wet in this youthful rain!Read more...
