(The address by Comrade Tilvin Silva at the Red May Day rally held at BRC grounds)
There are many challenges that we have to overcome. This May Day is important forus to build strength that would enable us to overcome those challenges. The main challenge before us is to defeat imperialism and capitalism simultaneously. We could build a socialist society by defeating imperialism. However, this process is not easy or simple. What is before us is a very powerful imperialist challenge. It is necessary to build the ant-imperialist people’s movement to overcome this challenge. We are ready to take this new path.Read more...

“As soon as the commemoration of the International Workers’ Day was over the government has commenced increasing prices of commodities. A cylinder of LP gas has been increased by Rs.350/= and a bag of cement by Rs.70/=. A packet of 400 gram milk powder has been increased by Rs.61/= while a packet of a kilo gram has been increased by Rs.163/=.

Socialism, the noble expectation of all downtrodden masses would be achieved with many other victories on the way says the Leader of the JVP Comrade Somawansa Amarasinghe. He said this addressing the massive May Day rally held at BRC grounds on the 1st.
He said, Today we commemorate a historic May Day. The conspiracy launched internally and from outside has been defeated by us all. When we commemorated May Day last year many comrades in our party did not know there was a conspiracy being hatched against our party. We are commemorating this May Day after the conspiracy was exposed and it was defeated. Imperialism is breathing its last breaths. It acts ruthlessly for its survival. As such, conspiracies against us are not over. For, Socialism goes forward together with counter-revolution.Read more...

Capitalism has no solution for the present crisis Sri Lanka, that has been made a prey of imperialist ‘globalization,’ is confronted with at present.Read more...
