    Let us show the three traitors they can not get away by selling the country to one of our biggest enemies.

  2. Fran Diaz Says:

    With you, NUTA ! Good luck.
    ETCA must be stopped, NOW !


    – Stop also the proposed 5,000 acre lot leases of 99 yrs to foreigners.
    – Stop also Ranil’s sea tunnel to Tamil Nadu.
    – Stop also any unfair and damaging items in the proposed New Constitution.

    All power to you to defeat the wretched Indian incursion into Sri Lanka. We can sign any agreement with a normal country. India is not a normal or friendly country to Sri Lanka. They are so selfish, uppish and cannot see beyond their noses when it comes to being ‘fare’.

    In the first place the former “Free Trade Agreement” must be seeing in all detail to see whether it has done any good to Sri Lanka. They are hell bent on balkanising Sri Lanka and for the formation of Eelam. Their intention is a bridge and a road straight to Trincomalee. They want the deep water harbour in Trincomalee for themselves.

    This has been proven time and again and we should not be “building bridges” to Indian Monkeys all over again.

    If we can float Sri Lanka away from the stinking Tamil Nadu we should do it not build bridges!

    All power to all patriots today in conducting another successful meeting at Hyde Park to expose the local traitors in cahoots with the Indian Imperialists.

    Theruwan Saranai!

    The deafening silence of the Joint Opposition on Indianization is worrying. Apart from Weerawansa and Gammanpila, no one in the Joint Opposition make convincing statements about the Indian invasion. If they can’t counter the Indian invasion now, they are useless for the nation and its voters. Mahinda, Dinesh and other leaders of the Joint Opposition must speak out against this Indian invasion or move out of leadership roles of the Joint Opposition.

    Bold action of NUTA and GMOA is much appreciated.

    However, NUTA doesn’t work for Mahinda. During the Rajapaksa regime, NUTA and connected groups caused plenty of trouble for the regime. The same can be said about GMOA. As they are the only fearless opponents of the Indian invasion, their members and/or the politicians supported by them will be greatly popular at the next election. Most likely, their blessings will go to a party that opposes Mahinda.

    This is why the Joint Opposition camp must be seen at the forefront of resistance against the Indian invasion. Otherwise, they will fail to capitalise on it at the next election. By 2014, Sri Lankans had clearly made the distinction between those who actually fought the war and those who gained credit for it.

    SLFP was not at the forefront of opposing the 1987 Indian invasion. Civil groups that were at the forefront of opposing the Indian invasion later aligned with Premadasa at the election. As a result, the SLFP lost the 1988 and 1989 elections failing to capitalise on it.

    Despite all her problems, Chandrika ended this cowardice of the SLFP and boldly took on state terror (“bheeshanaya”) without letting the JVP (contested under Sri Lanka Progressive Front in 1994) get electoral mileage. Workers’ rights is another area the SLFP put its head in the firing line in 1992-94 without letting the JVP and minor parties (LSSP, MEP) grab the protest vote. Even Mahinda, CV Gunaratna, Nimal Siripala De Silva, etc. played an extremely docile role until 1992 when Chandrika took hold of the PA and fearlessly confronted the government. Her dirty and spiteful speech became very handy. Otherwise UNP could have easily won the 1994 election as well.

    Similarly, the Joint Opposition must take up the case of Buddhism. It should join with Venerable Elle Gunawansa and Venerable Uduwe Dhammaloka or take it upon itself the task to pressure the UNP regime to stop destroying Buddhism. Otherwise, once again, key Buddhist monks (who have a strong say in politics) will amass all the credit for it. None of them has by default supported Mahinda in the past.

    All leaders of the Joint Opposition must stop ‘playing it safe’ when it comes to India and ‘inter-faith’ activists as voters call it cowardice. The protest vote is fragmented which actually helps the UNP.
