Massive Campaign By JVP Against Amendments

Sep 2, 2010 12:35:13 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The JVP has decided to intensify its campaign against the government’s proposed constitutional amendments.

The JVP is to launch an island wide campaign to distribute handbills against the constitutional amendments today (2). The campaign is to commence from Fort in Colombo.

The leaflet distribution campaign will be launched by the JVP leaders today and will be carried out in all districts.

A JVP politburo member told The Sunday Leader that the party is currently engaged in sending letters to all legislators asking them to vote against the amendments when they are taken up in parliament next week.

“The party is also planning on holding a massive protest rally next week against amendments as well,” he said.

The party has already launched a series of seminars against the government’s constitutional amendments that is being conducted in all districts in the country.

Following the Cabinet decision to approve the amendments and the government deciding to present them before parliament next week, the JVP launched an island wide poster campaign calling for the defeat of the constitutional amendments.
