The Freedom Alliance May Day rally in Colombo has witnessed massive crowds never heard of in recent history.
The massive May Day rally of the Freedom alliance was organized with the participation of 16 constituent parties themed “A drop of Sweat for the Motherland and a Public Fortress to protect the country.” An outstanding feature was the crowds in their thousand from all parts of the country, including the North and East, participating in the May Day rally. The Northern and Eastern civilians left for Colombo last night. Their arrival was captured by our correspondents. By this afternoon every road was congested with crowds which had thronged Colombo. The working population joined in the May Day celebrations symbolizing that they were with the President as a fortress in the journey towards making Sri Lanka “Asia’s Miracle.”
