Support NSSP candidates’ campaign for peace

Monday 9 March 2009, by Vickramabahu Karunarathne

I am contesting Colombo district in the forthcoming provincial council elections. V Thirunavukkarasu, Chamil Jayaneththi, Dharmasiri Lankapeli, N. Jenagen, Mohamed Faizal, and Saranapala Silva will also contest with me in the same list.

This election will be very important as the very idea of devolution is condemned by powerful sections of the government and of the opposition. Nava Sama Samaja Party and the Left Front have consistently stood for the right of self determination of nationalities and for autonomy, as key points in formulating a political solution. Not only national minorities but also cast, creed and religious minorities will immensely benefit by provincial councils with more power. Hence, facing death threats we stood against chauvinism and religious sectarianism to defend these fundamentals, human rights and media freedom. Our struggle needs election gains too. 10,000 votes can secure a seat for the Left Front and the assets that come with a win in the PC elections will go a long way to build up our campaign.

My victory will be a victory for the above political position and my defeat will be a defeat for peace, a voluntary unity and power sharing.

You can do two things to help me:

1. Contribute to my election fund using the Commercial Bank account given bellow or otherwise sending to my address given there.

2. Persuade voters in the Colombo district to vote for us: LEFT FRONT--- TABLE.
