Global capital and its ruling organizations failed miserably in this tsunami disaster to warn us in time.

In spite of all claims of cyber power and high technology, the world proved to be a non village. We were no more aware than King Kelani Tissa in the 3rd century BC, when the first recorded tsunami struck the Sri Lanka west coast.

We appeal to all democratic forces to press global capitalist leaders to cancel all our existing debt, at least at this moment of disaster.
