Be prepared to sacrifice your lives: JVP Dissidents

13 November 2011 04:45 pm - 27     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


JVP dissidents, who called for a socialist revolution, today requested its cadres to be prepared to even sacrifice their lives for the cause following the example of the party’s founder leaders.

The JVP led Socialist Students Union National Organiser and Central Committee member Chamira Koswatte who delivered the key note address at the El Maha Samuluwa which was organised to commemorate the party’s founder leader Rohana Wijeweera and others at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium today said what is needed today is a real revolution to topple the present capitalists system as it is what the past comrades died for.

“Let us begin our battle to topple the current capitalist system which governs the country just like our fallen leaders and be prepared to sacrifice our lives as they did in 1971 and in 1989,” Mr. Koswatte said with much vigour in the midst of loud cheering from the crowds who gave him a standing ovation.

Mr. Koswatte had the crowds spell bound with stories on how past comrades met their deaths. He related how a 15 year old cadre attacked a member of the security forces just to save his fellow cadres from torture. “This 15 year old boy was lined up with three other cadres for torture and he suddenly decided to save his fellow cadres and bit a member of the security forces who was administering torture,” he said.

Coming up with another story he recalled how another cadre managed to urinated into the mouth of the person torturing him just minutes before he was killed. He said none of these cadres divulged any information despite the cruelty they were subjected to. “This was the kind of spirit which our late comrades had and which we should develop,”

Slamming the JVP Hirarchy he said those who are holding high posts in the party today do not have the right to commemorate the late comrades including Wijeweera and others as they have put the party on the wrong track forgetting the leftist line. “They can go before the commission of elections on behalf of the party but cannot claim Wijeweera and others as their leader and they don’t have the right to even walk close to his portrait,” he said.

    No, not again comrades. Try to organize yourselves as a democratic force, that is what our country needs right now after miserable failures of the opposition parties.

    Lack of democracy can lead the youth into violent path.

    Going to kill another Generation of young men and women ???

    Somar Monday, 14 November 2011 02:58 AM

    Comrades! You misled the poor youth twice and brought untold suffering to all citizens. You comrades hate all who have studied and worked hard to make a decent living. You hate people who speak English. Your leaders don't even have the courtesy to acknowledge a letter because the letter was written in English. Please forget the revolution and strive to capture power with the vote and not with the bullet.

    It looks like the armed forces just got themselves another task.

    Ravi Seneviratne Monday, 14 November 2011 03:24 AM

    Enough is enough , are you JVP trying to drag the country back to the 71/87 era ?

    M.Z.M.Farhad Monday, 14 November 2011 04:09 AM

    You can die on behalf of your party. But you cant kill people. Now forces are more equipped with high intelligence you need to find a peaceful way to put the nation in the right track. No more killing,burning,bombing,destroying assets,are accepted.

    Enough is enough. If the present set of JVP leaders try to mess around with the country as in 1971 and 1987/89 period , they should be properly dealt with this time witout letting these blood hungry polititians to ruin the country and the young lives .

    Thomas Monday, 14 November 2011 06:06 AM

    Another 1971 / 1987 type JVP resurrection is in the making.

    ex com. Monday, 14 November 2011 08:02 AM

    Marxist armed struggles will never be successful in Sri Lanka. Shorts, denims, bikinis revolution is the one likely to come.

    Assylum seekers !! take note !!

    seema perera Monday, 14 November 2011 08:33 AM

    Going to face another horror period, similar to 1971 and 1988/89.

    Sunny Monday, 14 November 2011 08:42 AM

    Who is funding these terrorists to create another blood bath in Sri Lanka? Who will gain by unleashing terror once again in this country? The US Ambassador to Sri Lanka - the lady with a false smile - had apparently drunk a toast to the "youth of Sri Lanka" at a recent gathering.

    All Sri Lankans have to be vigilant about these utterances, irrespective of party affiliations.

    Has the "hidden hand" that sponsored LTTE terror now shifted its deadly focus to the JVP youth?

    Ariya Sunday, 13 November 2011 05:21 PM

    There is no need to sacrifice your lives, just leave our country like Lionel Bopage, etc and maybe emigrate to North Korea.

    divi-may2 Sunday, 13 November 2011 06:39 PM

    the founders did not sacrifice jack.
    they paid for their crimes against people with their lives.

    that was well deserved thugs they were

    j Sunday, 13 November 2011 06:47 PM
