THE PEOPLE DEMAND DEMOCRACY AND JUSTICE!
STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!
The People’s Movement for Justice and Democracy invites all citizens to join their protest for justice and democracy, on 4 November 2018 (today) from 12 noon to 7 pm at the Liberty Roundabout in Colpetty, Colombo.
Releasing a press statement the Movement says; “As citizens of this country and the rightful owners of democracy, we can no longer remain silent on the current political crisis. We cannot sit by and allow political parties and politicians to betray our democratic rights in their narrow pursuit of power.
We are not aligned to any political party, and have felt deeply, the failures of this, and past governments to uphold rights and justice, and to be accountable to the people. As responsible citizens we stand for and are committed to the Universal Democratic Principles”
මෙම උද්ඝෝෂණය කිසිදු දේශපාලන පක්ෂයකට සම්බන්ද නැති ස්වාධීන පුරවැසි උද්ඝෝෂණයක් බව ප්රකාශ කරමු. මෙම උද්ඝෝෂණය තමන්ගෙ දේශපාලන වාසි උදෙසා යොදා ගෑනීමට කිසිදු දේශපාලන පක්ශයක් විසින් දරනා උත්සාහයන්ට අපි තරයෙ විරුද්ධ වන්නෙමු. ප්රජාතන්ත්රවාදය හා යුක්තිය වෙනුවෙන් පෙනී සිටිනා පුරවැසියන් ලෙස එක්වන්න!
இந்த ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் பிரஜைகளின் ஆர்ப்பாட்டம். எந்த கட்சியையும் சார்ந்தது அல்ல. தமது நோக்கங்களை முன்னெடுத்து செல்ல, இந்த ஆர்ப்பாட்டத்தை பயன்படுத்த முயலும் அரசியல் கட்சிகளின் செயல்பாடுகளை நாங்கள் வன்மையாகக் கண்டிக்கிறோம். ஜனநாயகம் மற்றும் நீதிக்கான இந்த போராட்டத்தில் இந்நாட்டு பிரஜைகளாக பங்குகொள்ள கண்டிப்பாக வாருங்கள்.
We would like to re-emphasise that this protest is a CITIZENS’ protest, and is not aligned to ANY political party. We reject all attempts by any political party to co-opt this citizens’ action to pursue their party agendas. Please do come out as CITIZENS TO STAND FOR DEMOCRACY AND JUSTICE!
