The May Day commemoration organized by the JVP was held at the head office of the JVP at Pelawatta today (1st) with the slogans “Deplore committing murders! Defeat all extremisms! Build unity among people! ‘
May Day commemoration events of all main political parties including the JVP had to be curtailed due to the unprotected atmosphere propped up due to the suicide bomb attacks that were carried out by extremists in eight places in the island on Easter Sunday (21st).
However, the International Workers’ Day commemoration held by the JVP was participated by JVP Leaders, trade union leaders and representatives of various professional sectors.
The General Secretary of the JVP Comrade Tilvin Silva, the Member of the Political Bureau and the President of National Trade Union Center (NTUC) Comrade Lal Kantha, the Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayaka and several trade union leaders addressed the gathering.
