JVP planning to protest in Norway

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 13 June 2006, 11:30 GMT]
Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), the extreme Sinhala Nationalist party that espouses radical marxism, in a memorandum issued Tuesday in Colombo, said that they are planning to hold a demonstration in Norway protesting against the Norwegian Government. JVP Parliamentarian, Mr Vasantha Samarasinghe who is currently on a visit to Norway will co-ordinate the protest rally calling on the Sinhala diaspora community in Norway to join in the protest, the memorandum further said.

The protesters will demand the ouster of Minister Eric Solheim, and peace envoy Hans Baur, and will raise the awareness of Norwegians to the large sums of financial assistance Norway has provided to the Liberation Tigers during the period 1999 to 2006, the memorandum said.

The placards will also tell the Norwegians that Norway has provided military training to the Liberation Tigers and that Norwegian involvement in Sri Lanka's peace process has endangered the sovereignty of Sri Lanka, the memorandum said.

Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), the extreme nationalist party of Buddhist Monks, is also expected to join the protest, the JVP memorandum added.
