JVP lambasts peace talks

[TamilNet, Saturday, 09 November 2002, 20:07 GMT]
“It is very foolish to believe that Norway, which is America’s quisling, would bring peace to our country. America is trying to oppress and rule over the people of the world. It is America that has unleashed terror on Iraq, Cuba, Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Eritrea,” said the Janata Vimukthi Permamuna (JVP), currently a powerful third force in Sinhala politics, in a pamphlet issued Saturday at the conclusion of a house-to-house campaign against the peace process.

The Sinhala nationalist JVP exhorted its supporters and the public to rally round its cause and to start an agitation against the “Norwegian traitors” and the “government of the traitors, Ranil, G. L, Moragoda and Hakeem, who are betraying the motherland.”

The JVP sent out groups of its cadres on a door-to-door campaign in all the villages and towns of the Sinhala majority districts of the island from 27 October to distribute pamphlets and to convince the public that the Norway mediated talks between Colombo and the Tigers were an insidious conspiracy to destroy the Sinhala nation.

“In what direction is the UNP, the lackey of the western imperialism, headed? Western imperialism is destroying the world,” the JVP pamphlets say.

“Let us save our motherland from the treacherous gang of Norway, Ranil and Prabha” the JVP pamphlets state.

On the last day of the massive door to door campaign against a negotiated settlement to the island’s ethnic conflict, small groups of the JVP attempted to even convince Tamils in Colombo that the only solution was to keep the LTTE strictly out of the affairs of the village and town, until they learn it the hard way.
