* Sri Lanka Marxist party to hold protest against the rising cost of living
Mon, Feb 28, 2011, 07:46 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has organized a protest demonstration in Colombo against the rising cost of living.

The demonstration will start tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. from Campbell Park. It will proceed to the famous Lipton Circus and hold a meeting there.

The JVP launched a massive propaganda campaign over the protest. Posters publicizing the event were seen today in all major cities across the country.

JVP internal sources say that the party had summoned all its forces to Colombo to ignite a Libya-type mass agitation against the government.

The JVP charges that the government has failed to provide relief to the people in the face of rising prices of essential items.
