* Marxist movement in Sri Lanka blames government for making way for imperialists' intervention
Wed, Jan 16, 2013, 11:09 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 16, Colombo: The Anti-imperialist People's Movement of Sri Lanka has blamed the government for allowing imperialists to intervene in the country's affairs due to the government's action.

Co-convener of the Movement, Ven. Dambara Amila Thero said that the impeachment process to remove the Chief Justice has resulted in the international community focusing its attention on Sri Lanka and expressing its concerns, which eventually results in attempts to interfere in the country's' affairs.

He said that sections of the international community including the Secretary General of the Commonwealth have expressed concern over the situation developing in Sri Lanka.

He added that the USA, Canada and many other countries have also expressed concern.

"Imperialists say the government's move is undemocratic and violated human rights. Unfortunately, when imperialists make use of this situation to interfere in the country people wouldn't oppose such interference since the government through its undemocratic actions has created an environment for the people to believe that only a foreign intervention would teach a lesson to the dictatorial rulers," Ven. Amila Thero said.

Explaining that the government has moved towards a dictatorship that has taken over all sectors of the country, the thero said the mood that is developing in the country due to this situation is harmful.
