* Marxist movement in Sri Lanka campaigns against issues faced by the judiciary
Thu, Nov 29, 2012, 07:56 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) affiliated People's Movement for Democracy has commenced a public awareness campaign against issues faced by the judiciary and the threat to democracy.

A leaflet distribution campaign was held today in the Hultsdorf area, under the theme "Defeat family rule - Rally for Democracy."

JVP Politburo member and parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the government is engaged in destroying individuals and institutions that oppose it.

He observed that the first step was to attack journalists and media institutions and now it is the judiciary that has become the latest victim of the anti-democratic actions of the government.

According to Dissanayake, the impeachment motion brought against the Chief Justice is the height of the government's anti-democratic actions.

"We believe that all those who expect good governance and cherish democracy in the country should be more concerned regarding this situation. We call upon all masses to rally against the idiotic and the rage of Rajapaksa regime," he said.
