* Sri Lanka's Marxist party adopts a policy to build a new Socialist system
Wed, Feb 5, 2014, 09:08 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 05, Colombo: The new leader of Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake making his maiden speech after assuming the new post said the party has adopted a policy to build a new Socialist system.

At the party's seventh convention held Sunday, Dissanayake said that the party has adopted resolutions to build a strong center for mass struggles to confront the challenges the country is faced with and a broad election front under the leadership of the JVP; and a new policy for a new Socialist social system to replace the existing vicious economic policies.

He said that the JVP convention was held at a time when the country is faced with many threats.

"On one hand an economic crisis has been created and the masses are being tormented. On the other hand institutions like the judiciary and legislature have been brought under the hegemony of a family. The supremacy of the law has broken down. Also, imperialism is being allowed to drag our country to the guillotine. The country is being made a den of heroin, casino and ethanol. The fundamental rights such as education and health are being slashed and the masses are being plagued," Dissanayake said.

He explained that the JVP is a movement created on high ideals of winning national independence, build national unity, achieve equality and justice and build Socialism in the country.

"The JVP is the strongest political movement that consists of members who did not betray the policies of the party amidst the threat of death. Ours is a political party that has created people who would sacrifice their lives for a noble independence, national unity, equality and justice," Dissanayake further noted, adding that the party will not stop until a Socialist system is established in the country.
