The Socialist Equality Party (SEP) and International Students for Social Equality (ISSE) will hold their final public meeting on January 23 in Colombo to conclude the party’s presidential election campaign.
The SEP candidate Wije Dias is the only one who is advancing a socialist perspective to defend the democratic rights and living standards of working people. The SEP fights for a workers’ and farmers’ government in Sri Lanka as part of the struggle for socialism throughout South Asia and internationally.
President Mahinda Rajapakse and his rival General Sarath Fonseka are both responsible for the devastating consequences of the war that ended with the defeat of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). Rajapakse’s promise of a new era of peace and prosperity has proven to be a lie. As soon as the election is over, the next government will launch a savage new assault on the social position of the working class.
The SEP is campaigning to prepare working people for the class battles ahead. We warmly invite workers, housewives, youth and intellectuals to attend our meeting and participate in this important discussion about the SEP’s socialist program and perspective
Main speaker: Wije Dias, SEP General Secretary
Venue: Public Library Auditorium, Colombo.
Time: Saturday, January 23, 3.00 p.m.
