Create righteous society to truly commemorate November Heroes
Comrade Nalinda Jayatissa
'November Heroes could be truly commemorated only by creating the righteous society they aspired for' says Comrade Nalinda Jayatissa addressing a seminar in London.

The 27th Commemoration of November Heroes that commemorates the founder of the JVP Comrade Rohana Wijeweera, Comrade Upatissa Gamanayaka and all those comrades who sacrificed their lives for the Motherland during 88-89 period was held in Vale Farm Sports Center Auditorium in London recently.

The commemoration speech of the ceremony organized by the JVP Committee in UK was delivered by the Member of the Central Committee of the JVP Kalutara District Parliamentarian Comrade Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa.

The seminar participated by a large number of JVP members, sympathizers and supporters who had come from all over the UK was chaired by the Organizer of the UK committee Comrade Darshana Hettiarachchi.

The participants paid their tributes to November Heroes with flowers and lighting candles in front of the elegant monument that was erected. What was significant was that tribute was also paid to Cuba's greatest revolutionary Comrade Fidel Castro.

Speaking further Comrade Nalinda Jayatissa said, "Comrades Rohana Wijeweera, Upatissa Gamanayaka and thousands of comrades sacrificed their lives for the liberation of the downtrodden masses in Sri Lanka". He said the responsibility of bringing victory to their magnanimous intentions is with genuine patriots in the country.

Comrade Nalinda Jayatissa said the UNP and the SLFP that have ruled the country for 68 years have proved that they are not able to solve the issues of the masses. He said frauds, corruption, waste and suppression are the characteristics of their rule and pointed out these parties have proved that they are unable to find solutions whether they rule alone or jointly. He said they have nothing new to give to the people other than unscientific, indiscriminating methods they have been following throughout their history.

Comrade Nalinda Jayatissa said the responsibility of the future of Sri Lanka has been thrust on the shoulders of the JVP that has been in the political arena for 51 years. He said Sri Lankans living abroad too has a great task to fulfill in the path towards liberation and said Sri Lankans living abroad should join the JVP committees in their countries to get a correct picture of the party. He said the foundation of victory is organizing the people in Sri Lanka and making them knowledgeable in politics.

Comrade Dharshana Hettiarachchi, the Organizer of UK Committee, and Comrade Ranjith Wijesiriwardena also spoke.
