JVP London Semina.


On the 19th of May 2013, a conference was held at Vale farm Sports centre in Sudbury ; Harrow , Middlesex. The event was organized by the J.V.P committee of the U.K to discuss present situation of democracy in Sri Lanka .

Vijitha Herath, a J.V.P polity bureau member and a member of Sri Lankan parliament, was the main speaker. Many Sri Lankans attended this successful event, each from different backgrounds and ethnicities.

During the conference, M.P Vijitha Herath emphasized the importance of safe-guarding democracy in Sri Lanka .

After 30 years of a blood-shed civil war, the government had a golden opportunity to rebuild the country and also, more importantly to re-erect the unity among the Singhalese, Tamil and Muslim people of Sri Lanka . However, the government missed this opportunity. After 4 years, effects of the war still go on, people who were displaced from their homes still live in shelters without even ground facilities despite this the government spent huge amounts of money to celebrate the victory of the civil war.

In spite of everything so far, the government chooses to ignore the industries that could easily be improved, instead they decide to borrow huge loans from the International Monitory Fund (IMF), China and India all with dreadful conditions. They use those loans to exhibit the countries prosperity, by boasting a collection of new harbours, highways and air ports endangering the people to enormous debt.

MP Vijitha Herath invited all Sri Lankan expatriates to unite under the J.V.P banner to bring unity, harmony and prosperity to Sri Lanka .
