Provincial Minister of Education K.Sarveswaran has called on all the Principals of the Northern Province to fly the Provincial Flag at half mast tomorrow , Friday, in view of the Muliwaikkal Commemoration and to pay silent tributes at 11.00 a.m.
In a press communiqué he had said that, we have fought for the last 70 years, to win the rights of our National race, first to non-violent means and then through armed struggle. Our Armed struggle was depicted as Terrorism, silenced at Mulliwaikkal in 2009, with the international community misled by Sri Lankan Government.
During our 30 years struggle we have sacrificed hundred thousands of people in the battle fronts. We have lost several thousands of lives and are unaware of what happened to thousands of others during the genocide finally committed against our people.
We had to strongly tell the International community that our struggle for the voice of our rights have not ended still and that justice has not been delivered to our relatives who had been killed and who had been made to disappear.
It is the duty of our nation to sentimentally remember people who have sacrificed their lives in the struggle for winning our rights.
