Sri Lanka: Brutal attack on leader of the United Socialist Party

Siritunga Jayasuriya, secretary of the United Socialist Party (CWI Sri Lanka) and some associates in the ’United People’s Movement’ escaped with their lives when over 300 armed thugs, led by a deputy minister, raided the place where a public rally was due to be held 9 January in Colombo.

After the recent Committee for a Workers’ International (CWI) Congress, Siri spoke to a CWI Rally about the situation in Sri Lanka.
