Dear Comrade and Colleague,
On 2011, In Katunayake, while participating in a peaceful rally to demand the workers’ right for protecting their statutory benefits (EPF/ ETF) our brother Roshen Shanaka was unjustly killed. Continuously, we have shown solidarity in demanding the justice for over these years, to his death – the releasing of Mahanama Thilakarathne Commission’s Report and compensation for our other sisters and brothers who took part in the protest and were beaten savagely and eventually lost their jobs.
For the fifth time we are gathering on Wednesday, 1st June 2016 at 3.00 p.m to 5.00 p.m at in front of the Presidential Secretariat Colombo 01 to commemorate the death of Com. Roshen Shanaka and to demonstrate our solidarity in demanding justice.
On behalf of the Free Trade Zone Solidarity, Trade Unions, and other Civil Society Organizations in Kataunayake (the organizing body) we invite you to participate at this event and request your/ your organization’s support in showing our solidarity to demand justice!
