[TamilNet, Monday, 11 August 2003, 17:30 GMT]
The Marxist cum Sinhala nationalist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna, the third largest party in Sri Lanka’s parliament, Monday announced that it would hold a large demonstration and rally in Colombo Tuesday afternoon against the establishment of an Interim Administrative Structure for the northeast province and to “defeat the attempt by the United National Front government to bring foreign forces into the country in the name of peacekeeping forces.”

The demonstration would be held at Campell Park in Borella and it is expected that about fifty thousand people would participate in the protest demonstration, JVP sources said.

The JVP general secretary Mr.Tilvin Silva said that his party would hold the rally with the participation of other opposition parties and trade unions and this would be the first in a series to be held island-wide.
