Galle rally gives a good boost - President
The Gazette notification to recommence fish exports to EU countries will be issued tonight (01), President Maithripala Sirisena says. The observation was made while speaking at the May Day rally of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) in Galle this afternoon (01). President Sirisena also went on to say it is vital to figure out reasons as to why some parties seek a federal solution to their issues, rather looking solutions for a federal solution. “This May Day rally would give a boost to the future of the country’s political system and to the SLFP,” he added. Meanwhile, the President in his May Day message further said, the red flag carried with pride by the workers around the world symbolizes the centuries old history of the collective victories achieved by them and their unity and solidarity. May Day is the day working people commemorate the unparalleled victories accomplished with the sacrifice of their blood, tears and sweat. The inspiration of the May Day could be acknowledged as the agony and misery of the working people experienced by them in the factories, working places, farmhouses or in any place they work. The gigantic mechanism called production runs as a result of the collective hard work done by the working people, the cogwheels of the production machinery. In each and every step put forward by the world marks the hard work, tears and sweat of labour. When the world commemorates the May Day, the utmost importance and recognition is bestowed on the worker who sheds tears and sweat. Every flag raised on the May Day is a salute to honour the sweat and tears that come from the lifeblood of the working people.
