NFF to rally parties against 13th Amendement

The National Freedom Front (NFF) has written to several parties across Sri Lanka, calling on them to rally together and form an alliance against the implementation of the 13th Amendment.

The party, which is a member of the ruling alliance, has written to 11 political parties, including Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), United National Party (UNP) Marxist People's Liberation Front (JVP), JVP splinter party Frontline Progressive Party, Jathika Hela Urumaya, Mahajana Eksath Peramuna and other leftist parties in the ruling United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) coalition.

The Tamil National Alliance and Sri Lanka Muslim Congress were not contacted by the NFF.

The NFF is headed by controversial government minister Wimal Weerawansa. See his and other comments by fellow like-minded politicians on the 13th Amendment here.

We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
