Suppression of News in Sri Lanka and Political
Statements Prevented from Reaching the People

      In Sri Lanka (Ceylon), as in so many other countries, much of the real news about what is happening to the working class, peasants and the poor, is suppressed, or at the very least not widely reported. And for reasons like this the claims that Sri Lanka enjoys a “democracy” and “a free press” are gross exaggerations of the true situation.

      In particular, the government has recently won a largely genocidal war against the Tamil people in the northern part of the country, and routinely oppresses revolutionary parties and organizations which attempt to promote the interests of the masses everywhere in the country. We at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET will try to help break down this government and media news embargo.
