JVP Vows To Fight For The Rights Of Oppressed LGBTIQ+ Community

JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva vowed to fight for the rights of those from the LGBTIQ+ community, facing oppression.

In one of the most progressive political speeches made in the recent past, the JVP frontliner made a public pledge to fight for the rights of all those facing oppression.

Tilvin Silva

“We stand for the rights of the working class…The working class is being oppressed by the bourgeoisie. Within the working class are those who face further oppression due to their gender or sexual orientation etc.,” he said.

Silva told the crowd that due to various cultural and sometimes legal reasons, those from the LGBTIQ+ community face various issues. He vowed to stand with them and work against the oppression they are facing.

“Depriving someone of their entitled rights based on their physical appearance or their sexual orientation is not acceptable…We don’t agree with any type of oppression,” he added.

Silva went on to note further that the JVP does not wish to be part of a political journey that aims to only win elections while dragging the country into defeat.

“Racial tensions are stirred to exploit votes but that victory is short lived. People’s security cannot be ensured by stirring racial tensions…Weaknesses in public security can be exploited by external forces to a point that it turns into a threat to national security,” he added.

        Seems that AKD and JVP flying the LGBTQ flag, (like the NGO saree ladies who came out to protect Bondscam Ranil with clown Sira did the coup with Mahinda Jarapassa), has been bought by the US embassy in Sri Lanka. Nothing wrong of course with LGBTQ, but using LGBTQ identity politics for the neo liberal neo con project to turn Lanka into a US base is a problem

        USA and its Special Operations Forces (SOF) that staged the Easter Sunday blasts are a massive NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT to Sri Lanka, but the JVP has not even mentioned this.

        JVP should have called for US puppet Bondscam Ranil’s impeachment now that all is known how he plans to turn Sri Lanka into a US colony with SOFA, ACSA and MCC, and stay in power as US backed dictator while flying the LGBTQ flag

        US embassy in Colombo must be closed down. FBI and CIA have destroyed evidence of the crime, taken phones of the suicide bombers and need to be sent packing. MCC can keep its 480 blood dollars.
        Sri Lanka does not need its just as Palastine refused 50 billion.
        500 billion would not be enough after the Easter Sunday crime and on-going weaponization of Buddhism and Islam in Sri lanka and Myanmar by US contractors to fight its proxy war on China and Cold War on Asia

          “Seems that AKD and JVP flying the LGBTQ flag, (………………………..), has been bought by the US embassy in Sri Lanka.

          It appears you are the only one US Embassy has not successfully bought yet.
          What is your price?
          In return what are you willing to sell?
          What do you really have worth buying?

          AKD wants to be Prez and has sold his soul to the Devil. Bottom line is JVP should call for impeachment of US puppet bondscam Ranil instead of supporting him while playing games.
          JVP should identify the true danger to Sri Lanka which is the 1) USA and its Special Operations Forces (SOF) that organized the Easter Crime; 2)US puppet Bondscam Ranil and his financially illiterate Finance Minister, Mangala the Moron, and the butterfly network who are in the pay of the USA along with Prasad Kariyawasam and othere; 3) American SOF weaponization of Buddhism and Islam

          JVP should educate the masses on the fact that the US Special Operations Forces (SOF) own and operate IS and were behind the Easter Sunday suicide bombings to Divide, distract and Rule Sri Lanka – get SOFA and MCC agreements while pretending to fight terrorism. FBI and CIA were already in the country to cover up and destroy the evidence – although police sniffer dogs found US fake diplomats with bomb materials at JAIC Hilton. FBI and CIA must reveal how IS came to Sri Lanka but no news or arrests of foreigners involved in the Easter disaster
          JVP should educate the masses instead of playing poker games to benefit the USA and Bondscam Ranil!

        Monks have so far have managed to protect Buddhism from all threats. If not for them we would have first become Hindu then Islam or Christian nation longtime long ago. Fools like you need to learn history before educating monks.

      Not just LGBTPLUS but also any kind of discriminations based on race, religion and gender, sex orientation should loudly be banned. If anyone would abuse their mouth should be shot dead on the spot.
      Then we can make a real good world iwthin slaves dominated island.
      We need enforcement of rigours law and order. Work to rule as was the case in China under Mao. Those who hidden behing RED ROBEs just because of their laziness should be brought to paddy field replacing the Meeharakas who are the innocient animals. Ghanasara or the like became HIGH by the media institutions that worked with Rajaakshe men. These men were nothing but ones suffered by Inferiority complex for some reasons. May well be, he could have been molested by his Guru Hamuduruwo. I know how it likes to go to DAHAM pasala and get molested in that part of the world, We talk high about our 2500 years history but most that abuse the ALMS giving being offered by the poor, abuse them today to the core.
      Just imagine that Ballige putha of Mangalaramaya, the manner this aggressive monk behaves in public is sending the message across that MONK IMAGE shouldb e that rascal like to surivve in the kind of boarder villagers. Is this right ?
      Wiraja or Madhu madawas – so called Artists of the day, made C prominent figures abuse their freedomw thanks to the HIGHLY abusive lanken media ethics which should actually introduce better systems protecting our youth. Youth re the future of the county, but Negambo Lanza or thecondom support for Pohottuwa has the same features when it goes to fool the nation. He being ONE of the key drug traffickers into the country, but shed crocodile tears at the time, those extremists killed the innocient prayers on the EASTER sunday bombing. Latter is no different to Ghanasra s behavour who abuse his mouth inflicing riots on Muslim srilanken but at the end of the day, he recites, Kawibana to please the SINAHLA community.

      It is scientifically researched and proved beyond any doubt that LGBTQ+ is natural by birth (born that way) among humans and animals. It is also a globally accepted fact as per modern medical science that LGBTQ+ is no longer a question of morality but something to do with the biological aspect of one’s life and is inborn. This truth has been acknowledged by the modern civilized world. In modern society irrespective of whether it is west or east, the LGBTQ+ are treated not only as normal but are even provided with special facilities. It is not a mental illness or any kind of addiction as believed in the primitive days. Only totally ignorant complete idiots will call it a sickness and oppose it. #

      In terms of religion they say, on the 8th day God/Nature became more creative and made the LGBTQ+ community. It is just another natural evolution or creation of God. If there is any Religion that rejects LGBTQ+ as unnatural then that religion is obsolete (exceeded the date of expiry). Unfortunately, people believe in anything that the religion says but not what science says. Sadly, LGBTIQ+ community is oppressed in certain countries due to stupid and obsolete religious beliefs. JVP should be commended for fighting for the rights of oppressed LGBTIQ+ community.

    In here, their rights are first to marry, then to adopt children and grow up children with two fathers and no mother or those with two mothers but no father, the child doe snot know how he came all messed up. TGhen they fight for divorce rights. Finally, they say I was experimenting with my sexuality and finally, I decided to marry my opposite sex. That is what happened Allan Degenerous.
    How about 50 shades of GRAY, will JVP give their rights too.
    Or is it like Thun Sinhale Ethnic politics. Only LTTE Tamils have rights, Only protestants, International community, NGO kaakkas and their LOCAL CHAPTER UNP, RANIL AND MANGALA can dictate what should Sinhala buddhists and bhikkus do or talk.

    People,
    Save you youngsters from these lunatics who get paid by NGOs. JVP is not a serious political party. They led thousands of Sinhala youth to their deaths. They are ordered only to be anti-government by their mysterious masters.
    /
    Allegedly, the JVP was created by the then British government and the UNP to attack Sirimawo. Some JVP member(s) was involved in failed Sirimawo kidnapping plot. Some JVP terrorist leaders of 70s and 80s are in Canada, Britain, Australia, France, Switzerland, Norway, etc living in luxury. These JVP leaders may have escaped from the justice but they can’t escape from mighy karma.

    Has Dr Ranil leased the JVP again?…

    Last time it was only a lousy LKR 25 Lakhs , according to the ex UNP Justice Minister Dr Wijedasa.
    Which turned out to be the bargain of the Century, after Yahapalana Rulers raked in LKR 34 Mil each on just one Car permit without the ” Cut” from the Yahapalana Bonds.

    Wonder why Mangala Samare divorced Dr Ranil ,
    And declared that Samare got the “Suuthare ” in Matara ( the Formula) to make Kedelwatta Kid the next UNP President…

    I thought this Tilin Silva and his Boss Anura Kumara would have held this LGBT Rally also in Matara to declare their Fight for the Rights of the Proletariat..
    At least a day after Samare had his 30th B” day Bash there.in Politiricks of Course..

    Instead they have picked Jubilee Post in Nugegoda , where the Per Capital Income must be in at least USD 15.to 20. thou Range..

    Talahena Land value has topped LKR 800 thou a Perch , Just imagine how much a Perch in Jubilee Post now where Tilin Silva was addressing the Oppressed in Nugegoda..

        Dear Native,

        I just read DS.s comment..I know AKD got LKR 25 Lakhs, from Dr Ranil. , who works closely with the US.-
        .
        But I didn’t know that AKD would join the UNP LGBT Faction also for the same Fee..
        Good on younAKD .
        And I am very happy about it.

        Our LGBT communities in the Villages are having a tough time both Economically and Socially just like those in Hindia.
        Now the JVP can claim to have dome something at least for one section of our Proletariat, who made those Village Boys to become Millionaire Poltikkas who now dine at Srikotha…

        I am sure the JVP Heavies like Lal Kantha, Tilvin Silva and that Dude on the Bond Thing must have given the full Central Committee Approval .

        Going forward, the JVP seems to be the Real Deal , Broad Based Democratic Political Force now, embracing Mr Abraham from the TNA and Mr Ibrahim Senior from the Muslim Community.

        Tell me Native, does the TNA have a LGBT Faction?..
        Will AKD put the Hand Up to be the Next President?..

          Sivajilingam speaks very good Sinhala or C Wigneshwaran for that matter.
          You should ask them
          By the way do you think it is a huge issue for TNA?
          Sambandan should have known the SLFP’s serving gay prime minister.

            And Sampathar has joined Mangala Samare….

    Jathiya Vinashakarana Peramuna (JVP) is carrying out the contract of Unpatriotic National Party (UNP). UNP and a section of Sri Lanka Farting Party (SLFP) wants to have a general election before Presidential election thinking of making a ‘Jathika Aanduwa’. If Presidential election is held first followed by a general election, both UNP and SLFP will get wiped out. JVP, you guys started ruining this country in 1971. Keep up with your good work.

    LGBTQ is a huge threat to the natural steps of becoming an adult. This will destroy the young generation like in Scandinavia.
    ..
    1st step of a child is to create a strong bond with their parents.
    ..
    Second step is to explore bonding with the same sex. When they grow strong friendship then only they will look at the third stage.
    ..
    Third step is to explore bonding with the opposite sex. Once they get comfortable in this stage only they are ready to explore life in a mature sense.
    ..
    Every one should have human rights but we should not blindly follow a community through love, assuming this won’t affect the future generations to come.
    ..
    It’s against all the religious doctrines as well. Saying yes to them is telling religions require change according to someone’s sexual appetite.
    ..
    If someone claimed, “this hand of mine is not mine”, you will call the person crazy.
    ..
    When a man goes and claim, “I’m a woman”, how does that becomes sensible?
    ..
    Don’t discriminate against sexual orientation but don’t promote it through legalizing.
    ..
    Without adequate social pressure lot of our children won’t complete the third stage.
    ..
    Sadly the new religion of the world is sex. JVP is definitely going with the popular view rather than the moral view.

    This is a positive development for Sri Lankan politics. Unlike the outdated uni-dimensional class struggle of the Dead Left, the JVP is moving in the right direction taking into account the complex, multi-faceted nature of inequality and domination in today’s postmodern, global capitalism. Orthodox Marxism collapsed because of its vulgar reduction of all social conflict to economic causes. This crude economic determinism offers no help in confronting social injustices based on ethnicity/race, gender and sexuality. These forms of oppression are on the rise, with significant impact on the youth, especially the Millennials, irrespective of their class backgrounds. And we know their votes play a key role in determining election results.
    .
    Now this matter of JVP taking up the cudgels on behalf of the LGBTIQ+ Community is a case of ‘worst nightmare coming true’ for the SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES such as Sira and the Taliban Buddhists, Mulla Ranjith’s followers, Born-Again Evangelicals, and the Sharia Islamists. Maybe they’ll form a UNITED FRONT against the SOCIAL PROGRESSIVES – the JVP and the Butterflies….. Oh … What a Delight.

      The Left did not always take a rigid view of sexuality.
      It inherits some of the prejudices of the dominant ideology, but is open to discussion and correction.
      In the Philippines, the communist guerillas endorsed same-sex marriages more than a decade ago.
      Cuba de-criminalised homosexuality long ago.
      What calls itself Left need not be really Left.

      “They said socialism is the only way to end discrimination of Tamils.

      The JVP was officially a racist party with Wijeyweera’s political classes describing the up country hard working people as being Hindia’s Fifth column and was in bed with Mahinda’s clan, supported even when workers and innocent civilians were mercilessly massacred.

      The way things are AKD wouldn’t mind sleeping with Mahinda/Gota.

        UN Peacekeepers: Keeping the peace or preventing it?
        by Nimmi Gowrinathan & Kate Cronin-Furman
        2 May 2017

        In 2007, more than 100 Sri Lankan peacekeeping troops were sent back to their home country from Haiti in disgrace as a result of sexual abuse allegations. The Sri Lankan government promised to investigate and prosecute the guilty but it has not done so. While the Ministry of Defence has stated that 20 members of the contingent were subjected to disciplinary sanctions in 2009, no one has been prosecuted. And Sri Lankan troops have continued to deploy with UN peacekeeping missions in Haiti and elsewhere.
