The Rising: Nugegoda Feb 18th

“Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight” 
– Bruce Springsteen: The Rising

There was a WANTED poster out for Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday at Nugegoda, and it wasn’t one for crimes of corruption, human rights violation, dictatorship pasted by the JVP. It was a WANTED poster made of over a hundred thousand persons, which said that he was Wanted by the people, by the nation, as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

I must have attended an Opposition rally in Sri Lanka which was larger than the one in Nugegoda on February 18th but I can’t remember which, where and when. It must have been back in the 1960s, when my father took me for the United Front rallies of the SLFP-LSSP-CPSL. A more objective source, unrelated to the UPFA, told me on the phone last night that he saw parallels in the largest of the rallies of the DUNF when Lalith and Gamini led it.

Whichever the more appropriate parallel, Nugegoda was quite distinct in my experience, for a different reason. It was the most emotional, energetic and enthusiastic crowd I have seen at a public meeting in Sri Lanka, and that emotion wasn’t against anyone. It was for someone and something. This, together with the numbers, made the event a turning point, and potentially historic.

The main players at Nugegoda were not the personalities who organized it or addressed the gathering. It was the people. They were packed tightly together, spilling over and swarming the area, more enthusiastic than an American football crowd, waving Sri Lankan flags and posters of Mahinda Rajapaksa.

There was another main player at the Nugegoda meeting and he wasn’t even there. That was Mahinda Rajapaksa. It would have been the classic case of what Prof AW Singham named in his book “The Hero and the Crowd”, except that this time the hero wasn’t there and was there at the same time. The absent presence was of course, Mahinda, whose name was roared out by the crowd; welling up from its bowels.

It was as if the personalities on the stage were facilitators and conductors of that energy that came from the crowd. It was an energy that ran along an invisible circuit extending from Nugegoda to Medamulana and back.

The message from the rally had two intended audiences: Maithripala Sirisena and Mahinda Rajapaksa. The message was that Maithripala Sirisena was safe, unchallenged, acknowledged as President but that the same did not go for the unelected Prime Minister and his UNP government. The message was that the people want Mahinda back in the equation; that the 58 lakhs that voted for him and the 58% of the Sinhala majority that voted for him, will not go unrepresented; almost disenfranchised. The message was also that Mahinda Rajapaksa will not be allowed to enjoy a peaceful retirement and that his people have at least one more national service they expect from him, which is to defeat the anti-national Ranil Wickremesinghe as Prime Minister and institute an SLFP administration.

It is not an attempt at overturning President Sirisena or putting the clock all the way back. It is not a restorationist attempt. It is an attempt at re-balancing, at pressing the re-set button in Sri Lankan politics, so that the 58 lakhs (and percent of the 74% majority) do not go unrepresented.

For me the most emblematic scene of the Nugegoda public meeting calling for Mahinda Rajapaksa’s return to politics as the Prime Ministerial candidate of the Sri Lanka freedom Party and the UPFA was that of a young man atop a billboard whose response to the drone camera eyeballing it with him, was to wave a lion flag and Mahinda Rajapaksa’s portrait into the eye of the camera. That was gesture of defiance and proud defiance was what the ingathering was all about.

One of the political highlights of the public meeting was the presence of a significant number of SLFP MPs and ex-MPs, Chief Minister Ranatunga, Provincial Councilors, and local government representatives.

Overall the speeches were of high political quality, with progressive veterans Podi Appuhamy, Vasu, and Dinesh giving classic performances. The younger stars, Wimal Weerawansa, a pure Jacobin orator and Udaya Gammanpila, seemingly softer and more humorous, if you ignore the glint in his eye, turned in superb performances. The senior-most speaker, Dinesh Gunawardena spoke last and appropriately evoked anti-UNP memories not only of 1956 but more emphatically of 1960, in which there were two elections, the first won by the UNP and the second by the SLFP under a new leadership which could bring out the votes.

The Nugegoda meeting seemed to me the birth of a national-democratic movement and the launch of a national-democratic struggle to establish a national-democratic government. It was profoundly democratic in that it refused to accept the legitimacy of a Government which had neither won an election nor obtained the confidence of the majority of the Parliament. It was democratic also in that it sought to question the appointment of the leader of the opposition by a President who installed an unelected Prime Minister and Government. Finally it was democratic as it sought to rectify the anomaly of 5.8 million voters (and the 58% of the 74 % majority of the population) going unrepresented in the power equation.

The movement is national in the senses that it is proud of the valiant victory over Tiger terrorism and separatism, stands for the defence of national sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity against centrifugal forces and external pressures such as the genocide Resolution of the Northern Provincial Council and Foreign Minister Samaraweera’s written pledge to the UN Human Rights High Commissioner to “work together on developing a domestic mechanism on accountability”.

It is national also in the sense that it taps into a deep emotional wellspring of Sinhala nationalism in the service of a strong patriotism. It is Sinhala nationalist without being anti-Tamil or anti-Muslim in any manner, though it is against anything that is latently secessionist or of detriment to national security. This is a Sinhala nationalism that cannot but stand naturally at the center and in the vanguard of a Sri Lankan nationhood and Sri Lankan patriotism but in no way seeks to dominate the minorities. This is a nationalism and a patriotism that is directed outward, against external threats and their domestic beachheads and agencies (most notably Ranil Wickremesinghe’s UNP government) but does not seek to dominate domestic minorities. It is a patriotism and nationalism that seeks to re-energize the Sri Lanka Freedom Party and the UPFA.

This is not the patriotism that will be applauded by the cosmopolitan Colombo elite which is delirious that happy days are here again. This is a patriotism of the people; a people that refused, to give into terrorism and secessionism and remains determined to see through their guises and resist. The audience at Nugegoda was one of the masses; the people, those who fought in and supported the war; those whose sons and daughters went off to fight and die in defence of their country so that we could all live in peace. They are grateful to Mahinda Rajapaksa because it was he who gave the committed leadership that none of his predecessors, most conspicuously Ranil and Chandrika could not or did not. They are grateful for the peace we now enjoy.

These masses, from the middle and what Gramsci would call the subaltern classes, are not willing to be ruled by the unelected, anti-national elitist UNP of Ranil Wickremesinghe. This was a fusion of the nation and the people; what Gramsci terms the “national-popular”. Thus the Nugegoda mobilization was the birth of a popular movement of national—and nationalist– Resistance. It signaled a people’s national/ist Renaissance.

Throughout the meeting was the rising chant from the crowd, “Mahinda! Mahinda! Apata Oney Mahinda! (“We want Mahinda!”)”. So Wimal was probably right when he said to rapturous applause “Mahinda is not a name, Mahinda is a country!” The great Vietnamese leader Le Duan who succeeded the legendary Ho Chi Minh and led the anti-imperialist war to victory often said ‘Socialism and the Nation are One’. For the people who swarmed over Nugegoda in February 18th, Mahinda Rajapaksa and the Nation are One.

It was veteran leftist Vasudeva Nanayakkara who struck the basic moral-ethical and even philosophical chord that unified everyone at the massive mobilization in Nugegoda, when he declared and repeated: “It is not defeat that is a disgrace, it is surrender!”

“’Cause we made a promise we swore we’d always remember
No retreat, baby, no surrender
Blood brothers on the summer’s night
With a vow to defend
No retreat, baby, no surrender” –

      RE: Crooks and Robbers Rally at Nugegoda.

It was a WANTED poster made of over a hundred thousand persons, which said that he was Wanted by the people, by the nation, as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.”

      Wow!. There were 100,000 people who were part of the Crooks and Robbers program.

      I was under the impression, it was the shills and whitewashers only, so they mist have used the leftover cash from the robberies to to pay and get all the gollayas to come.

      Did anybody try to burn the stage like your Medamulana MaRa boss and his cronies tried to do for the opposition rallies before the election.

      Unfortunately for MaRa and their cronies, people know their truth. Not everybody who went there was a supporter. They went there to hear what the crooks and robbers had to say.

      What did they say?

      We are crooks and Robbers, and Would use Communalism To to get back to the business of Crooks of robbers and killers. Unfortunately, fewer and fewer Sinhala modayas left, just like the Tamil Mootals.

      Have you hears of Lasantha Wickramatunga?

      So, it was the Shameless “Socialist” Robber and Crook, Vasudeva Nanayakkara. A true example of a shill and white=washer. Others have sold out their principles before for being crooks and runners, but not to the same extent.

      Isn’t it ironical that every once decent PhD holder in the political limelight today had tried to flirt with the devil and got his robes removed and remains stark naked today? Unable to contain their desire for ephemeral fame they’re forced quite involuntarily to engage in political intrigue that results in nothing but shamelessness. Professor GL Peiris,Professor Rajiva Wijesinghe to name a couple. They did a lot when they taught students but today they’re an unquestionable public disgrace. Dayan sensing an opportunity to become the next Foreign Minister has started his shopping. Should stooping reach this kind of shameless heights?

      lANKEN PEOPLE IF GUIDED BY MR ET AL ARE THIRSTY OF ABUSIVE AND SELFISH CULTURE. They only want to see it otherway around to succeed their own agendas. If they could feel the pulses of the majoirty of this country, Rajaapakshe could have made the island nation a greater one at least during the last few years alone.
      No, nothing, but people are made blind by his kind of abusive culture – today not many would tick it right… even if Fuel or other items and their prices have been reduced as pledged not many would be grateful to that. That is the real nature of those abusive men and women or lanka today.

    What a damn fool. The drone camera belonged to the organisers of your beloved nugegoda rally! No young man needed to be defiant in the face of it. The drone was there for aerial shots of the bring back mahinda rally. Drones were widely used in Dayan’s beloved mahinda rallies during the campaign too. Dayan’s imbelicity aptly portrayed. Good to see him standing with the most racist, bigoted elements of our society on stage yesterday. From Elle Gunawansa to Udaya Gammanpila..with the BBS that he claims to be opposed to pressing people to attend the rally. Exactly where he should be. On the fringes. While Sri Lanka moves on.

    DJ says the Nugegoda meeting seemed to him like the birth of a democratic movement. My foot!. The meeting was organized by a coterie of so called leftists who have no one to cling to but a plunderer of the nations wealth!.Of course there was a crowd, obviously the foolish die hard remnants of the 58 lakhs who wanted to continue the plunder. DJ the long time mouthpiece of MR was there in person.

    Applauding Wimal.Weerawansa and his hideous anti minority record and rhetoric. Clearly not listening to the speakers yesterday if he thinks the noise at the Nugegoda rally was not against minorities.By his own writing it is made abundantly clear that he wishes the minorities had no say in this election and that the 58% majority of the majority held sway and his master was returned to power.
    Oh Dayan. How the mighty have fallen.

You have been cheating the vulnerable of this island nation from that day on. Man you seem to have no life – think twice for the sake of the academics. Wimal Buruwansa et al are just for the social scum that needed to achieve everything through this abuses and crimes. I really don think you need that.

    The TRUE majority in Sri Lanka MUST stand against CORRUPTION, NEPOTISM and FRAUD of public and private wealth. esp: PUBLIC.

    They MUST stand for RULE OF LAW and GOOD GOVERNANCE.

    They MUST stand for truly democratic UNITARY REPUBLIC OF SRI LANKA that has to GUTS to standup against anyone in the WORLD.

    LET’S ALSO recognise the INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM of ALL PEOPLE.

    The Eelamist, Islamists and other groups ALWAYS want differentiated rights NOT EQUAL RIGHTS.

    I wonder what sort of knowledge and understanding this racist, fundamentalist have about democracy and people power. Just 40 days before, people around Srilanka irrespective of race, language, religion marched jointly to defeat the trror king Mahinda Rajapakse despite threat, illegal voting, bribes, racist propaganda etc. I don’t know how many billions of public money that was steal during this regime used for this rally. It is true there are still large sunk of racist people there still believing the racist agenda. I am sure the rule of law of Srilanka (not international investigation)act as soon as possible to send Mahinda & Co including this racist behind the bars.

        I have no other alternative. No matter how much I dislike MR and his goons, I cant let this american stooge RW to run havoc here. His irresponsibility reminds me of his 2001-04 period as PM.

        There is a lot I did not know then but know now.

        It is good Maithree came and RW became PM for 3 months. Because we could see what could happen, while we have the chance to change it.

            AUDIO: Singing National Anthem in Tamil is a joke – Wimal
            December 13, 2010

            Minister of Housing and Construction, Wimal Weerawansa voiced his support towards the Cabinet decision to do away with the Tamil version of the National Anthem, branding this practice a joke.

            He said that in no other country is the National Anthem sung in multiple languages including India where the National Anthem is only sung in Hindi despite the hundreds of languages been spoken in the country.

            “Only in Sri Lanka is this being practiced and it’s a joke. This decision was simply a correction of an error made through the Constitution of 1978,” he added.

    Here was DJ reading out MR’s speech at the rally and if i may add with great vigour and shamelesly campeigning for MR’s return (can you imagine a so called political scientist behaving with such naked bias)as if he was a politician himself.Equating Nationalism to racism and conveniently ignoring the fact that 6.2Mn voters rejected MR and harping on the 5.8mn. This man simply does not understand basic maths, that 6.2mn is greater than 5.8mn.When in 2005 RW lost by 186000 votes to MR i never read of such nonsense,and quite rightly so…a defeat is a defeat irrespective of the margin…imagine if DJ’s theory is applied to all aspects (sports,elections etc) we would never have a loser. if DJ’s laws (5.8Mn being greater or atleast equal to 6.2mn)applied to the post election scenario of 2010, it would be seem only fair to imply that 4Mn citizens of the country were banished behind bars of welikada prison.I simply cannot comprehend the inabilty of DJ and MR’s fellow travellers like WW,Vasu,dinesh,UG to accept defeat.But not surprisinly they all have one thing in coomon….there poitical survival and relevance will evaporate without the presence of MR.

      puk,

      “This man simply does not understand basic maths,…”

      On contrary he does understand maths! As far as he is concerned, the minorities are not the true citizens of the nation! Hence, they do not count; please get your facts right!

    If all the allegations against former President is proven no rally or Dayan-Dinesh-Vasu-Wimal& Co might have to wait forever to get their dreams come through.

    “The younger stars, Wimal Weerawansa, a pure Jacobin orator and Udaya Gammanpila, seemingly softer and more humorous, if you ignore the glint in his eye, turned in superb performances.”

    What a complete bankrupt fool this guy is! He has no semblance shame in him; he has reduced himself to praise the like of Weerawansa and Gammapilla whom in the past he labelled as the Sinhala chauvinists!

    [Edited out] Pundit Dayan is a loser who has jointed the “Losers’ Forum”. Let us all be practical. Gathering people is not a major achievement, even this week Thondaman was still distributing the goodies that was given to him during the election to get votes. Similarly Rajapakses have enough money and hidden goodies to distribute and collect people for the rally. What is more important is -how many real votes did the Rajapakse Stooges who sat on the podium get during the last election, what is their voter base? How many complaints have been lodged against them and when they are investigated how many will have their voter rights or will be out of he prison to stand in the election. This Puss-Pundit Dayan is a joker, no one takes notice of him. He has written so many times that Rajapakse never listened to him and that Rajapakse sacked him. Still he is clinging on to Rajapakse as he knows he stands no chance in front of Ranil or Maithripala or Chandrika. Further with all his English, he is no match to Ranil. Shame on you Dayan, you are like a monkey jumping from branch to branch.

    It is not a surprise to see a article from DJ today (the very next day) this is a celebration of Victory for DJ. Now it’s all pretty clear, we don’t have to wonder whether this this person was crazy or insane, it’s clear now he was/is just boot liking.

    DJ Say’s I quote “Nugegoda was quite distinct in my experience, for a different reason. It was the most emotional, energetic and enthusiastic crowd I have seen at a public meeting in Sri Lanka” proves he never been to any of MS campaign rallies. Proof that he was among the most racist lot among our population.

    Just so no one will throw the racist card at him he continues I quote “and that emotion wasn’t against anyone” when you read between the lines you know he knows he was among the racist.

    We know you have no options but to continue in this manner. But people are more intelligent than some retards think. The mass will not fell into the same old pit Dayan. Soon you will be exposed more to that will be remembered along with Wimalasena, Gamanpila , Vasu , Denesh and the cat paws behind your game playing with peoples life’s in broad daylight. We removed Mahinda because he could not build the bonds between ethnic diversity of our nation to move towards a greater Sri Lanka. Now it’s crystal clear who are behind in this greedy game of Mahinda and company. And who dragged Mahinda to his own pit.

      I beg you pardon!!!!!!. We all could see very clearly the early signs of building a bond between two communities by your beloved Peelamist CM Vegie and his action of passing the order last week. You cannot play the same trick over and over again.

      By the way, what do you mean by “WE” in your comments? I presume Peelamists??

        Well I disagree the use of ” National Anthem , SL Forces, Apea Mawubima , Sinhala Jathya” like propaganda words towards uninformed masses to create that atmosphere by this so called educated people. When the common man get carried away neither Dayan or Mahinda Company suffer, and we know that from our history.
        And the way Dayan delivered the speech , Wow the rhythm and the occasional pauses are great. You can fool some for sometime but not all the time as they say. Your days are over. I’m not a peelamist and I am against building any kind of walls but breaking them and also I think you are Dayan commenting as “Sinhala Banda”. Game on looser.

          Just a clarification – Dr. Dayan does not want hide behind anybodies name you idiot. He has shown that in that massive human river in Nugegoda

          You are absolutely right – you are not breaking only walls, you are like ” a bull in a china shop breaking everything to dust”. A mirror image of Gonjan Gobbanayake, self-claimed glassy hero!!!!!.

          Who the heck are to tell public not to use our national anthem, SL Forces? That is our birth right. These prove that you are one more stupid Peelamist living in the La-La land.

          If you really think the game is on, bring the targets, our forces are ready.

          We bet you – the short carnival of yours and Looser Nickamasinghe, will soon be over by next April. Enjoy dancing the pot til the water in cool.

            “Dr. Dayan does not want hide behind anybodies name you idiot.”

            He doesn’t have to.

            He is hiding behind smart ass patriotism while trying to hide bigots behind him.

            “If you really think the game is on, bring the targets, our forces are ready.”

            If there is real target, of course your forces are ready and hiding behind their women folks.

              Kallathnoi invaders like you do not have a land to be feeling patriotism. LTTE looser like you do not even understand the bloody meaning of that word.

              Hiding behind the pombule’s saree is the way of yours, bloody idiot. It was well exhibited in the practice with all Pombules’ human shield at in Nandikhadal lagoon by your sun goad mass killer podian Preba, just before his ultimate mud bath that lead the way in attaining the Hell. Do not even open your mouth on that subject further as you have nothing to defend that coward behaviour.

              So please mind your own [Edited out]

    Dayan, I applaud you and the ‘masses’, and their democratic right to support anyone they choose, however:

    “It is Sinhala nationalist without being anti-Tamil or anti-Muslim in any manner”

    If this were true, then the Sinhala Nationalist will have to be more careful than a blindfolded tightrope walker crossing the Niagra falls.

    We have had sixty-seven years of Sinhala Nationalism that HAS been anti-Tamil and anti-Muslim, and I welcome an attempt to tread carefully.

    I hope the future Prime Minister MR will make it clear how he intends to solve the national question to the satisfaction of all factions – TNA, JHU, BBS, UNP, SLFP, NDF, USA, UK, UN etc.

    Most of all we need a leader who will unite the hearts and minds of the North and South.

      I beg to differ.

      We do not need a leader who will unite the hearts and minds of the North and South as long as they stop dividing them all is well.

      We need wise people guiding the country and am sad to say I am still looking for them.

    It’s a pity to observe there are so much cattle in Sri lanka! They never remember the past, even the recent past! Still yearning for a goon who ruled this land in a dictatorial manner and all that abuse of power, nepotism, lawlessness, wastage, family bandism, murder etc. etc he committed. The cattle who flocked to Nugegoda wants this guy to return to power to continue his maniac ways. What a primitive mentality? No wonder why this country continues to be in a mess despite 67 years of independence. This country will be in a mess as long as this herds of cattle and the herdsmen who control them and who were on the podium yesterday, remains in SL politics.
    The claim about the interests of the 5.8 million cattle who voted for the goon makes no sense since interests of so many persons who voted for loosing candidates who lost previous general elections and presidential elections for the past 67 years were not addressed and remained voiceless all these years!

    So Dayan, you call Weerawansa a “Jacobin orator”?

    You are right. He is a Jacobin in the true sense of the word.

    Google says:

    “Jac·o·bin
    ˈjakəbən/
    noun
    noun: Jacobin; plural noun: Jacobins; noun: jacobin; plural noun: jacobins

    1.
    historical
    a member of a democratic club established in Paris in 1789. The Jacobins were the most radical and ruthless of the political groups formed in the wake of the French Revolution, and in association with Robespierre they instituted the Terror of 1793–4.
    an extreme political radical.
    2.
    historical
    a Dominican friar.”

    Of the two meanings, I know which one you attribute to Weerawansa – because you were hiding from his mob in the late 80s.

    Nugegoda rally was a great success. The pundits will not like it but this is the aspiration of common people. Sri Lanka is crying for a great leader. Rail and My3 are puppets of the west who will dance to their tune. We do not want that kind of traitors. All Sri Lankans please stand up to safeguard our dignity! We are not going to bow down to western powers and conspiracies.

      Ravana on JAR Syndrome,

      toma toma toma ven aqui ven aqui!(drink, drink, drink, come here, come here)

      Knowledge without imagination takes one nowhere.

      Ha means ‘Supreme Spirit.’
      Nu means ‘that which permeates’
      Man means ‘manifested’

      Hanuman Ki Jai!!

      ʘʘ The culture includes ….Sunday sil Monday kill…….. Kill the Vedda..Rob the Buddha… and Blame the Sudda.. It is as simple as that……

      Ravana, Now what are you going to do about it?

      `Mahawamse`: Do you still want to retain Sinhala/Buddhist origin myth based on bestiality, parricide and incestuous relation?

        Musharraf did it and many did it before.
        Arafat did it too but the mossad got him the same way they plucked Israel.
        As planned by CIA the Oil goes to Ethiopia from Sudan and the ethopians have 50k armed men guarding the Oil flow- Thats called freedom and partition.
