Vickramabahu „Bahu“ Karunaratne in Gefahr

“My life is in danger”

“My life is in danger” says Dr.Bahu

Leader of the New Left Front Dr. Wickremabahu Karunaratne said that the government is trying to silence him in order to stop criticism against the government.

Dr. Karunaratne told The Sunday Leader online that President Mahinda Rajapaksa is trying to take revenge from him for an alleged involvement in a protest campaign in UK and added that it was the President that has allowed goons to protest against him at the Bandaranayake International Airport (BIA) upon his arrival to the country yesterday afternoon.

“Two goons shouted at me for having hand with the LTTE to obstruct the President’s planned address at the Oxford Union. I do not have any hand into it. Why do they blame me? I asked them to go and ask the President as to what went wrong with his UK tour without pointing fingers towards anyone else,” he said.

According to Dr. Karunaratne, it appears to him that President Rajapaksa is not governing the country within the legal frame but out side the law through thuggery and added that his life is in danger.

“My life is now in danger. This is not the time for them to attack me but certainly they will try to silence me very soon,” he said.

Tätlicher Angriff auf Vickramabahu (Bahu) Karunaratne

Bahu and journalists attacked in Colombo by pro government officials

The General Secretary of the Nava Sama Samaja Party has been attacked at the airport by Aviation authority officials while the police were looking on.

MTV Katunayaka correspondant Prema Lal and Lanka enews journalist Shantha Wijesuriya who went to cover Dr. Vickramabahu Karunaratna’s arrival have also been assaulted.

A group of officials who were in uniform and on duty mobbed Dr. Vickramabahu Karunaratne when he stepped out of the airport to be welcomed by NSSP officials, party members, trade union leaders, lawyers and human rights activists.Dozens of aviation officials who surrounded him called him a ’traitor who wants to divide the country united by Mr. Mahinda,’ and attacked. several well wishers including females who came to his rescue were injured.

The port and aviation authority comes under President Rajapaksa. Before that the president’s Brother Chamal Rajapaksa was the minister in charge. It is a well known that government ministers employ their political supporters for positions in their ministry.

Dr. Vickramabahu Karunaratna was returning to Sri Lanka after a visit to the UK on a personal invitation. He was in the UK to attend the 88th birthday celebrations of his dean at Cambridge Professor Reg Goodwin. He was invited and his passage was paid for by the son of Prof. Goodwin, Mark.

While in London Bahu was invited to address several public meetings the Tamil remembrence day 2010 held at the Excel auditorium attended by tens of thousands in addition to a meeting at the house of commons. The following week President Rajapaksa who arrived in the UK had to abandon a scheduled talk at the Oxford Union due to protests by Tamils who accused him of war crimes.

The government of Sri Lanka has accused Dr. Karunaratne and opposition parliamentarian Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena of organising the protests in London in collusion with Tamil Tiger supporters.

Vickramabahu „Bahu“ Karunarathne: Zum Regime in Sri Lanka und seinen „progressiven Freunden“

Posted by entdinglichung - 21. September 2009

Quelle: ESSF, der Artikel von Bahu zum Regime in Sri Lanka macht ansonsten auch deutlich, warum die althergebrachten Kategorien zur Bewertung „progressiver“ oder „populistischer“ Regime im Trikont aus der Zeit des kalten Krieges schon damals kaum und heute überhaupt nicht mehr greifen … vielleicht entdecken auch Teile der europäischen Pseudo-Antiimps bald den „fortschrittlichen, anti-imperialistischen und nationalistischen Charakter“ ihres neuen Verbündeten Sri Lanka und warum die LTTE schon immer ein Werkzeug des altbösen Feindes war …

Mahinda regime is neither proletarian nor socialist

Vickramabahu „Bahu“ Karunarathne

Some people believe that the Mahinda regime, is an anti American, anti West, nationalist regime. One cannot blame them too much when, the old Left including Vasudeva is busy white washing this regime. The old Left too, insist that the Mahinda regime is progressive and better than the UNP regime. Of course, they find it difficult to explain the political and social policies of the regime. In our presence, in husky voice, with rosy cheeks they claim that they are there for tactical reasons. They deny that they have betrayed any Marxist principles. On the other hand, their presence is a powerful instrument available for the regime. Government propagandists have made use of this fact to win the hearts of many left oriented regimes in the third world. Recently we saw that even Hugo Chaves has fallen into the propaganda pit of the Mahinda regime. We were shown a picture of Colonel Gaddafi keeping his hand on the shoulder of president Mahinda. But Gaddafi has changed a lot from the time when he was seen as an arch enemy of the American imperialism. Today, the world has changed so much that we are unable to say where the other hand of Gaddafi was. In fact, he could have been whispering to Mahinda not to shout too much against the West, while squeezing the belly of Mahinda with the other hand.

Indirectly helped

This is a global development. In the 50s and the 60s in the so- called third world, we witnessed the rise of nationalist populist leaders with strong anti American rhetoric. They were all dependent on soviet Russia and the Red China regime. However, in spite of their claims for socialism, all of them were products of the economic boom in the western world. at that stage, Western powers were interested in certain democratization in the developing world in order to facilitate capital investment. Hence, they indirectly helped populist leaders in their radical steps, as long as these did not push towards a special alliance with the Eastern powers. In fact, only one of these radical movements really, went out of control; that is Cuba. All the other populist leaders made radical changes to remove maligned sections of the neo-colonial establishments. The McNamara policy of the World Bank showed the real nature of the global capitalist policy.

By now the world has changed. The populist movements started by leaders such as Nehru, Sukarno, Bhutto, Nasser, Ben Bela, Peron and Bandaranaike have ceased to be anti American or anti capitalist. In India, the modern Gandhis are hand in glove with the Western powers. In fact, they work as the regional leaders of global capitalism. Man Mohan Singh is not an agent of Obama but really a guru. Similar changes have taken place everywhere.

Capitalist agenda

The collapse of the Stalinist states, only accelerated the degeneration of third world national populism. However, unfortunately the vocabulary and the rhetoric still survive, creating illusions in the minds of the people. In Lanka, the rise of Mahinda to power is some times depicted as a second coming of the MEP of maha Bandaranaike.

The picture is made easy by the participation of all left parties, except of course the Nava Sama Samaja party, in the coalition. But, the Mahinda regime today, is completely dependent on American and Indian handouts. It is indebted to these powers in all aspects. Hence, it is an anti proletarian, Sinhala chauvinist regime following the global capitalist agenda. To claim this as an anti American leadership is as bad as claiming that the Obama leadership as been anti American.

In fact in the US there are people who seriously believe that Obama is a secret communist agent sent to destroy the free society led by the rich whites. They accuse him of taking over control of banking and industry. Also, they condemn his attempt to revise the healthcare policy. Both are according to them, neo communist policies! In a world of such lunacy it is not surprising to see intelligent people defining the Mahinda regime as a progressive nationalist regime.

Comrade Upali’s Unfinished Task

We mourn the sudden and untimely death of Comrade Upali in the early hours of 21st August 2009, and pay our tribute to his active political life as a champion of the oppressed and the poor of the world. Had he recovered from his sudden illness he would have celebrated his 70th Birthday on 17th September. At this sorrowful occasion we join his wife Sylvia, son Alex and daughters Samantha and Jasmine in sharing their grief over the loss of a dear husband and a father for we have lost a dear friend and a comrade.

Comrade Upali, throughout his active political life, spanning over 50 years, stood at the forefront of struggles of the oppressed people all over the world. He was a socialist intellectual and an internationalist who spearheaded anti-neo-colonialist, anti-capitalist and anti-racist campaigns both in Britain and in Sri Lanka. He fought tirelessly and passionately against the oppression of workers, women and minority nationalities. In Britain he played a key role in the anti-Vietnam War Movement as its secretary. He vehemently opposed the war in Sri Lanka, denounced human rights violations, political assassinations and other atrocities committed by successive regimes and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). However, from 1979 onwards, in the context of anti-Tamil rhetoric and riots and the banning of the Tamil United Liberation Front’s demand for a separate State in the North-East of Sri Lanka, comrade Upali as a founder-member of the Movement for Inter-racial Justice and Equality (MIRJE) played a leading role in formulating and articulating the principle of Tamil people’s right to self-determination. In 1983, during the ‘Black July’ pogrom against the Tamil people in the south comrade Upali physically intervened to protect individual Tamils from attacks by Sinhalese thugs.

Comrade Upali firmly believed in the ability of the oppressed people to change the socio-economic and political conditions of their oppression and make a better world. He never used his intellectual abilities for his personal gain. Motivated by socialist ideals comrade Upali committed all his strengths and abilities for organising, educating and empowering of the oppressed people. He did not merely stand by them, he stood with them and fought with them and sought ways and means of resolving their issues.

It was his unwavering commitment to the cause of the oppressed that led him to join the Lanka Sama Samaja Party’s (LSSP) Youth League. But in the 1960s when the majority leadership of the LSSP joined a coalition government with the Communist Party and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) comrade Upali broke away with the minority who opposed the coalition with a capitalist party. In the aftermath of the split within the LSSP he emigrated to Britain and graduated in Economics from the London School of Economics and joined the International Marxist Group (IMG), the British Section of the 4th International. Comrade Upali matured as a militant socialist in the thick of anti-neo-colonialist, anti-war and anti-racist struggles and campaigns in Britain. When the Sri Lankan coalition government of the LSSP, CP and the SLFP crushed the youth rebellion led by the Janata Vimukti Peramuna (JVP) in 1971, and imprisoned a large number of young rebels including their leadership comrade Upali joining with activists of the Ginipupura group campaigned for their release.

Vickramabahu Karunarathne (Bahu) zur aktuellen Situation in Lanka:

Posted by entdinglichung - 19. Mai 2009

Der Krieg in Lanka bewegt leider sowohl deutsche Linke wie Weltöffentlichkeit in geringerem Massen als andere vergleichbare Konflikte, daher hier ein einige Tage altes Statement von Vickramabahu „Bahu“ Karunarathne von der Nava Sama Samaaja Party (NSSP), gefunden auf Links – International Journal of Socialist Renewal:

There is an international commotion about the bloodbath and the human disaster in Lanka. It can lead eventually to an international intervention that could enslave everybody. We called this press conference to make everybody aware of the developing situation.

Government leaders claim that they have confined the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) activity to a very small area near Mulative. It is said that the LTTE leadership and the last battalions are within the 15,000 people caught in the Area. The LTTE challenges these figures and say that around 120,000 are cornered in the limited area. The UN says it is more than 50,000. Whatever it may be, the only access to food and other necessities for these people is the Red Cross shipments that are supposed to arrive twice a week to this enclosure with the government’s permission. This shipment includes 25 tonnes of food and medicine, and the boat takes back is about 500 passengers. There are more than 2000 wounded and sick in the area waiting to go out but the government has not made any extra arrangements for that. While these people are confined to this hellhole the government is continuing its attacks. Shells and multibarrel rockets are used day and night. In the last few days over 2000 were killed and many more are injured.

The Sri Lankan government claims that the LTTE is responsible for this misery and demands that the Tigers should unconditionally surrender. But at the same time the government says that the Tigers are criminals already convicted by Lankan and Indian courts. Therefore they will be punished accordingly. In that event there is no room for any discussion at all. the Tigers are assumed to be just criminals and not even an indirect product of Tamil national problem. At the same time they have accepted that nearly 3000 LTTE cadres are in their custody. But nobody knows where they are. It is suspected that they are kept at some desolate place in Vanni. Their fate is totally unknown. In the recent past many who were in state custody were killed in „confrontations“ with the prisoners, when they were taken out of the place of imprisonment! Among them, some were LTTE suspects. Wijeweera, a Sinhala rebel was burned alive while he was in army custody. In that background, if the LTTE leaders surrender their fate will be a shameful humiliating death. It will be a severe discredit to the struggle and the Tamil people. In that reality we ask who has the right to demand the LTTE surrender.

We, the Left do not agree with the ferocious methods and the bourgeois politics of the Tigers. But they are Tamil liberation fighters and they have the right to be treated as such. Bogus demands of the government have no meaning. Government is demanding that the Tamil people be allowed to leave Tiger areas so that Tiger militants are left behind to be slaughtered by the army. Some lunatics blame the Tigers for not agreeing to this demand! If these ladies and gentlemen are so committed to the innocent lives they should demand the government to agree to a genuine ceasefire.

1.) Labour Website of the Year 2008: die Homepage der unabhängigen klassenkämpferischen Gewerkschaft United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America (UE) in den USA:

2.) Die FAU-IAA erinnert an eine Gedenkveranstaltung vor einigen Tagen in Paris für die SpanierInnen, die im Kampf um die Befreiung Frankreichs vom deutschen Faschismus gefallen sind oder in deutschen Konzentrationslagern wie Mauthausen ermordet wurden; eine Einheit von ExilantInnen (darunter vielen AnarchistInnen) aus Spanien hatte im August 1944 als erste alliierte Abteilung Paris erreicht und eine wichtige Rolle bei der Befreiung der Stadt gespielt:

„Mauthausen nimmt unter all den Lagern der Vernichtungsmaschine der Nazis eine ganz besondere Rolle ein. Es sticht nicht in erster Linie durch den industriell betriebenen millionenfachen Massenmord an der jüdischen Bevölkerung Europas hervor wie Auschwitz oder Sobibor. Mauthausen mit all seinem Schrecken war stattdessen ein Schmelztiegel all dessen, wogegen sich der Vernichtungswille der Nazi-Barbarei richtete. In Mauthausen schleppten sich deutsche Antifaschisten die Treppe zum Steinbruch hinauf, zusammen mit jüdischen Menschen, russischen Kriegsgefangenen, jugoslawischen Partisanen. Mehr als 200.000 Menschen aus 30 Ländern gingen durch dieses Inferno aus Mord und Vernichtung.

Unter all den Menschen, die von den Nazis in Mauthausen ermordet wurden, wollen wir uns heute einer Gruppe ganz besonders erinnern. Nicht um sie gegenüber ihren Leidensgenossen hervorzuheben, sondern weil heute ein Tag ist, der in besonderer Weise ihrem Andenken gewidmet ist. Ich will von den mehr als 7.500 Spaniern sprechen, die ab 1940 nach Mauthausen verschleppt wurden und von denen mindestens 4.200 in den Steinbrüchen der infamen „Vernichtung durch Arbeit“ anheim fielen.“

3.) Offenbar erschien 1998 ein Aufsatz mit dem Titel „Freiheit und Wahrheit“ des heutigen Papstes Benedikt Ratzinger XVI. in dem vom österreichischen faschistoiden Magazin Aula heraugegebenen Sammelband „1848 – Erbe und Auftrag“ wobei momentan nicht klar ist, ob der damalige Grossinquisitor Chef der Glaubenskongregation von dem Nachdruck überhaupt wusste (auch Unfehlbarkeit hat ihre Grenzen) wusste oder ob hier eine Urheberrechtsverletzung vorliegt. Jedenfalls haben es Ratzinger bzw. sein Verlag in den letzten elf Jahren es nicht für notwendig angesehen, der Sache nachzugehen … stellt sich die Frage, ob ein derartiger Text sich in den genannten Sammelband nicht vielleicht problemlos einfügt.

„Das DÖW kommentierte den Artikel so: “Der rechtsextreme Aula-Verlag schmückt sich mit der Autorenschaft des Präfekten der Glaubenskongregation im Vatikan, Kardinal Joseph Ratzinger.” Als Herausgeber der Denkschrift fungierte Aula-”Schriftleiter” Otto Scrinzi, ehemaliger SA-Sturmführer, Ex-NSDAP-Mitglied und dann – FPÖ-Nationalratsabgeordneter. Mitherausgeber der Schrift ist der deutsche Rechtsextremist Jürgen Schwarz. Für den Grünen Abgeordneten Karl Öllinger, der die Schrift entdeckte, muss die Stellung von Benedikt XVI. in der Debatte um die rechte Pius-Bruderschaft jetzt völlig neu bewertet werden.“

4.) Ein Interview mit Jayampathy Wickramaratne, Politbüromitglied der Lanka Sama Samaja Party (LSSP), … ein reformistischer Linker, der es allen und daher niemandem recht machen will und einen „sauberen Krieg“ statt des derzeitigen schmutzigen Krieges möchte:

„As far as the war is concerned, every government has the right to take back territory which it has lost to either a foreign power or to a separatist organization. So, I have no problems with regaining lost territory. But it must be done in such a way so that it is not perceived as a war against the Tamil community. Every effort should be made to distinguish between the Tamil community and the LTTE. And that can only be done if this military effort is supplemented on the political front. That is why if there is progress with the APRC, that will be reason for Tamils to have hope. While I have no problems with the military action against the LTTE per se, there has to be parallel efforts towards a political solution. So, what is a political solution? It is a constitutional settlement that takes into consideration the aspirations of the Tamil community, but also the other minorities and the Sinhala community. That can only be done through devolution to the provinces, safeguards for the minorities within those provinces, for example for Muslims and Sinhalese in the East. Power sharing at the centre, which will bring the Provinces into the centre, will be an effective inter-locking mechanism for the centre and the regions. And a strong fundamental rights charter, which can be used to safeguard the rights of all communities and of course a check on the Centre. Unfortunately, there are elements in the South who refuse to see the importance of such a political solution. There is now militarization of society and intolerance of dissent. Any criticism of the government is viewed as criticism of the war. That should not be so.“

5.) Die Uni Hamburg interessiert sich, so All Change Please, für private Finanzdaten von Studierenden:

„Die Uni fordert derzeit Studierende auf, für Entscheidungen über Stundungen nach Landeshaushaltsordnung ungeschwärzte Kopien von Kontoauszüge einzureichen. Wir finden, dass es die Uni nichts angeht, in welchen Vereinen und Organisationen ihr etwa Mitgliedsbeiträge zahlt oder wo ihr euer Geld abhebt. Ob die Uni das überhaupt darf, wird derzeit vom Hamburgischen Datenschutzbeauftragten geprüft, Arbeitsagenturen – das könnte durchaus vergleichbar sein – dürfen das jedenfalls nicht. Wir fordern euch auf, der Uni bis auf weiteres erst einmal nur Kontoauszüge zu geben, in denen die Informationen zu den kleineren Buchungen geschwärzt sind.“

Vickramabahu Karunarathne „Bahu“ zum Unabhängigkeitstag von Sri Lanka

Posted by entdinglichung - 11. Februar 2009

This is a time for weeping – Bahu on 4th Feb 2009

I am thankful to Tissa and other organizers for making this event a reality. As a present day leader of the Sama Samajist movement which made a special contribution to the independence struggle, I have neither shame nor fear to step into this stage to speak of freedom.

At this time there is a celebration in Colombo, a shameful event where Lion flag is hoisted to cover up genocidal killings, abductions, corruptions, fraud and ransom taking. Ruling group led by Mahinda is using the Lion flag, the pride of Sinhala for 3000 years, as loin cloth to cover up their nakedness. Lion flag has become a cover to wrap the dead bodies of foul killings and to hide sinful frauds.

This is a time for weeping. From Point Pedro to Devundara, the island is soaked in blood and tears. Pardon me Hakim and Tamil leaders, for talking only of Sinhala youth that are killed in a distant unknown land, a deserted land.

Buried without much ceremony in other peoples land. Thousands died while tens of thousand are suffering in crowded hospitals. Colombo ceremony is to cover up all these.

We are told that by killing and destroying, bombing and blasting, Tamil struggle is brought to an end. At the same time we know that those who challenged and criticized this operation are classified as traitors and punished. Such Media men are killed or wounded and others are driven out of the island. Some Media houses are burned and crushed. We do not see an end to the problem, but we see pushing it underground while harvesting it in Tamil Nadu and in all cosmopolitan cities of the world.

At this moment there is a hartal in Tamil Nadu and massive demonstrations are taking place in all big cites of the world. Effigies of President Mahinda are carried and burned shouting slogans against killings, corruptions and plunder.

All Lankan embassies are given special protection while ambassadors live in fear. These protest acts are carried out with the support of left and democratic forces in respective countries. War has created more hatred and in coming generations , we could harvest the produce in several folds.

Bandaranayke signed a pact with the Tamil leader Chelvanayagum and wanted to solve the problem by devolution of power. Then Dudley tried to go further and after a similar pact took Tamil leaders into the Cabinet, while planning devolution.

President Jayewardene called an all party conference and tried to devolve power by the system of provincial councils. In this endeavor he was supported by Colvin, Bernard, Vijaya and other left leaders. I myself was among them.

At least a nominal provincial council for the Tamil homeland was established and for the first time in history after Sankili, Tamils had a Tamil ruler for the Tamil land. Finally, Prime Minister Wickramasinghe arrived at a ceasefire agreement with the LTTE leader Piribhaharan and wanted to go for a serious political solution.

All these leaders from Bandaranayke up to Wickramasinghe and the left leaders, who supported them, were with education from Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and MIT etc; with massive libraries for reference, were supposed to be guided by the principles of kindness and mercy.

Were they all fools and frightened imbeciles? Are they all traitors who wanted to deal with the foreign masters behind Tamil terrorism? On the other hand, is the ‚fearless leader‘ who smashed and killed, silenced critiques and poisoned Sinhala people with chauvinism and hate, the hero?

Every time since the time of Bandaranayke, when ever an attempt was made to arrive at a solution on the basis of power sharing among all communities, terror of Sinhala chauvinism was unleashed and barbarism ruled the streets.

Recently when President Jayewardene devolved power under 13th amendment for the NE province, Sinhala chauvinist terror was unleashed on every body associated with devolution of power. Killers did not come from Mars or Moon. Chauvinist gangs of Champika, gangs of Mahinda and gangs of Weerawansa under the name of patriotism attacked and killed.

They killed 23 of my party. I got a bullet passing through my body leaving a hole of 3 inches at back I survived only by shear luck after suffering in hospital for months.

Nearly 1000 of other leftist became victims while nearly 8000 UNP members and supporters were killed. Most of them unarmed ordinary people loyal to old UNP leaders. In addition these „patriots“ wounded tens of thousand and burned hundreds of houses.

When Prime Minister Wickramasinghe a signed a pact with the LTTE, again Sinhala chauvinist did every thing to sabotage the attempt for a solution.

We of the left appreciate the attempt to bring a settlement to this human issue of language and nationalities. But we differed on other issues with these rulers.

I have fought on such issues affecting workers and peasants and languished in prisons of Bandaranayke, Jayewardene and Wickramasinghe. Nevertheless I have come here today as I respect the commitment of the UNP leader Wickramasinghe to communal harmony and democracy. Resolving national and communal problems needs mercy and kindness.

All religions, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islamism, and Christianity, advocate kindness and compassion for human existence and to dispel barbarism.

When Marx spoke of opium of the masses he did not mean basic ethics of human existence. But the war mongering Sinhala chauvinist campaign is definitely opium to the masses. Mahinda use this opium to drug the masses to forget hunger and misery and to dance naked waving Lion flags. Thus he has taken the country towards barbarism.

For this country this it is the hour of Saturn, the moment of Mahasona the barbarian. At this hour vultures are roaming. We have come together to stand up and fight for freedom again.

Einige Lesehinweise zum Krieg in Lanka

Posted by entdinglichung - 3. Februar 2009

Der derzeit in Sri Lanka/Tamil Eelam ablaufende Wahnsinn scheint leider vielen Linken in der BRD und im Rest der Welt ziemlich am Arsch vorbeizugehen (auch scheint vergessen zu sein, dass seit Mitte der 1980er Zehntausende TamilInnen in die BRD geflüchtet sind, welche hier häufig nur über einen prekären Aufenthaltsstatus verfügen), daher hier einige Hinweise:

* Ständig aktualisierte Nachrichten in englischer und deutscher Sprache findet mensch auf dem Blog your views on the situation in Sri Lanka, verwiesen sei hier auf den dort dokumentierten Aufruf Civil Society Organisations deeply concerned by Situation in the Vanni:

„All have raised concerns regarding the critical situation confronting the over 300,000 displaced persons presently trapped within the Vanni. The ICRC in a press release on January 27 quoted Jacques de Maio, ICRC head of operations for South Asia in Geneva “People are being caught in the crossfire, hospitals and ambulances have been hit by shelling and several aid workers have been injured while evacuating the wounded. “
The few thousand civilians who have managed to flee the Vanni are detained in camps in Vavuniya, Mannar and Jaffna under the guard of the security forces, reportedly for screening to ensure that LTTE cadre do not infiltrate the south of the country. There are restrictions on the freedom of movement of those within these camps, and very limited access to extended family members and humanitarian workers, thus seriously compromising the ‘civilian’ aspect of these camps.“
