NEFIS expresses its solidarity with the struggling people of Sri Lanka and their demands that the current acting president Ranil Wickremesinghe should be immediately ousted, and people’s collective power which has emerged during the present struggle should be institutionalised in the form of People’s Assemblies, it mentioned.

The protest which started in Sri Lanka against the current political and economic regime has completely exposed the phenomenon which can be observed worldwide, it further stated.

It should be noted that economic precarity and political chicanery is a phenomenon prevalent across the world, and people’s movements have arisen against the dominant economic classes and the ruling elites, NEFIS stated.

Sri Lankan struggle is an important link in the chain of such struggles around the globe, it mentioned.  It symbolizes people’s power to dismantle the dominant anti-people political and economic structures, and stands as an inspiration for the people’s movements worldwide for a society based on equality and social justice, it added.
