2021 May Day in Sri Lanka marks the International Workers’ Day, also known as Labour Day in most countries and often referred to as May Day, is a celebration of labourers and the working classes that is promoted by the international labour movement.
Bitter truth in Sri Lanka for many decades is there are no benefits derived from May Day activities to these working people, as their pro-working class unions are working with political parties for its survival. As the result unions are not able to do justice to its members!
This year, the May Day activities in Sri Lanka are restricted by the health authorities imposed guidelines in view of the coronavirus pandemic.
In this scenario, as the May Day is for the working people, the ruled population in Sri Lanka need to work with concerned authorities to make the rulers aware of the plight of the working people, living under the prevailing Coronavirus pandemic. That will enable the government of the day to take appropriate actions to ensure social justice prevails on the life of these most disadvantaged working people of Sri Lanka!
