Platform For Freedom

Platform for Freedom is aimed at mobilising people of all nationalities to restore democratic freedoms and basic human rights in the island where different political opinions and cultural believes are equally respected. The Platform encompasses a broad spectrum of individuals and political parties who believe that Sri Lanka’s political system has been drastically eroded by the policies and actions of the authoritarian regime of President Mahinda Rajapaksa that came to power in 2006 and immediate reversal of the prevailing trend is an absolute necessity at this point of history. Forming of Platform of Freedom was a spontaneous reaction of some civil society activists, journalists and parliamentarians to the brutal killing of journalist Lasantha Wickramatunge in January 2009. Ever since it has been growing rapidly bringing people of diverse political opinions together to win back democratic freedoms and racial harmony which is the foundation for any free society.
