THE MCC BILL WILL HAVE FAR REACHING IMPACT ON SRI LANKA'S ECONOMY AND ESPECIALLY THE PEASANTRY IN THE TARGET AREA AS THEY WILL BE COMPELLED TO SELL THEIR LAND BY MARKET FORCES AND REDUCE THEM TO INDENTURED LABOR

His Excellency , the President M.Sirsena
Sri Lanka


DO NOT ENDORSE THE MILLENNIUM CHALLENGE CORPORATION BILL

We are addressing  you in connection with the highly irregular and and 'unethical' manner in which the Prime Minister and the ministers have approved the above bill when the country is facing an election to choose the President to take over the affairs of the country.


According to section 42 of the Constitution the President is the head of the Cabinet and hence we believe that you have the power to reject approval of the above bill which is being rushed before the pending Presidential election. Besides, for all intentions and purposes the present Government is functioning in the mode of Caretaker Government and we firmly believe that such a legislative assembly cannot take action on a bill such as MCC which will have far reaching impact on the economy as well as the  social , defense and security related areas of the country's governance.


The basic question is should the country be 'sold' for $480 million especially affecting the administration and control over 1/3 of the country's land area including the millions of members of the peasantry who will be bought over by the multi-national companies like what happened in the Latin America countries reducing the peasantry to indentured labor. Further, the area demarcated for MCC control includes the priceless Cultural Triangle which encompasses  the ancient institutions of Sri Lanka's civilization,

We also request the supporters to promote and to convert the coming election to a referendum on the MCC Bill and REJECT  the proponents and the objectives of the MCC
