“May Day” Celebration

To mark the “May Day” Human Rights unit of Setik organized a Seminar on Labour Rights in the district of Nuwaraeliya of Central region on 3rd May 2008. More than 200 plantation sector people took part in this programme. We selected plantation sector people for this programme because they are the marginalized group in the society. We made them aware about their rights and we opened a discussion to talk about their problems as well as to talk about the conflict issues. Finally after the programme we were able to direct them to the relevant authorities to solve their problems. The people who participated at the programme were very much impressed and they appreciate it.
