Activities including a lecture at the National theatre held on Thursday, May 31 was to herald this year’s celebration which is under the theme, “Re-organising towards the Core Values”.

The release added, “Monday’s durbar is open to all sympathisers of the June 4 Uprising, the 31st December Revolution and members of the public.”
