Students gathered in the center of Chavakachcheri town shouting slogans against the Sinhala chauvinism.

Later they went in a procession along the Jaffna-Kandy highway and reached Chavakachcheri Hindu College in Sangathanai area where they burnt a pot symbolising the Sinhala chauvinism.

The traffic through A9 highway was blocked for about half an hour.

Students continued their process from Chavakachcheri Hindu College to Sangathanai Kandasamy Kovil area where they dispersed.

The Thenmaradchchi Students' Union at the conclusion issued a statement that the demonstration was organized to show the international community that the Sinhala chauvinist elements in the South are the stumbling block in reaching a just and fair political solution to the Tamil national question.
