Peoples agitation campaign planned in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Monday, 18 July 2005, 14:14 GMT]
About five hundred representatives of civil groups in the Jaffna district Monday decided to hold one-day peoples' agitation campaign mustering several thousand people to seek the support of the international community to recognize the self-determination rights of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka, civil sources in Jaffna said.

Mr.Cyril Solomon, Chairman of the Jaffna District Civil Groups Forum presided over the meeting held at the Kailasapathy Auditorium in the Jaffna University.

The campaign will be held during the first week of August, organizers said. At the conclusion of the campaign a general proclamation will be made revealing the position of the Tamil community on the Tamil national question, they added.

The discussion was held amid tense situation now prevailing in the northeast province following attacks against the LTTE political cadres in the government controlled areas in the east. The Supreme Court ruling suspending key clauses of the P-TOMS agreement which was signed by the government and the LTTE recently to undertake urgent rehabilitation and reconstruction works in the tsunami hit coastal areas of the province, has further worsened the situation, according to the organizers.

The discussion commenced around 11.30 a.m. and continued for about two hours, sources said.

It was also decided to expand the peoples agitation campaign other districts of the northeast province, sources said.
