Muttur residents hold demonstration against SLA embargo

[TamilNet, Thursday, 17 November 2005, 11:52 GMT]
Hundreds of Tamil residents of LTTE held Muttur east and Eachchilampathu division in Trincomalee district Thursday held demonstrations against the embargo imposed by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) on transporting essential food items, fuel and building materials through Kaddaiparichchan and Mahindapura army camps, sources in the east said.

The demonstrations began at about nine in the morning and concluded in the afternoon.

Fuel embargo has affected operation of agricultural machinery and embargo on building materials has curtailed reconstruction and rehabilitation work in tsunami affected areas, residents said.

Demonstrators carrying placards and shouting slogans marched to the border of the Kaddaiparichchan army camp from Navalady junction in Muttur east and from Eachchilampathu to the border of the Mahindapura army camp, sources said.
