[TamilNet, Monday, 27 February 2006, 12:10 GMT]
Businesses, banks, Government establishments and common markets in Kalmunai, Santamarutu and Kalmunaikudi were closed Monday in support of the tsunami families protesting for the sixth day in front of Kalmunai District Secretariat (Muslim Division). The protesters began their campaign Wednesday morning demanding that they should be provided with permanent houses and other related relief and assistance. The families demand the Amparai Government Agent meet with them and provide assurances to attend to their difficulties, sources in Kalmunai said.

The families want permanent houses built and to end their misery living as refugee families.

The families cook their meals without going to their temporary huts and other makeshift structures which have been provided to them after the tsunami disaster in December, 2004, sources said.
