Jaffna-wide schools boycott begins Monday

[TamilNet, Monday, 29 January 2007, 16:15 GMT]
The boycott organized by the Vadamaradchy Tamil Students union spread to schools across Jaffna peninsula beginning Monday as two students abducted in Vadamaradchy area earlier, remained captive. Most students in Jaffna district responded to the call by the Students Union to boycott school activities until the abducted students are released.

The students union in their communiqué had called upon all school students in the peninsula to boycott classes, demanding the release of the abducted students as well as for the SLA troops to stop exerting military violence on the students.

Most schools in the peninsula did not function Monday as there were no students present while classes were held in some schools with only a few students attending.

The student leaders however vowed that in the next few a days, there will be a full scale boycott of classes in all schools in the peninsula.

SLA soldiers and collaborating paramilitaries in the Peninsula have abducted a number of undergraduates and high school students in the last several months. The recent escalation in number of abductions of civilians in Jaffna has once again created fear among the residents.
