Students mark 'Black July 83'

[TamilNet, Friday, 23 July 1999, 13:12 GMT]
Students of the Eastern University boycotted the lectured and carried black flags to mark 'Black July-83'. A press release from the students said the picketing was arranged to mark the July 83 communal riots and the massacre of Tamil political detainees in Welikkade prison.

The students also appealed the government to open a supply route to the Vanni areas and prevent starvation there and to find a political solution to the conflict by negotiating with the Liberation Tigers with a third party mediation.
