Tamil students burnt symbolic copies of the 13th Amendment at a protest at Va'l'luvar Koaddam, Chennai on Sunday, urging that only an internationally monitored referendum could provide a solution to the national question of the Eezham Tamil nation. The protestors also called for the expulsion of genocidal Sri Lanka from the Commonwealth.

The protest was organized by newly formed students’ group ‘Balachandran Students’ Movement’, named after the youngest son of the LTTE leader V. Pirapaharan.

A press release by the protestors asserted that the 13th Amendment cannot even be considered as a temporary solution to the Eezham Tamils’ problem and that the NPC was being staged only to legitimize Sri Lanka in front of the international community.
