In a press release, Mr.T.Mahasivam, General Secretary of the CTTU, requested students, teachers and principals to attend schools in the north-east province, as usual on December 1 with black bands pinned on their shirts.

Mr.Mahasivam also announced that CTTU will launch a three-day compaign starting on December 1st to collect clothes and money for the displaced people, who has sought refuge in Madhu church.
