[TamilNet, Monday, 07 August 2000, 16:36 GMT]
Thousands of radical leftist Janata Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) cadres Monday protested in several parts of Sri Lanka against the new constitution bill. The JVP demonstrated against the new system of elections proposed by the government in front of the supreme court in Colombo. Protests by the party against the constitution bill were held today in downtown Colombo and the provincial towns of Kandy, Galle and Matara.

The JVP also put out posters in Sinhala and Tamil all parts of the island except the north and east denouncing the new constitution bill. The party said that it will continue its agitation until the bill is defeated completely.

The JVP says that the bill will pave the way for the division of the country.
