General shut down in Jaffna, Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 June 2002, 13:49 GMT]
School, government offices, shops and business establishments were closed Wednesday in the Jaffna and Batticaloa districts in response to a call by the Consortium of Humanitarian Agencies (CHA) in Jaffna. The Jaffna CHA called the general shut down to protest against fishing restriction, destruction of coconut and palmyra farms in the northeast province and setting up of new camps in the northern peninsula.

Undergrads of the Jaffna University blocked the main Jaffna-Palaly road urging the Sri Lankan government to implement the cease-fire agreement fully.
