TNA, People's Peace Front to hold joint seminars

[TamilNet, Monday, 11 October 2004, 00:19 GMT]
The Tamil Natinal Alliance (TNA) and the People's Peace Front (PPF) have reached an agreement to conduct common seminars in Sinhala areas in the South to explain the legitimacy of the demands of the Tamil people and the need to take forward the peace negotiations, political sources in Colombo said.

TNA Parliamentarians entrusted with the task of campaigning in the South and the representatives of the PPF decided on this strategy after discussions in Colombo Saturday.

It was decided at this meeting to invite representatives of over 200 organizations that constitute the PPF for an initial meeting in Colombo by the end of this month. Thereafter, the PPF representatives and TNA MPs will conduct some 50 joint seminars in central locations in the South as the first stage in their bid to impress on the people the urgent need for peace efforts to find a solution to the national question.

At these seminars TNA and PPF will attempt to convince the people on the urgent need for an interim administration for the North-East and the importance of starting peace negotiations immediately.

The team will also launch leaflet distribution and poster campaigns in Colombo and various other areas in the South in order to highlight the need for peace in Sri Lanka.

TNA MPs Suresh Premachandran, MK Sivajilingam, T Kangasabai, Sathasivam Kanagaratnam, Vino Nogarathalingam and Sivanathan Kishore participated in yesterday's talks.
