Thousands march in Vavuniya for peace

[TamilNet, Monday, 11 April 2005, 08:35 GMT]
More than three thousand people marched through Vavuniya town Monday demanding that the government of Sri Lanka restart the long stalled peace talks with the Liberation Tigers, set up a joint mechanism for Tsunami relief in the island's northeast and stop using its paramilitaries to attack LTTE activists . A public rally was held on the Vavuniya Urban Council grounds at the conclusion of the march. The march and rally were organised by 84 civil society groups in Vavuniya.

"The international community should tell us, the Tamil people, whether we should go back to war to achieve our legitimate rights or whether we should aimlessly pursue peace with the Sinhala government. We have to take a decide soon. We cannot tarry any more", said Mr. Selvam Adaikalanathan, addressing the rally Monday.

A memorandum to Sri Lanka President Chandrika Kumaratunga was handed over to Vavuniya Government Agent.
