More than thousand women and students participated in the event. Committees including undergrads formed in the event Sunday began their village-level awareness campaign to make the proposed Jaffna Tamil Resurgence Convention a success, sources said.

Jaffna Tamil Resurgence Convention is to be held to reiterate to the international community the legitimate political aspirations of the Tamil people in the Jaffna district, which has been embodied in the Vavuniya Declaration and later confirmed in the Killinochchi and Mullaitivu conventions, sources said.
