[TamilNet, Sunday, 08 July 2018, 19:06 GMT]
The Tamil National Peoples’ Front (TNPF) staged a protest outside the Jaffna Fort against the move by the occupying SL military to militarise a section of the Jaffna Fort. The TNPF protesters also blamed Emmanuel Arnold, the Mayor of Jaffna and the TNA politicians who collaborate with the SL Governor in North Reginald Cooray, who is advocating militarisation of Jaffna Fort.

Elected TNPF representatives of the civic bodies, civil society members and former NPC Minister P. Aiyngaranesan took part in the protest.

The protest went on for one hour.
