Jaffna University students stage protest march

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 22 November 2000, 22:23 GMT]
Hundreds University students Wednesday morning marched through the roads of Jaffna town and burnt photographs of President Chandrika Kumaratunge and Minister of North-eastern Rehabilitation, and leader of the EPDP, Douglas Devananda. The students were protesting against the murder of journalist M.Nimalarajan and the brutal massacre of 31 detainees at a detention centre at Bindunuwewa in Bandarawela last month.

Sources in Jaffna said nearly 2000 undergraduates joined the procession, shouting slogans from the Jaffna University premises, defying the order of the Vice Chancellor.

The procession reached the Jaffna Secretariat (Administrative centre) around 11 a.m. where the protestors set light to the photographs.

The students handed over to the Jaffna's Government Agent K.Shanmuganathan a memorandum addressed to President Kumaratunge.
