The people of Iranaitheevu are to take their struggle insisting the redemption of their ancient lands from the Navy. They have planned to undertake an approach to their island in a number of Boats at 7.30 a.m. today from the Iranaimathanagar beach. More than 600 people are gearing up to go in more than 60 Boats for their struggle.
Their struggle for the redemption of their lands is going on for several months without any one taking notice of it. The people are continuing their struggle in thatched huts without any basic amneties even in heavy rains. In contravention to the promises given in meetings with the state Officials, the Navy is undertaking surveying with the help of Survey Department secretly, without the contribution of people.
This had caused suspicion on the promises given by State Officials. Hence the people are to take up this struggle, saying that they are prepared to be cheated again. Organizers had invited, public Organizations, Political Leaders and the public to participate in their struggle.
