Massive demonstrations were held yesterday in front of Jaffna Main Bus Stand and in front of Vavuniya Bus Stand, demanding to release all political Prisoners immediately. Large number of people participated in these demonstrations organized by the relatives of Political Prisoners and Public Organization, and insisted the release of the political prisoners.
The demonstration which started at about 10.30 a.m. in front of the Jaffna Main Bus stand went in a procession through Hospital Road, up to Vembadi Junction and came back again to the Bus Stand. The condition of the three TPPs had become very serious as they are on their 15th day of fasting.
For about 30 minutes, the Hospital Road was blocked by the demonstrators. Later they dispersed saying that their struggle will be continued if the Government does provide a solution within few days. Finger prints were also made in support of the TPPs.
