Right to expression is in danger - Protest was prevented in Jaffna on July 15th 2014

NAFSO and PA have organized the demonstration on 15th July 2014 in Jaffna to highlight the land grabbing issue and Resettlement issue of IDPs. However the government of Sri Lanka used its maximum power and prevent the protest by an court order. therefore we organized a meeting on the same day at the Weerasingam Hall in Jaffna and pressure the government to resettle the people as well as stop the Land grabbing.

A thousand people of all ethnicities and religions participate in a meeting to denounce the conditions in which the North’s Tamils are forced to live. Police desperately try to prevent the rally, even threatening some IDPs.thus we conducted the Mass rally at Weerasingam hall and delivered the message to the world.
