One year of street protests for their land (video) Featured

People of Kepapulav accuse the government of indifference a year after they began streets protests to demand their land being occupied by the Army, according to ceylonjournals.

Yesterday (01), they staged yet another agitation and stressed that their peaceful struggle for the lost land would continue.

Mullaitivu district court judge S. Lenin Kumar has taken up a case filed by Mulliyaveli police against a protest they held on February 04 and ruled it was their right to stage a demonstration, but said they should protest peacefully.

The people allege the Army was occupying 181 acres of their land.
