Anti-Sri Lanka protests across TN towns

protest       Students, lawyers, political activists and even the public took to the streets across major cities and towns in Tamil Nadu, as protests against Sri Lanka peaked on Wednesday, just a day or so ahead of a vote in the ongoing UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva.Students of at least 50 arts and science colleges joined the protest, as hundreds went on processions in Madurai and Tiruchi.

Protests gathered in Ramanathapuram district too, with Sri Lankan Tamil refugees, government employees, autorickshaw drivers and the disabled community organising separate agitations in support of a strong resolution at the UNHRC denouncing Sri Lanka and calling for a credible international probe into war crimes there. In Coimbatore, more than 300 lawyers marched from the combined district sessions court complex and stormed into the office of the Income Tax department, breaking a police cordon.

A federation of associations of the disabled observed a day’s fast, with members gagging their mouths with black cloth near Aramanai in Ramanathapuram.
