Thereafter large number of people went in a procession to the offices of the UNICEF and Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM). On behalf of the people Mr.K.Sivanesan, Jaffna district parliamentarian handed over memoranda to the representative of the UNICEF and Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) stationed in Killinochchi.

Demonstrations were also held in Visuvamadu organized by the Visuvamadu Civil Groups Forum (VCGF).

VCGF in a statement addressing to the international community said Tamils expected peace with the signing of the ceasefire agreement. Tamils further expected that they would lead peaceful life without fear in their homeland. Both did not materialize. Even the international community has failed to condemn the genocidal attacks launched by the State armed forces on Tamil people, the statement said.
