Kilinochchi to hold Tamil Resurgence celebrations

[TamilNet, Thursday, 25 August 2005, 15:40 GMT]
In a press meet held at the Cultural Hall in Kilinochchi Tuesday, T Prabakaran, head of the Event Mobilization group, requested the attending journalists to provide publicity for the event to be held 1 September from 3 pm to midnight, and to publish historic articles describing the Tamil national movements in Kilinochchi district, sources attending the meeting said.

One of the key features of the event is the anticipated movement of more than 15,000 villagers from Akkarayan to Kilinochchi. This is being planned as a symbolic gesture to commemorate the 1987 displacement of large sections of Kilinochchi residents to Akkarayan to escape from the SLA shelling.

Organizers say that they expect close to 100,000 to attend the event.

"With tension escalating due to the increasing number of killings in the Northeast, it is necessary to demonstrate peoples power in combating excesses of the State," Mr Prabakaran said.
