More than one hundred representatives of fisheries trade unions and community organisations from Mullaiththeevu, Vadamaraadchi East, Poonakari and Mannaar spent two hours with the LTTE Political Head. The meeting was presided over by Vinaayakam, deputy commander of the Sea Tigers.

They discussed in detail issues ranging from fresh water supply, internal displacement, Sri Lanka Air Force indiscriminate air attacks, economic blockade and attacks on fishermen by the Sri Lanka Navy.

"The fishermen community bears the brunt of Colombo's oppression and extermination through various means," Nadesan said, addressing the representatives. He assured the representatives of LTTE's active engagement to ensure sustainable living conditions in the war-ravaged environment.
