The following sum up in english is provided by Nirmala Rajasingam
The BBC report says that large numbers of people have gathered to protest the land take over by the government for the Army in front of the Tellipalai pradesha secretariat. The BBC report says that the Army is preventing people from joining the protests and taking down the details of those who still manage to go through.
We need to ask why the government needs to take over private land for the Army, in an area which is militarised to the teeth. Land is scarce in the Jaffna peninsula which has always been densely populated. there are the lands of all those who have fled the country, but then there are thousands of displaced and landless peoplev including thosewho fled from the Vanni after the final war . People in the Vanni have also lostt their privately owned lands to an ever expanding military.
