Posters call upon the occupying forces to leave Jaffna
Posters have begun to appear across Jaffna asking for the occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and the paramilitaries that operate under the SLA to leave the peninsula.
The calls have come amid an increase in tension and SLA perpetrated violence in the area.
Several civilians have been killed or seriously injured in incidents of arbitrary violence since the election victory of the extremist President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Voter turn out in Jaffna for the elections was less than 1%.
