Displaced families from Keppapulavu, Mullaitivu continued their protest for their lands on Monday, 610 days on.
Supported by local residents and students from the University of Jaffna, families held a demonstration despite the heavy rain.
In a letter to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the families pointed out that despite the release of some areas, "the lands of 104 families are still in the hands of Sri Lankan Security Forces."
"Our places of worship, homes, schools, play grounds, cemeteries and other buildings are in the hands of the Sri Lankan forces. We, including children and elderly continue our protest in extremely difficult environment under heavy rain in places in jungles. While we're struggling, our lands were being used by the Sri Lankan Forces and enjoy all the benefits."
