Further protest demanding release of Tamil political prisoners

Another protest took place today demanding that all Tamil political prisoners be released. 

The protest, which took the form of a symbolic hunger strike, in solidarity with the eight political prisoners at Anuradhapuram prison who have been protesting for their release, took place outside the Government Agent Office. 

Families and loved ones of the political prisoners took part in the protest and called for the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) to be abolished.
