Release Tamil political prisoners urge protesters in Trinco

Protesters in Trincomalee on Tuesday called on the government to release Tamil political prisoners, many who have been detained for years without charge under Sri Lanka's notorious anti-terror legislation. 

The protest took place by the Sivan temple in Trincomalee and included a signature campaign, calling for the release of the detainees. 

The past two years have seen a number of protests across the North-East calling on the government to release political prisoners.
