In another bold act of defiance by Tamil students in the North-East, posters commemorating Tamil Eelam National Remembrance Day were seen posted around Jaffna University's campus on the eve of November 27th.

The posters, which had been posted in various faculties, as well as the Student's Union and canteen read slogans such as:

"The shape of the struggle may change but the goal of the struggle will never change."

"No matter how many obstacles come our way, we have vowed to revive the ambitions of our martyrs."

"We will rise and rise again after every fall. Does the valour of the tigers know any bound?"

"We will stand in the path of our leader (Annan) to achieve Tamil Eelam."

The posters were taken down shortly after being discovered.

Similar posters of remembrance have also been seen at Vantharamullai Eastern university and Trincomalee reports LankaSriNews. The posters were taken down my military personnel the newspaper alleges.
