Apr 23, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main Tamil party, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), will call for Tamils' right to self-determination at its May Day rally scheduled to be held in Chavakachcheri.

TNA Jaffna District parliamentarian Mavai Senathirajah has said the TNA would celebrate May Day this year under the theme of the right to self-determination as well as issues including the cost of living, unemployment, resettlement and land grabbing. He explained that the people in the North and East have been affected by these issues.

Mr. Senathirajah told the media that the TNA will also call on the military to release all privately owned land to allow farmers whose lands are under military custody to carry out their livelihoods.

Members of the TNA, Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran, provincial ministers and councilors, and members of other local bodies will attend the May Day rally.
