The demonstration involved a large participation of students from different universities in London. Conveying solidarity with the students in the homeland, the protestors raised slogans that observance of remembrance events is a basic democratic right. Commenting on the recent harassment of the University faculty by the occupying SLA, Dr. Andy Higginbottom, principal lecturer in Politics and Human Rights at Kingston University, expressed his support for the JUTA. “The Jaffna University’s teachers have the right to organize and support the students. It is worrying that they are also being called for interrogation now. The The march today is imp to keep pressurising the UK govt, but we really need to involve to a greater extent the civil society in the UK, non-Tamil student unions, lecturers and others.” The protest march was organized by the TYO-UK.
