[b]LTTE agenda is to destroy the Tamil community utterly -- University Teachers of Jaffna[/b]

[b]Colombo, 30 December, ([/b] "The LTTE's agenda is nothing short of destroying the Tamil community utterly. It has indeed been a Black Christmas," says the University Teachers for Human Rights (Jaffna) (UTHR (J) ) in its least Bulletin, surveying the latest spate of violence in the north. UTHR (J) is an independent NGO presenting objective reports on both sides of the divide.

Nor is it a spontaneous people's movement, but is something orchestrated with a military agenda, the consequences of which the people are painfully aware, but are in terror of expressing. Against this silence enforced by fear, the media and even human rights organisations are picking up planted noises as the voice of the people."
