A hartal has shut down transport and other services in the Northern and the Eastern Provinces today.  

Organizers of the protest demanded the government resolves issued raised by relatives of those missing during the armed conflict as well as long standing land issues faced by residents. 

Many shops have said to be shut down and public transport services have come to a standstill. 

The protestors said they were supported by several political parties including the Tamil National Alliance (TNA). (Romesh Madushanka and Sithum Chathurange)

    This country is built on racism and sarcasm none of your missing relatives will be ever found. and who ever is responsible to their disappearance would also not be punished but be protected. in this country the only protected citizens are the rich and the government members
