The demands are as follows
The demands put forward by Parameswaran follow:
* Immediate and permanent ceasefire
* Food and medical aid should be allowed to reach the civilians immediately with international monitoring committees and allow “Mercy Mission to Vanni”
* UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, arrange to meet our representatives.
* Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam are our sole representatives and UK government should lift the ban on LTTE.
* UN should call for an immediate referendum to the Tamils regarding whether they want separate nation or to remain as Sri Lanka.
