The Sri Lankan embassy is in a side road north of Hyde Park, and there
was a long line of Tamils protesting
on the opposite side of the road. Tamils accuse Sri Lanka of genocide
and call on the UN to stop protecting them
Tamils say leading Sri Lankan politicians including President Gotabaya
Rajapaksa, prime minster Mahinda Rajapaksa
and former prime minister Ranil Wickremasinghe are war criminals
They call far an end to the military occupation of Tamil areas and
for self-determination for the Tamils in Sri Lanka
They want political prisoners in Sri Lanka to be released and for
justice over the many killings
'Justice to Victims - Right to Religion'
'Close down all secret camps and torture prisons'
The Sri Lankan government now says that the 20,000 people who ‘disappeared’
following the 2009 massacre
of Tamil-speaking people are dead - killed by the Sri Lankan authorities.
Tamils want details and justice.
