Overfishing by Sinhala intruders out of control, Tamil fishermen at the verge of anger

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 03 January 2017, 21:27 GMT]
While the number of families dependent on fishing in the five districts of Northern Province has sharply grown by 6,000 units within the five years since 2010, the coastal stretch dotted with fishing ‘paadu’s (sea beds falling within the scope of draw-nets of local fishermen) between Mullaiththeevu and Mukaththuvaaram have been drastically reduced due to the encroachment by intruding Sinhala fishermen from other provinces. According to the district-wise figures, there were 35,478 families, dependent on fishing as their livelihood in 2010. By November 2015, the figure had risen to 41,491 families due to resettlement and due to the lack of other income sources. The 19% growth of fishing families comes despite the most densely populated district in the North, the Jaffna district, registering the lowest population growth in the entire island.

Unabated construction of Kokku’laay vihara in 2016, a premonition of 2017 demographic genocide

[TamilNet, Friday, 30 December 2016, 22:25 GMT]
Totally undeterred by civil protests and interim orders coming from local authorities, the construction of the controversial Buddhist vihara has continued throughout the year in 2016 at the strategic coastal stretch at Kokku'laay in Mullaith-theevu district. The scheme, conceived as a project of Sinhalicisation to permanently wedge the territorial integrity of the homeland of Eezham Tamils, has been continued with the backing of occupying SL military and the blessings of various ministries under the so-called good governance of genocidal Sri Lanka. This act alone is enough to explain how the structural and demographic genocide against Eezham Tamils would be continued through the sophisticated constitutional process that seeks to permanently trap Eezham Tamils into the ‘territorial integrity’ of genocidal unitary ‘Sri Lanka’ in 2017, Tamil political observers in Vanni commented.

SL militarisation, ‘development’ to permanently wedge North-East under new Constitution

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 December 2016, 20:15 GMT]
Under the pretext of defending ‘national security’ and the so-called duty of ‘protecting sovereignty’ of genocidal Sri Lanka, Sinhala Army and Navy will be permanently stationed in the North and East. In the meantime, almost all the potential lands not utilised so far, will be seized by various mechanisms coming under the direct control of the unitary character of SL State. The powers in the future Provincial List, giving a fake impression of ‘federal character’, will not be useful in ensuring the demographic security of the nation of Eezham Tamils in the island, as they will not have any constitutional arrangement of ensuring their inalienable sovereign rights to their homeland. In the meantime, Colombo regime and its external partners are trying to woo Tamil votes for the new Constitution through the sophisticated talk of another ‘temporary’ merger of North and East, TNA sources said.

Poverty-stricken uprooted Tamils deceived to bribe SL military to become eligible for housing status

[TamilNet, Sunday, 25 December 2016, 17:01 GMT]
A Scandinavia-based media operative, who is a long-time collaborator of foreign intelligence Establishments and who has been working with the rulers of genocidal Sri Lanka against the freedom struggle of Eezham Tamils for decades, has now been deployed as a bribing agent, allegedly by the SL military commander in Jaffna Major, General Mahes Senanayake, in deceiving a number of poverty-stricken uprooted families from Valikaamam North to pay 50,000 rupees each to become ‘eligible’ as recipients of so-called ‘housing schemes’ being built by Colombo's Ministry of Resettlement and the occupying military. Between 60 to 80 families have already paid 50,000 rupees each through the media-operative, who has been deployed to trap the people to succumb to the designs of the genocidal military. Some sources put the number of families who succumbed to the trap as high as 200.

Resettled Sinhala farmers oppose genocidal colonisation of Tamil village in Mannaar

[TamilNet, Monday, 19 December 2016, 22:25 GMT]
28 Sinhala families, who displaced from Ko'ndaichchi Cashew farm to Anuradhapura in 1990 due to the war and resettled back in the Ko'ndaichchi farm in the predominant Tamil-speaking division of Musali during the regime of Rajapaksa, are also opposing the latest Sinhala colonisation moves that are being spearheaded by the occupying SL Navy in Paasith-then'ral village coming under the GS area of Ko'ndaichchi. The fertile lands, owned by Eezham Tamils and Tamil-speaking Muslims with land deeds going back to almost 100-years-old from the times of British rule, are now being taken over silently by the occupying SL Navy, which has put up a naval base right in front of Paasith-then'ral tank after seizing the area from the de-facto administration of the LTTE in 2007.

UN has abandoned Champoor Tamils: EPC Councillor

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 December 2016, 23:30 GMT]
The uprooted Eezham Tamils in Champoor were formally allowed to resettle in August 2015 and 906 families have moved into Champoor by March 2016. The Colombo government has failed to deliver even the basic facilities to the resettled people. So far, only 50 permanent houses have been built. Around 700 families were not provided with even temporary shelters. Only 350 temporary shelters were provided to the resettling people. More than one year have passed since people started to move in with hopes of resettlement. The Colombo government has even failed to provide assistance to government servants numbering around 110 among the uprooted people apart from latrines to 16 of them. When Tamil politicians approached UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, it simply said there was no funds allocated for the region, says EPC Councillor K. Nageswaran.

Kaaraikkaal message coming from New Delhi

[TamilNet, Friday, 16 December 2016, 23:16 GMT]
In a move of consensus between New Delhi and the foreign ministry of genocidal Sri Lanka, the Saiva pilgrims among Eezham Tamils will be permitted to travel by sea from KKS in Jaffna to Kaaraikkaal (New Delhi’s Union Territory coming under Pondichery), to visit the Chithamparam temple in Tamil Nadu during the Thiruvaathirai festival falling in early January 2017, news reports in Jaffna said. The choice of Kaaraikkaal is more significant in sending messages than the nation of Eezham Tamils in the island, enslaved both by Colombo and New Delhi, shown with the ‘concession’ of getting ‘permission’ to visit Chithamparam directly from Jaffna, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island.

Colombo intensifies military surveillance on Eezham Tamils

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 13 December 2016, 22:23 GMT]
The occupying military establishment of genocidal Sri Lanka has tightened its military intelligence grip on Eezham Tamils deploying various tactics within the last few days in Batticaloa, Trincomalee, Mullaiththeevu, Ki’linochchi, Jaffna and Mannaar, according to reports coming from all the corners of the occupied country of Eezham Tamils. Fresh deployments of so-called ‘Special Task Force’ commandos, a full-fledged combat military administratively coming under SL Police has been silently moved into several locations in the Jaffna peninsula ‘integrating’ SL military intelligence in a sophisticated manner. There are also fresh attempts to acquire lands for intelligence outfits being expanded in Jaffna. In the meantime, several new tactics are being deployed by the SL military intelligence in other parts of the Tamil homeland.

Alarming fall in fertility rate in genocide-affected nation of Eezham Tamils

[TamilNet, Sunday, 11 December 2016, 23:39 GMT]
The district with largest number of Eezham Tamil population in the entire island is Jaffna district. But, it is the district with lowest fertility-rate registered in the whole island. If Tamils fail to take proper measures to address the issue, their status will decline as the third ethnicity, ranking below Tamil-speaking Muslims by the year of 2028, according to the projection by Murali Vallipuranathan MBBS, who holds expertise in population studies. A systematic genocidal policy of birth control is being implemented against Tamils, the expert says with credible evidences and statistics. While controlling the birth rate among Tamils, there are systematic efforts to accelerate the birth rate among the Sinhalese, both by the SL State machinery and the sections of Sinhala extremist groups such as the Bodu Bala Sena (Buddhist Power Force) that function as pressure groups on the government.

Maithiripala regime steps up Sinhalicisation of Vavuniyaa North

[TamilNet, Saturday, 10 December 2016, 15:29 GMT]
Australian ‘development’ assistance was channelled through United Nations ‘development’ framework to renovate the irrigation canals at Thanik-kal, a Tamil village situated 15 km south of Nedung-kea’ni in Vavuniyaa North division. Accompanied with ‘development’ assistance, Sinhala rulers sketched out a blueprint for structural genocide against Eezham Tamils and Sinhala colonisation after 2009 during the regime of Mahinda Rajapaksa. The scheme is being aggressively implemented by the current regime of Maithiripala Sirisena, which has systematically deprived the original Tamil villagers from resettling in the village. The entire irrigation and the control over the canals are now under the Sinhala colonisers. More than 50% of the Tamil village has become a Sinhala colony, civil sources in Vavuniyaa told TamilNet on Saturday.
