Expatriate Tamils in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, began a three day awareness campaign of the July 1983 events in Sri Lanka, Tamil Coordinting Committee officials in South Africa said. The event starting from 22nd July is being organized at the Chatsworth Shopping Center in Kwazulu Natal, with poster displays and screening of July 1983 and current events in Sri Lanka, organizers said.

More than twenty thousand people pass through the shopping center daily, one of the organizers said.

"We are showing documentaries on history as well as the current situation in Tamileelam on a wide screen to the many interested South Africans. We are also distributing information sheets that contain the history and latest situation on the ground detailing the atrocities being committed by the Sri Lankan Government," a Tamil South African helper at the event said.

"Several interested persons requested copies of the DVDs."
