Italian Tamils march to raise awareness about Tamils plight in Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Thursday, 23 October 2008, 20:29 GMT]
More than two thousand diaspora Tamils in Southern Italy marched Thursday from Piazza Politama to the Palermo office of the Internal Affairs Ministry to hand over an appeal urging awareness on the plight of the Eezham Tamils in Vanni and elsewhere in the island of Sri Lanka.


The demonstrators who gathered at Piazza Politama marched towards the ministry office via Kavuru shouting slogans against the Government of Sri Lanka and its president Mahinda Rajapkasa. They also carried a picture depicting Mahinda Rajapaksa as a killer of innocent Tamil civilians who were subjected to economic blockade, refusal of humanitarian supplies, subjected to extra-judicial abductions, extortion, killings and targeted military attacks such as aerial bombardment, artillery barrage and explosions triggered by covert attacks by the Deep Penetration Unit of the Sri Lanka Army.
