TNA calls for shut down in North, East of Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 27 January 2009, 12:31 GMT]
Tamil National Alliance (TNA) called upon the people in the North and East of Sri Lanka to observe a general shut down on Friday, the 30th of January, to protest against the killing of Tamil civilians by Sri Lanka armed forces. Several hundreds of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) assembled within the Colombo designated "safety zone" have died in the last four days from artillery and air strikes by Sri Lanka military.

The following is the appeal of the TNA to the people of the North and East:

More than 800 have been killed and more than a thousand of them injured in the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) artillery barrage and Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombings on the innocent Tamils civilians who had sought shelter in the very ‘safe zone’ declared by the government.

There are not enough medicine to treat the injured and the incessant shelling and bombing do not even allow the dead to be buried decently or to conduct their funeral.

Tamil National Alliance kindly requests the people in the Tamil Homeland of North and East to observe the Friday shut down in remembrance of the dead, to send live saving medicine to the injured and to urge the government to stop the shelling and bombing on innocent Tamils.

We seek the solidarity and support of the people in the Tamil Homeland to close all schools, offices, shops and transport services on Friday.
