”Break the silence” – diaspora Tamils urge Norway

[TamilNet, Sunday, 26 April 2009, 18:03 GMT]
More than 500 diaspora Tamils in Oslo staged a demonstration with their mouths bound in white bands as a symbol of the silence maintained by the Norwegian government in the face of the unfolding genocide of innocent Tamils in Vanni, in front of Norwegian Parliament Sunday from 2:00 p.m till 3:30 p.m, urging Norway to break its damaging silence and to actively engage in finding a justified solution to the ethnic issue in Sri Lanka, sources in Oslo said. The demonstrators appealed to Norway to thrust aside its silence maintained so far and to act before it is too late.

Meanwhile, the hunger strike observed in front of Norway Parliament by the President of Tamil Sangam in Oslo to draw the attention of the Norwegian government and the International Community to the continuing genocide of Tamils in Vanni by Sri Lanka armed forces, continues for the seventh day.

The fasting protestor is forced to spend the nights in a church located close to the Main Library in Oslo due to the cold weather.

Meanwhile, more than 1500 diaspora Tamils in Norway gathered in front of Norway Prime Minister’s office Saturday from 1:00 p.m to 3:00 p.m in an effort to urge Norway break its silence maintained unaffected by the genocide of the Tamils in Vanni by unrelenting attacks by Sri Lanka Armed forces.
