Ki'linochchi mobilizes against SL military-led Sinhala Buddhicisation of Tamil homeland

[TamilNet, Monday, 22 August 2016, 23:09 GMT]
Grassroots Tamil organisations from all parts of Ki'linochchi district on Monday staged one of the largest protests after the genocidal onslaught on Vanni, in which they demanded international justice for genocide committed against Eezham Tamils, de-militarisation, full resettlement of uprooted people and an immediate end to Sinhala Buddhicisation targeting the occupied Tamil homeland. NPC Councillors from Ki'lnocchi district and Tamil National Peoples Front took part in the protest, which was led by TNA Parliamentarian Sivagnanam Sritharan.



The mobilisation of more than 500 people marching from Paranthan Umaiyaa'l-puram Amman temple situated south of Elephant Pass to UNHRC Field Office in Ki'linochchi is seen as one of the biggest protests to take place in the Ki'linochchi district after the 2009 genocidal onslaught.

The International Community has failed to deliver international investigations and the IC should call for immediate investigations on missing persons instead of entertaining the SL State which has come up with eyewash measures, the TNA parliamentarians dependent on grassroot support said.

The organisers handed over an appeal at the Field Office of the UNHCR.

Another protest and shut-down is scheduled on 07 September in Ki'linochchi district.
