Uprooted Keappaa-pulavu families inspire struggling masses in North

[TamilNet, Monday, 20 February 2017, 22:03 GMT]
Uprooted Eezham Tamils in Vanni who have been repeatedly protesting in the past against the genocidal land grab of occupying ‘Sri Lanka’ and got deceived each time either by the regime in Colombo or by the Tamil politicians of the ITAK in the past, are now drawing inspiration from the continuous struggle being waged by the uprooted people of Keappaa-pulavu and Pulak-kudiyiruppu along Nanthik-kadal in Mullaiththeevu. The families of uprooted Tamils in Puthukkudiyiruppu (PTK) in the district have also been on a continuous protest in front of the SL Army base at the heart of PTK. On Monday, landowners at Paravip-paagnchaan in Ki’linochchi resumed their protest demanding their lands that have been seized by the SL military since 2009.

The uprooted Tamils from Valikaamam North in Jaffna and the student community along with the civil groups in Jaffna have vowed to bring a mass struggle demanding de-militarization and international guarantee for protecting the nation of Eezham Tamils from all forms of genocide.
