42 TPPs in Colombo join hunger-strike

[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 October 2018, 19:39 GMT]
Forty-two Tamil Political Prisoners in Colombo's Magazine Prison have joined the hunger-strike initiated by the TPPs in Anuradhapura prison on Wednesday. In the meantime, the health conditions of one of the twelve TPPs on hunger-strike worsened on Wednesday and the TPP has been transferred to hospital, the families of the TPPs said.

The SL State has consistently refused to recognise the imprisoned activists who were involved in the armed national liberation struggle of Tamil Eelam as political prisoners.

While the former JVP members, who were engaged in armed resistance in the South were recognised as political prisoners in the past, the genocidal State of Sri Lanka has continuously refused to accord a similar recognition to the Tamil prisoners.

The Tamil prisoners are Prisoners of War.

The Tamil National Alliance, which is collaborating with the Colombo regime according to the advice of the global actors involved in the geopolitics, is also blamed of downplaying the demands of the TPPs languishing in the prisons of genocidal Sri Lanka.
