my london diary

10 Years since Mullivaikkal massacre

London. Sat 18 May 2019



 Tamils met up in Stratton St, next to Green Park station

 With some long horns and Tamil Eelam flags

 

 A placard calls for the UN to stop protecting genocidal Sri OLank.

 

 

 

 

 Drummers prepare for the march

 

 and men dressed as prisoners in bloodied cloths along with their captors who threaten them

 

 Props for the march

 

 Velupillai Prabhakaran, founder and leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, killed by Sri Lankan Army in May 2009

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
     
 

 

 

 

 The Sri Lanka government’s census figures show that 146,679 Tamils remain unaccounted for since the end of the war,

 Guards aim sticks as guns at bloodied 'prisoners' on Piccadilly

 The LTTE was a presribed organisation but Tamils are now engaged in peaceful campaigns

 After the ceasefire there were meant to be transitional arrangements to give greater devolution - but it has yet to happen

 

 

 

 The Tamils want a referendum over independence

and an end to the occupation of their areas kkkkkkkkkkkkk
