LTTE front called protest rally against MR at UN

(September 22, New York, Sri Lanka Guardian) One of Fronts of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) the Tamils Against Genocide having arranged for ongoing war, the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa has the audacity to come and address the UN to justify his actions as war against terror.

‘Protest Rally in front of UN in New York - Wednesday Sept. 24 - 9:30am - 2:00p,’ the front said in a statement.

According to the Statement, “Tamil civilians in Tamil Eelam (northeast of the island now called Sri Lanka) are facing starvation, displacement, abductions and killings by the Sinhala majority-dominated government and their armed forces and paramilitary collaborators.”

“The scale of the atrocities has approached genocidal proportions similar to the Armenian, Jewish, Ruwandan and Darfur genocides,” it added

“The European Union, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa (and perhaps Israel) have stopped all military sales and economic aid to the Sri Lanka government. Unfortunately, Iran, China, India and Pakistan continue to supply lethal arms and economic aid to the Sri Lankan government, enabling it to continue a genocidal war against the Tamil Nation under the guise of fighting terrorism.”

“Last week the Sri Lankan government directed all Aid Agencies and other INGO’s to immediately leave the overwhelmingly Tamil Vanni region. Most, including the UN obliged, with the exception of the ICRC. The Government has set the stage for a war without witnesses. The intent is genocide.”
