Trinco prepares to hold Resurgence Convention

[TamilNet, Thursday, 13 October 2005, 16:54 GMT]
The Tamil National Resurgence Conventions (TNRC) are being held in the northeast province at district level to urge the international community to recognize the self determination right of Tamil people as Sri Lankan government has failed to find a satisfactory political solution to the Tamil national question, said Mr.R.Sampanthan, Trincomalee district parliamentarian and the parliamentary group leader of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) addressing one in a series of awareness meetings in Trincomalee during the weekend. The convention is to be held in Trincomalee on 22 October at the Youth Playground, from 9 a.m. till 12 noon.



The venue is located between the Trincomalee harbour and the Provincial Governor's Secretariat, sources said. "Tamil youths took to arms as a retaliatory act when State armed forces with the patronage of governments in power unleashed violence and pogrom against Tamil people from the time Sri Lanka gained independence. Successive governments of Sri Lanka have dishonored agreements entered into with moderate Tamil leaders to find political solution for the Tamil national question," said Mr.Sampanthan.

"Time has come for the international community to recognize the self-determination of Tamil people and their freedom struggle," Mr.Sampanthan further said.
