Student forum appeals to international community

[TamilNet, Friday, 19 May 2006, 18:59 GMT]
"We still believe that the international community would take into serious consideration the violence unleashed on the Tamil people by the Government of Sri Lanka through its armed forces," said Mr.Puratchi, Trincomalee district head of the Thamileelam Students Forum addressing representatives of several social service organizations Thursday evening in Verugal, in the Eachchilampathu division in Trincomalee district.

The Sri Lankan governments in power unleashed violence on Tamil people before LTTE took arms to achieve the legitimate political aspirations of Tamil people. The international community should take this aspect into serious consideration when weighing the current situation in the country, Mr.Puratchi said.

The international community is still maintaining silence when state armed forces are engaged in massacring Tamil civilians including four month old baby and four year old child. Tamil people are shocked to see the inaction of the international community when such massacres are taking place, Mr.Puratchi said.

The international community should have taken steps to condemn the Sri Lankan government and stop monetary and other aids. Still Tamil people expect justice from the international community. The liberation struggle of a race or a community cannot be labeled as terrorism. LTTE leader has clearly stated this in one his Hero's Day speeches, Mr.Puratchi pointed out.
