Human chain demonstration in Norway

[TamilNet, Friday, 06 March 2009, 16:11 GMT]
More than 700 Norwegian Tamils stood in line with joined hands forming long human chains Thursday around 5:00 p.m staring from the Oslo Central Railway Station up to National Theatre along both sides of Karl Johans Street protesting against attempts to force out Tamil civilians from their birth places to Sri Lanka Army concentration camps in government controlled areas outside Vanni. The demonstration organized by Norwegian Tamils’ Forum (NTF) ended around 6:00 p.m.

Men, women, children and young people stood braving the cold shouting slogans written on the placards and banners they held.

The demonstrators accused Sri Lanka government not only using shells and bombs but also taking human lives by not allowing food, water and medicine to the civilians crammed into a narrow strip of land in the genocide of Tamils by the Sinhalese Buddhist chauvinists.

  • We will not allow forcing out our people from their places to be handed over to the ethnic cleansing government and be held in its concentration camps.

  • We urge Norway and the International Community to exert pressure on Sri Lanka government to immediately dispatch food and medicine for the suffering Tamils in Vanni.



The above appeals were seen expressed in the slogans on the placards the demonstrators held.
