Thousands gather in Geneva denouncing deceptive deliberations

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 06 March 2012, 17:25 GMT]
While the USA and Sri Lanka and their respective blocs at UNHRC squabble whether the LLRC machination against the nation of Eezham Tamils has to be left to Sri Lanka or internationally monitored in implementation, thousands of Eezham Tamils gathered in Geneva on Monday, denounced the deceptive deliberations and demanded international investigation on the genocide, recognition of the sovereignty of the nation of Eezham Tamils and called for a UN-sponsored referendum among Tamils in the island and in the diaspora. The demonstration organized by Walk for Justice and backed by the Tamil Coordination Committees (TCC) of various countries in the Europe also demanded the immediate release of detainees in the island and removal of occupying Sinhala military from the Tamil homeland.

In a letter addressed to the UNHRC chief Ms Navaneetham Pillai, presenting the demands on behalf of the demonstrators, Walk For Justice welcomed the recent resolution of the European Parliament calling for international investigations and expressed its regrets over the lack of will among the powers.

“Despite the deceptions, duplicity and double standards that the Eelam Tamil nation has witnessed, even today we are gathered showing last bit of faith in the international order,” the letter said in making the demands.

Having such an ability to mobilize the masses, the Eezham Tamil polity in the diaspora was conspicuously silent for long in allowing the deceptions to take place and in targeting the right places where the demands have to be addressed by the masses, diaspora watchers commented.
