Saluting the sacrifice of Salem based Tamil Nadu activist Vijayaraj, who had self-immolated protesting Mahinda Rajapaksa's visit to India and who succumbed to his burns on Tuesday, Eezham Tamils in the UK conveyed their solidarity to the protesting Tamils of Tamil Nadu, condemning India's welcome of the genocide-accused SL President. Demonstrating outside the Indian High Commission in London on Friday, the protesters further urged the Indian government to recognize the genocide of the Eezham Tamils.

The demonstrators in the UK further asked whether India was completely immune to the sentiments of the Tamils worldwide and the Tamils in Tamil Nadu by entertaining a representative of a state that was resposnible for one of the worst genocides in the 21st century, sources told TamilNet.

The demonstration in London was arranged by TCC-UK.
