UK Tamils remember Chegn-choalai massacre, condemn genocidal sex abuse

[TamilNet, Sunday, 24 August 2014, 22:01 GMT]
Tamils from UK gathered at Downing Street, London on Saturday to remember the Chegn-choalai (Sencholai) massacre and to condemn the ongoing genocidal sex abuse of Eezham Tamil women in the Tamil homeland by the occupying Sinhala forces. The protesters, most of whom were youth activists, held placards and banners stating that "Sri Lanka's LLRC report is a blueprint for genocide of Eelam Tamil nation" and demanding the UN to investigate genocide and conduct referendum for Tamil Eelam.

UK Tamils remember Chegn-choalai massacre


Chegn-choalai massacre of 61 Eezham Tamil schoolgirls happened on 14 August, 2006 when Sri Lankan Kfir jets bombed a children's home compound in Mullaiththeevu district.

Four Kfir jet bombers of the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) dropped 16 bombs on the premises of the Chegn-choalai children’s home in Vallipunam on Paranthan-Mullaiththeevu road.

The activists at the protest at Downing Street on Saturday observed that the failure of international community to recognize the clear genocidal intent of Sri Lanka in this act, emboldened it to continue with greater ferocity in later attacks.
