Citing China, Colombo blackmails USA to continue genocide abetment

[TamilNet, Friday, 18 July 2014, 00:15 GMT]
In the global geopolitical situation of today, China is gaining in ‘Sri Lanka’ by recognising its ‘potential’ and by not caring for the human rights yardstick, while the USA is falling behind by not doing so, was the message genocidal Sri Lanka wanted to convey in the USA through its ambassador and through a visiting parliamentarian and coordinating secretary to Mahinda Rajapaksa. If the island is allowed to continue any further under a single State that is congenitally genocidal, there will be no end to its blackmailing humanity indefinitely, through its so-called geopolitical importance by alternately inviting greedy Establishments of the world. If humanity wishes to teach a lesson to geopolitical terrorism, the paradigm-setting target is ‘Sri Lanka’, responded Tamil activists for alternative politics.

China gets 1200 acres in Trincomalee for ‘defence development’

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 15 July 2014, 19:54 GMT]
Around 1200 acres of land in the Trincomalee Town and Gravets division has recently been given to China on a long-term lease for ‘defence related development’ by genocidal Sri Lanka occupying the country of Eezham Tamils. An ‘agreement’ in this regard has been signed when Rajapaksa visited China, after Modi government coming to power in New Delhi, news sources in Trincomalee said. The stretch of land at the strategic China Bay area includes more than 20 warehouses that are in use since British times, temples, mosques, schools and houses. Meanwhile, TNA leader R. Sampanthan is privately advising Tamil activists not to raise any qualms about India getting the grabbed land at Champoor in Trincomalee, the news sources further said. China Bay and Champoor are located on the opposite sides of the Koddiyaara Bay of Trincomalee.

Terracotta artefacts of folk culture found in Mullaiththeevu

[TamilNet, Friday, 11 July 2014, 23:51 GMT]
A large number of terracotta images and other artefacts in sherds were found at an agricultural land in Chinna-Poovarasang-ku’lam in the Mullaiththeevu district of the country of Eezham Tamils this week. The villagers handed over the artefacts found in the private land to occupying Sri Lanka’s ‘Government Agent’ in Vavuniyaa, who in turn deposited them at the local museum in Vavuniyaa. However, occupying Sri Lanka’s military intelligence was after everyone involved in the discovery as well as the site, sources in the district told TamilNet. Meanwhile, some Tamil inscriptions have recently been found at Padaviya in the Anuradhapura district, but their contents and the present whereabouts of the stone slabs are now unknown, academic sources said.

Phil Miller, a researcher for Corporate Watch in London, who gave expert evidence on ‘British State complicity in genocide of the Tamil people’ at the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on Sri Lanka (Bremen Session), has brought out an updated report titled “Britain's Dirty War against the Tamil people - 1979–2009” published by the International Human Rights Association Bremen. “This report draws on original research conducted at the UK National Archives and from Freedom of Information requests, as well as pooling together disparate information that is available in the public domain,” Phill Miller says in the preface. Dr N. Malathy, a key member of NESoHR and author of ‘A Fleeting Moment in my Country’, who survived the genocidal onslaught on Vanni, introduces the report by Philip Miller to TamilNet readers.

‘Sri Lanka Army not a counterinsurgency force’

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 09 July 2014, 21:53 GMT]
Observing that the Sri Lanka army “cannot be separated from the wider political culture of entrenched Sinhala nationalism and militarism in which it exists” and the LTTE “was not a typical insurgency and is better considered as a de facto quasi-state with institutions covering taxation, policing, judiciary and public services”, it is unwise to consider the SLA as a counterinsurgency force, argues Rob Pinney, researcher at the Department of War Studies, King’s College London. In a paper published on Small Wars Journal on 23 June, the Mr. Pinney further concludes that “failure to address the political grievances of the Tamil population is likely to imperil the prospect of a durable peace.” A Tamil analyst, however, alludes to genocidal nature of the unitary Sinhala state as the prime reason of its “failure” to provide a political solution.

Australia PM Abbott praises genocidal Sri Lanka as "society at peace"

[TamilNet, Friday, 04 July 2014, 23:17 GMT]
Even as apprehensions are rising regarding reports that the Australian government has handed over 153 Tamil refugees to the Sri Lanka Navy, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has praised Sri Lanka, the island where a structural, protracted genocide is happening against the Eezham Tamil nation, as a "society at peace". Speaking to 3AW on Thursday, Abbott had further said that "there has been a lot of progress when it comes to human rights and the rule of law in Sri Lanka.'' However, the Tamil Refugee Council has said that at least 11 of the fleeing refugees had been tortured by the GoSL forces earlier. The Australian government, which had no concerns for the thousands of Eezham Tamils who were slaughtered in 2009 and ignored the plight of more than 146,000 Eezham Tamils reported missing, is determined to return the 153 refugees despite widespread criticism against the move.

Intellectual failure continues helping genocidal Sri Lanka in twisting case

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 02 July 2014, 23:48 GMT]
The failure of international intellectuals preoccupied with Middle East, Latin America and Russia, in spelling out and highlighting the singular and precarious civilizational paradigm that is currently experimented by world imperialisms through the genocidal State of Sri Lanka, continues to help the ‘eel-diplomacy’ of the State in justifying itself and the agenda of its imperial masters, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island, responding to a recent article by Noam Chomsky. The article by Chomsky this week effectively exposes the US imperialism, but absence of exposure of the ‘Sri Lanka’ model help the State to put on ‘nationalist’ garb to smokescreen the genocidal engineering of imperialism in a paradigm-setting part of the world, the activists said.

Eezham Tamils and duplicity of West’s human rights campaigns

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 June 2014, 23:28 GMT]
The progress in women security achieved through liberation movements in Asia are more substantive than any that was achieved or could be achieved by the campaigns of the West-activists. Yet, why do they ignore the former and focus only on the latter? Is it because it gives the West-activists and by implication those in the West in general the moral high ground to look down upon the “others”, asks Dr. N. Malathy, in an article sent to TamilNet. Discussing the topic through the Eezham Tamil case study, and comparing the West-activists’ campaign on child soldiers then and sexualised violence against women now, she is bringing out the duplicities and deficiencies inherent in the human rights campaigns run by West-activists.

Navi Pillai asserts investigation undeterred by non-cooperation

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 25 June 2014, 23:49 GMT]
Reiterating her encouragement to “government and people of Sri Lanka” to cooperate with the OHCHR investigation, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Ms. Navanetham Pillai added that the investigation would still go ahead undeterred if such cooperation was not forthcoming, reported UN Human Rights News Release on Wednesday. There are two facets to the sabotage of any investigation of truth. One is the freedom given to the Colombo government to engage in all sorts of intimidation, and the latest is the use of PTA, as revealed by a London meet on Tuesday. But the other, and the more precarious one, is certain powers grooming the genocidal Sinhala military into a neo-lascarin force for imperialist agenda in the region, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island.

Genocidal Sri Lanka shields terror against Tamil Muslims

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 June 2014, 08:27 GMT]
The legal and police system of the Sri Lankan State was indirectly aiding the Sinhala extremist mob to incite violence against Muslims in Aluthgama and Durgah-nagar in Kalutura district, Muslim reporters from Kalutara told TamilNet on Tuesday. The shut-down of mobile communications and the curfew imposed by the Sri Lankan State also strengthened the hands of the Sinhala Buddhist extremist Bodu Bala Sena mobs that went amok on innocent Tamil-speaking Muslim villagers in Beruwala, Alutgama, Kotapitiya, Meeripenna and Adigarigoda. In the meantime, journalists, Muslim politicians and activists who rushed to Kalurara to witness the anti-Muslim violence were blocked at road barriers. Even those who attended the funeral of the three slain Muslim youth were also attacked Monday evening by a Sinhala extremist mob.
