[Wed, 27 Jul 2016, 23:14 GMT]“Although I am involved in UNP politics for 46 years, I am first a Tamil in my heart. There is no denying that UNP is responsible on the accountability for 1983 pogrom and other governments in Colombo for the crimes committed during their regime,” said Batticaloa District UNP organiser, Aloysius Thambimuthu Masilamani, responding to a question on UNP's reaction to the issue raised this week by Northern Provincial Councillor M.K. Shivajilingam that how could Tamils expect Justice for 2009 genocidal crimes from the UNP regime, which has failed to deliver accountability for 1983 pogrom against Tamils for 33 years. “What happened on 23 July 1983 was nothing else than a genocide. “Even my political mentor Devanayagam described it as a barbaric act at that time and Cyril Mathew demanded him to withdraw that description. But, Denavayagam stood by it,” Mr Aloysius Masilamani told TamilNet. Full story >>

[Mon, 25 Jul 2016, 21:12 GMT]The United National Party (UNP) was responsible for the 1983 anti-Tamil pogrom. The current SL Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe was a cabinet minister in 1983 in the UNP regime. 33 years have elapsed. The UNP has totally failed to deliver accountability for the crimes to which it was responsible. How could one expect any justice or solution to come from the UNP for the genocidal crimes committed against Eezham Tamils in 2009, asked M.K. Shivajilingam, a veteran political leader of the Tamil Eelam Liberation Organisation (TELO) marking 33rd anniversary of Black July. The Black July memorial events were held in Jaffna and Trincomalee in the occupied country of Eezham Tamils on Monday. The memorial events in Jaffna were held at St. Mary's Church and at Nalloor Murukan temple. Full story >>

In the meantime, the University administration in Jaffna and the University Grants Commission jointly invited all students to the University promising conducive environment at the Faculty of Science and that education activities have resumed in several other faculties.

[Fri, 29 Jul 2016, 10:39 GMT]Muthalip Bawa Farook, a former parliamentarian representing Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) from Vanni electoral district, SM Sagee and Noor Mohammed Alam from Mannaar, who also represent the executive committee of the SLMC in North on Thursday said that their party, which has been struggling to maintain its integrity amidst the dividing politics of Colombo, has never been against the Tamil demand for a unified North-East. In fact, the SLMC’s stated party position was that there should be a distinct mechanism to ensure the rights of the Muslims in a unified North-East, the SLMC Vanni district representatives said. At the same time, the SLMC’s northern wing was seeking Northern Provincial Council (NPC) Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran and the NPC to do more in order to establish Tamil-Muslim unity at the provincial level. Full story >>

[Wed, 20 Jul 2016, 15:21 GMT]Northern Provincial Council (NPC) Chief Minister Justice C.V. Wigneswaran and NPC's Opposition Leader S. Thavarajah, issued a statement on Wednesday demanding a Commission of Inquiry with a broader mandate to investigate and report on the circumstances that led to the violent clash at the University of Jaffna on Saturday. Such incidents should not be viewed from a purely criminal law standpoint, the carefully worded statement by Justice Wigneswaran said adding that “when University Students have decided to resort to violence it is our responsibility to determine the underlying causes that had led to their behaviour.” The statement further said: “Merely condemning such incidents or punishing certain students after an inquiry would not be able to bring about understanding and unity.” Full story >>

If the new regime, which has came to power using Tamils‘ votes, didn’t want to respect the sentiments of Eezham Tamils, and if the SL President has sanctioned this illegitimate project, he has just invoked an act of aggression, not only against the Eezham Tamils, but also against the 70-million Tamils of Tamil Nadu,” NPC Councillor Vinthan Kanagaratnam told TamilNet on Monday. The public in Jaffna will raise against this move, he said. Full story >>

[Sat, 23 Jul 2016, 23:09 GMT]Reconciliation is about change of attitude in the minds of people. The authorities should have set precedence for such transformation through egalitarian practices. But, what has taken place on the ground was in sharp contradiction, especially in the practice of student selection to the universities in the island, said Senior Lecturer Dr J. Kennedy from the Faculty of Arts & Culture at the Eastern University in an interview to TamilNet on Saturday. Stating that proper investigations should reveal the patterns, the academic from the Department of Languages at the main Vanthaa'ru-moolai campus of the Eastern University said he personally believed external sources were influencing certain sections of Sinhala students to behave in a supremacist manner. Colombo's Ministry of Higher Education and the University Grants Commission (UGC) should prove their bona fides, he said. Full story >>
[Thu, 21 Jul 2016, 01:26 GMT]The origins of Eezham Tamil militant struggle are often attributed to the university admissions policy of Srimao Bandaranayake regime in the early 1970s. The attribution actually belittles the magnitude of the age-old genocidal tendency of the agent-State in the island. But, even this underrated lesson has not been learnt by current university engineers in genocidal Colombo and their masters outside, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island, citing the post-2009 manoeuvrings carried out in the universities and campuses in Jaffna, Batticaloa and Trincomalee in the country of Eezham Tamils.

[Thu, 28 Jul 2016, 23:42 GMT]SL Attorney General's Department is trying to transfer the cases of Tamil political prisoners to the courts in Colombo where it expects the judges not to dismiss the confessions obtained under torture from the Tamil prisoners, said the family of a 32-year-old Tamil political prisoner, Sulaxan Mathiyarasan. The Tamil political prisoner, detained since 18 May 2009, called off his hunger strike in February this year after SL Attorney General's Department promised action within 14 days. But, the Attorney General's Department has not only failed to live up to the promise, but it has also been trying to postpone and transfer the case away from Vavuniyaa High Court, Sulaxan's mother has complained to media.

[Tue, 19 Jul 2016, 23:15 GMT]Ethnic tension has been escalating over a period of time at the University of Jaffna recently and it culminated into the violent clash on Saturday, says Srinadaraj Kalaraj, the deputy secretary of non-academic staff at the University. He was blaming the military intelligence having allegiance towards different sections of politicians in the South as the main culprit for creating the violent tendency. Instead of investigating individual students, a proper investigation should focus on finding out the real reasons behind this tendency, he said. In the meantime, Human Rights Activist Rev Fr M Sakthivel told TamilNet that the SL military has not only occupied the lands of Tamils, but also the Universities in the North and East. They were also citing the trend of ethnic motivated violence in the Eastern University and at Badulla in the recent past. Full story >>

Sumeskanth, who was brutally assaulted by Sinhalese students on 24 May 2016 to appear for disciplinary investigations in Colombo to be held next week, informed student union sources at the main campus of the Eastern University in Vanthaa'rum-moolai in Batticaloa told TamilNet on Sunday. Sumeskanth was given very short notice to prepare his witnesses to attend for Colombo-based investigations and he has registered his objection to the Welfare branch, student leaders said questioning the motive behind conducting investigations in Colombo. The Sinhala students had attacked Mr Sumeskanth for posting and sharing a photo on Facebook from Tamil Genocide Remembrance Day. Full story >>

The Tamil Genocide by Sri LankaThe second edition with over 150 new pages traces the ongoing engagement in the Sri Lankan conflict of Professor Francis A. Boyle, an eminent American expert in international law, from the conflict’s last years to the present pursuit of UN recognition of the Tamil genocide and call for reparations. It is the first book to develop an authoritative case for genocide against the Government of Sri Lanka under international law. The book is available from Clarity Press, Amazon in soft cover or in Kindle version.
South Africa to Singapore: global Tamils grasping geopolitics to act: The South African conference held in Durban has come out with many demands that are dear to the heart of Tamils, such as demilitarisation, stopping Sinhala colonisation, repeal of the 6th Amendment to facilitate free negotiation etc. But the slip was still showing when the conference avoided the term genocide. What was more ironical that betrayed the deception was the slogan of the conference organizers that called the country they want to salvage as ‘Sri Lanka’, boldly written in Tamil.

Tamil leadership need not shy away or react to unfair challenge coming from Sumanthiran: Eezham Tamil polity seeking pardon from Tamil-speaking Muslims should be unassuming, but it should come in an enlightening way to the edification of the Colombo-centric agenda or the powers-guided agenda, pursued in the past as well as in the present. Otherwise, it may only amount to conferring impunity to the State in Colombo and its abettors.
