French Tamils protest against killing of Tamils by Sri Lanka State

[TamilNet, Saturday, 25 October 2008, 13:30 GMT]
Hundreds of French Tamils in the east of France assembled in front of the European Parliment in Strasbourg between 3:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Friday, and demonstrated against the killing of Tamils, and aerial bombardment in the civilian settlements in the North East, sources in France said. The demonstrators carried pictures of tamils killed by aerial bombings and artillery attacks. The Mayor of Strarsbourg, represented by the Deputy Mayor, Mr Eric Elkouby, showed his support for the demonstration by standing amidst the protesters under heavy rain, attendees to the protest said.

Condemning the silence of the International Community while genocide is being perpetrated against the Tamils, the protesters said the war against terror has turned victims into terrorists.

The protesters urged the European Community to organize transport of food and medical supplies to Vanni residents, and to lead the world community in finding a negotiated political settlement for the Sri Lanka conflict.

People carried placards and shouted slogans condemning the genocidal crimes of the Sri Lanka state against the Tamil people.

Mr Robert Evans, President of the Europeen Parliament's South Asia's group, accompanied by Mrs Jean Lambert, another member of this group, met the protesters and encouraged them in their effort to publicize the atrocities of the State, and added that they knew the grave situation in Vanni, and said that they were watching closely the developing situation in Sri Lanka.
