Around 400 Norwegian Tamils gathered in front of United States Embassy in Oslo, Tuesday between 9:30 a.m and 10:30 a.m urging the U.S. Government to help stop the genocidal war on the Tamils in Vanni in Sri Lanka and to exert pressure on Sri Lanka Government to bring about an immediate cease fire. This is the fourth demonstration organized by Norwegian Tamils Federation within the last two weeks, sources in Oslo said. A representative of the American Embassy received the memorandum submitted by the demonstrators.

The memorandum further urged the U.S. to stop all its military assistance to Sri Lankan government.

‘Bring about a ceasefire in Sri Lanka!’, ‘Urge the Lankan govt. to stop the genocide!’, ‘Help us Obama!’. ‘Work for paradigm shift in Sri Lanka!’, ‘Focus on Tamils’ plights!’, ‘Act promptly!’ and ‘End Tamils’ sufferings!’ were the slogans the participants kept shouting throughout the demonstration.

The demonstration coincides with the swearing in of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America.
