Participants at the demonstration organized by 'Norway Tamil Changam' drew attention of Norway Foreign Ministry to the more than 300 Tamil civilians killed in a single day in Vanni in Sri Lanka and the hundreds of injured civilians suffer without medical treatment or medicine.

"We demand Norway to condemn this genocide clearly and openly!", "Norway should not remain silent while people are being annihilated!" the demonstrators shouted.

On behalf of the Norwegian Tamils, the protesters appealed to the Foreign Minister of Government of Norway to:


  • Condemn Sri Lanka government openly!
  • Urge Sri Lanka to immediately enter into a ceasefire!
  • Exert pressure on Sri Lanka government to let humanitarian help and media into the war zone!
