Japan accused of aiding Sri Lanka's war against Tamils

[TamilNet, Friday, 06 March 2009, 06:00 GMT]
U.S. Tamils plan to protest in front of Japanese Embassy located at 2520 Massachusetts Ave, Washington D.C. Friday urging Japan to stop funding Sri Lanka's war against Tamils, and appealed to Tamils world-wide to boycott Japanese goods, organizers of the protest said. Japan is the top contributor in aid to Sri Lanka, providing $350m a year of the nearly $1 billion Sri Lanka receives in bilateral/multilateral aid, loans from aid agencies and other countries.

The protest will move to the front of U.S. State Department located at 2201 C Street NW, after the first event.

"We are actively promoting trade boycott of Japanese goods among Tamils in Malaysia, South Africa and in Tamil Nadu. A strong participation in the boycott by Tamil world-wide can bring a significant impact to Japanese trade in electronic goods and automobiles," the protest organizers said.
