Many diaspora Eezham Tamil youths from European countries participated in the ‘Tamil Youth Conference 2010’ held Saturday in Dusseldorf in Germany with the aim of getting to know talented youths engaged in diverse pursuits and to set up a creative website connecting them. The participants shared their views related to the political situation in their homeland, the miserable life of the people there and the confusion prevailing among expatriate Eezham Tamils. The Conference is the outcome of the first effort to rally the diaspora Eehzam Tamil youths in a meeting without leanings to any particular organization, Sanjeevkanth Luxshumikumar, a digital media artist from Germany and one of the organizers of the event said. It is our intention to hold this conference annually and in a large scale, he added.

The aim and need of the conference was explained to the participants by the organizers then.

“The people in our homeland live amidst misery and despair while those abroad are confused, but all of us dream of ‘Tamil Eezham’. We have a clear vision and the urge to fight oppression. Like it or not we continue to function.

Everything for us centers on the motto that ‘We are subjects of no one’. Our desire is to emerge liberated with uniqueness and progress. We may belong to different fields but our duty is the same.
