Tamils, Muslims in Mannaar jointly protest against Syrian onslaught

[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 March 2018, 17:53 GMT]
“All the superpowers have been pouring weapons into Syrian civil war aggravating the bloodbath. Playing global power politics on innocent peoples' lives should be strongly condemned. Eezham Tamils have not forgotten how more than 40 countries, including the USA, China and Russia were directly or indirectly abetting the genocidal onslaught of Eezham Tamils tilting the diplomatic and military power of the Tamils in the conflict. Don't play your global and politics on innocent people's lives. We see this repeating again and again and stand in solidarity with the affected people of humanity,” said Tamil activist V.S. Sivakaran, who mobilised Tamil-speaking people in Mannaar for a protest on Saturday.

The UN has seriously failed in its responsibility to avert the situation being plunged into mass scale slaughter for a long time now, the protesters said.

The protesters also urged the Islamic countries to come together and take a unified stand in saving the innocent lives in Syria.

The global powers were either abetting or watching silently without doing anything as the genocidal onslaught was unfolding in Vanni in 2009. We see the same pattern again in other places, Mr Sivakaran said.

Mr Sivakaran is the chairman of the Federation of Community Based Organisations in Mannaar, which organised the protest.
